Psychotherapist in central Bristol offering: Psychotherapy to Couples and Groups, along with Drama Based Work and Supervision .
Hello and welcome to these pages.
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 we move out of Spring and as has been the case with many workers; I have been working on-line or by telephone with individuals and couples during the pandemic. I have now negotiated a return to face to face work indoors with those who feel it is safe to do so.
As a matter of personal preference and judgement I will not be taking on any more clients for on-line work unless there is a further need for a lock down. Should such a move become necessary; I will return to my earlier practice of asking potential clients to meet me for a socially distanced walk in a local park as part of the mutual decision making process about working together.
AIongside the return to face to face working I am reshaping my practice to focus more on work with couples and groups; to this end I am not taking on any new individual psychotherapy clients.
Whilst still in central Bristol I have relocated from Cotham to Clifton Village.
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 in a confidential space and 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 in couples or, when we are able to restart - hopefully in Autumn 2022, in an ongoing weekly evening group.
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, Tuesday, Thursday face to face and on-line on Wednesdays 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.
