About Duncan E. Stafford
I was an early adopter of online video work having become accustomed to remote ways of working with distressed people as a Samaritan in the 1990s.
My current practice is based mainly on long-term, open-ended therapy, both in person and via video chat platforms. I have used video chat in thousands of consultations, and I find video chat work to be creative and intimate and to work well - even in sensitive areas of work such as attachment and trauma.
I trained at Cambridge University and I am a BACP registered and accredited counsellor / psychotherapist.
My physical practice for counselling, psychotherapy and couples therapy is based in North Somerset and central Bristol. As a long established therapist I offer a private, relaxed and informal space where you can talk in confidence about any troubling issues. I also supervise counsellors, psychotherapists and other mental health professionals.
I currently use FaceTime, VSee, Whereby, WhatsApp, Zoom and Skype as platforms for therapy. I will send you information about security, confidentiality and data protection to help you decide which platform feels best for you in your online work with me.
