Dr. Farrah Collins
I am a chartered Counselling Psychologist registered with the Health and Care Professionals Council and the British Psychological Society. My educational background includes a BSc honours degree in Psychology and a doctorate in Counselling Psychology. In my practice, research, and training, I prioritize the therapeutic relationship, working from a relational stance.
I integrate various therapeutic approaches, including Person-Centered approaches, Psychodynamic Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, drawing from a diverse range of techniques to best meet the needs of my clients.
Throughout my career, I have gained extensive experience working with adolescents, adults, and older adults in both public and private settings. I have worked within the National Health Service, specifically in sexual health services, drug and alcohol services, and with individuals experiencing long-term mental health issues. Additionally, I have worked in community-based services for young people and women. From 2012 to 2017, I was employed in a secondary school where I implemented and managed a school-based counselling service. Since 2012, I have also been associated with Psychology Sussex and have maintained my own private practice as Brighton Counselling Psychologist.
Currently, I am practicing as a Counselling Psychologist in Bristol, offering one-to-one therapy sessions for individuals seeking therapy. I also provide remote therapy sessions, as well as training and supervision. With my broad range of experience, I am well-equipped to work with clients presenting diverse problems.
