Shauna Hope

Counsellor and Counselling Supervisor

I believe that given the right circumstances,everyone has the capacity to feel happier and more fulfilled in their lives.

I offer short and long term counselling and supervision to counsellors and Mental Health professionals. I also work with other adults and young people (16+)’.

It’s often difficult to appreciate our uniqueness. Our life experience can cause us pain and complicate how we feel about ourselves; other people and life in general. It can also create punishing expectations. I remain open to hearing what is important to you, without making judgements or assumptions.

About Me

My counselling approach is underpinned by person-centred values of empathy, acceptance and authenticity. I use mindfulness, and enjoy working creatively. I feel very positive about the impact that counselling can have and I’m passionate about making it accessible and inclusive. I set up Bristol Counselling Outdoors and offer an indoor option at Centre for Whole Health (CWH). I am especially interested and experienced in work around:

  • Loss and Bereavement;
  • Work Related Stress;
  • Perfectionism and Self-Criticism;
  • Sense of Belonging and Inclusion:
  • Meaning and Purpose in life
  • Change, Uncertainty and Transitions.

I also have experience working with:

  • Depression and Low Mood
  • Stress and Anxiety
  • Confidence and Self-worth
  • Relationship issues

I have been offering counselling in many settings since 2002, including health centers, mental health charities, employee assistance and student counselling services.

I also have over 17 years’ experience of offering supervision to counsellors and workers in the mental health field.

I have been practicing Buddhist meditation since 2007.
