Hello my name is Christine Board, I am married with 2 grown up step sons. I am a Therapeutic Counsellor specialising in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and I work in the Bristol, Bath and South Gloucestershire Areas.

How I Can Help

I work on a one to one basis. Sessions are 50 minutes to 1 hour in length and usually take place on a weekly basis. CBT is centred on scientifically based research and gives me the facility to access a wide range of proven treatment interventions that can help you progress with your personal change and development process. I am available for sessions during the day and early evenings.

I am an experienced Counsellor/Psychotherapist and able to work with the following client base:

  • Individual One to One Therapy
  • Loss and Bereavement Therapy
  • Couples Therapy
  • Youth and Children's Therapy

CBT works well with the following conditions (this list is not exhaustive):

  • Generalised Anxiety
  • Social Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Low Self Esteem
  • Panic Disorder and Panic Attacks
  • Divorce and other relationship type problems
  • Eating Disorders
  • Abuse
  • Suicide

Since qualifying as a counsellor I have undertaken further studies and I am a qualified Cruse counsellor and can work very effectively with loss and bereavement.  I have an interest in working with Children and Youth and have gained great experience and insight in this field so I undertook further studies 2 years ago and followed a Post Qualifying Diploma working with Children and Youth.  I am an experienced couples counsellor and undertook Couple Dynamics training delivered by a Relate Trained Counsellor and can offer a safe place to talk and work through all types of relationship issues.  I have experience as a trainer where I co-facilitated an Introductory Course for 12 weeks to teach an Introduction to Listening Skills for 16 students at Network Counselling and Training in Bristol.  I am currenly working as part of the team for Marie Stopes as a Telephone Counsellor where I provide counselling around crisis pregnancy related issues.  Previously I was part of the Affordable Talk team at Talk in the Bay in Bristol where I was the only counsellor providing CBT Therapy to adults children and couples.  I am also comfortable to talk about issues around Spirituality, Christianity and other religions.
