The Harbourside Practice Rooms are consulting rooms for independent talking therapists, counsellors, and psychologists. They consist of three refurbished, well-equipped therapy rooms and a comfortable waiting room in a landmark Georgian terrace with views from Bristol’s Redcliffe Parade East over the water towards Welsh Back, Castle Park and Queen’s Square.
The rooms provide a warm, comfortable, and accessible venue for clients and a credible and professional working environment for independent practitioners.
The rooms are set out for talking therapies with double doors and insulated floors but portable massage tables are available too. The waiting room has two two-seater sofas and access to the loo.
The rooms are all well lit and at roughly 10’ x 14’ they’re a good size for talking; neither cramped nor too big, cold, or impersonal.
We can also provide help in Polish, French and Spanish.
How it works
The practitioners working from the Harbourside Practice’s rooms are self-employed professionals who manage their own booking arrangements independently so you’ll need to contact them directly. Their contact details are under their entry in the ‘Our Therapists’ tab.
To work from the Harbourside Practice our practitioners must be qualified following a recognised course of instruction in the therapies they practise, must belong to a relevant professional organisation and adhere to their published Code of Ethics and Practice and Complaints and Disciplinary procedures and must have and maintain adequate Public Liability & Professional Indemnity Insurance.
We provide the rooms in which our practitioners practise and being on our website doesn’t represent an affirmation of their website entry’s content.
Accessibility and parking
Despite its city-centre location, accessibility is very good.
The Redcliffe Parade East local authority pay and display car park is literally over the road with spaces available at £1.50 for an hour and there is pay and display parking for up to 3 hours about 30 yards down the road and in nearby Jubilee Place and Guinea Street.
Bike parking: There is a motor-bike stand in the carpark opposite the Practice and Sheffield bars just by the church. Please don’t lock your bike to our neighbours’ railings.
There are steps down to the entrance.
Temple Meads railway station is an 8 minute walk away and the area is well served by various bus routes as well as the ferry.
The Practice Rooms are easy to find: just head for St Mary Redcliffe’s spire (or ask directions to St Mary Recliffe Sixth form college) and then you’ll see the unmissable big white Mercure Holland House Hotel. The Colosseum pub, to the right of the hotel, is on the corner of Redcliffe Parade East and the Practice is 100 yards up from that.
