Affiliations and accreditations

As counsellors we adhere to a professional code of practice which includes confidentiality, respect, impartiality and empathy. 

John and Ruth Doherty served as missionaries to Belgium for over 12 years, being involved in church growth and church planting. They have experience in a wide range of mission related issues, including cultural adaptation, stress, conflict and family concerns. Their counselling training with Waverley Abbey College integrated a professional approach with an understanding of Christian values.  

They offer counselling in person at a counselling centre in Bristol and online. They also offer debriefing for overseas workers on furlough or returning from the field. Member care support is offered online. They have a special interest in providing a confidential and safe space for exploring issues around burnout, conflicts and decision making.
