Robin Lewis

An experienced Counsellor offering one-to one counselling with adults and older teenagers.

About me

I am an experienced and qualified counsellor who has been seeing clients since 2002.

I have not only studied counselling to Masters level at Bristol University but have also in the past gone on to train and teach counselling for fourteen years. I have taught several hundred counselling trainees, most of whom have gone on to become successful counsellors in their own right. This has been personally rewarding and I believe has helped me enormously to become a skilled practitioner who is able to work safely and successfully with my clients.

My therapeutic work has been mainly working with adults on a one to one basis as a private and volunteer counsellor. I have worked up until recently as a student counsellor at a local sixth form college with sixteen to nineteen year old clients. I also taught this age group in colleges for twenty years up until 2006 so have a lot of experience working with young adults and adolescents.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, complying with their ethical framework, and regularly undertake continuous professional development.

What I offer

I offer one-to one counselling with adults and older teenagers and am now not only offering online counselling via Zoom but also seeing clients face to face at Ownzone in Stroud.

The reasons why people come to me are many and varied. They include difficulties like confusion, overload, anxiety, depression, lack of direction, feeling stuck, work issues, confidence, jealousy, sexuality, loneliness, anger, recovering from addiction, harm, trauma, relationships, loss, bereavement and coping with life in general. I have found most people have a combination of these and other issues can arise from them. Often it is important to have the time and space to talk to someone who has the skills, approach and experience to help you through difficult and challenging periods in your life.

My main aim is to start by building a strong, warm, collaborative, working relationship. During this time we can together explore what is going on and endeavour to find some clarity. I have found that this in itself can be very important for clients. Then, when you are ready, we explore a little deeper and we can move towards looking at some possible changes that might help to make life more manageable, rewarding and fulfilling. My way of working means that I will endeavour to work alongside you in a ‘two heads are better than one’ approach.
