Psychotherapist in central Bristol offering: Psychotherapy to Individuals, Couples and Groups, along with Drama Based Work and Supervision .

Hello and welcome to these pages.

I am currently on leave until September 1st. Following that I will be based in a new space in Clifton Village, Bristol.

My name is Tone Horwood, I am a Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapist and former Dramatherapist with over forty years experience of working therapeutically with people in a variety of settings both in the public sector - National Health Service and the Probation Service - and in private practice.

As is the case with many workers; I am currently working on-line or by telephone with individuals and couples until it is shown to be safe to return to face to face sessions indoors. I am cautiously hopeful that a return to face to face meetings will be safe enough come September.

In response to the continuing threat posed by the C-19 virus and my own reservations about starting work with new clients on-line I am now offering a socially distanced meeting/walk for half an hour in a park in South Bristol as way of meeting potential new clients in person. I'm doing this in the hope that it will give both of us better information when it comes to assessing if we want to work together.
I am currently not charging for this meeting as, although it seems to be working well for both prospective clients and myself, it is still very much an experimental venture at this point.

In more normal times I offer individual Psychotherapy, Couples' Psychotherapy, Group Psychotherapy and Drama based work in central Bristol. Groupwork and Drama based work is currently suspended until it can be safely done face to face.

I also offer supervision to Psychotherapists, Counsellors, Arts Therapists and to workers in allied client facing occupations such as Social Work, Medicine the Law or Education, for example, who feel that they may benefit from time to reflect on their practice with input from a psychotherapeutic perspective.

People come into psychotherapy for all kinds of reasons and I trust that I will be able to meet you and get alongside you wherever you are in your life's journey.

Whatever it is that you may bring, my offer as a Psychotherapist is to work with you as a whole person, not just as the bearer of your symptom(s) or distress. I work with people not symptoms or disorders.

"Only you can do it, but you don't have to do it alone." John Rowan.

My intention is to be alongside you, whilst keeping out of your way, as we explore whatever it is that you may bring.

Psychotherapy with adults can be one to one, in couples or, when we are able to restart - hopefully later in 2021, in an ongoing weekly group.

Drama based work is offered individually or in groups.

Supervision can be undertaken one to one or in a small group.

- I am currently exploring the possibility of offering groupwork to couples in partnership with a co-worker once it becomes safe to do so. More on this on the Work with Couples page.
- Another new venture at an early stage of exploration/development involves working with an established therapist who uses equine assisted psychotherapy on the possibility of combining that work with a drama based approach for use with younger clients. More on this under the Drama based heading as the exploration continues.

I am available Monday to Thursday on-line from mid-morning until early evening.

Alongside the work in central Bristol, where time and distance permit; I also enjoy, and have considerable experience in, making group based contributions to established trainings, staff groups or conferences in the UK or abroad.

See the following pages for more information on each of these areas of my work as a psychotherapist.
