Hello, I provide counselling and psychotherapy from Bangor, Gwynedd. I seek to offer a warm, human space where you will be met, heard and understood at a deep level.
My approach is based on 'Person-Centred' (a type of counselling and psychotherapy) ideas, arguably the most important of which is that within the right environment, everyone has an inner capacity to resolve their difficulties and move towards a satisfying and enhancing life.
Whilst acknowledging that the 'right environment' will be different for different people, it is this that I aim to create by listening closely for what matters to you. The intention being that through this it may be possible for you to see or perceive more clearly what matters to you, what might be right for you or what might be healing.
What this means in practice and how long it might take are difficult questions to answer - we are all unique and bring and seek different things in counselling. However, a first appointment will typically include me providing an overview of how I work, looking at your objectives and hopes for counselling, discussion of what's brought you to counselling and making a joint decision on the next step.
As for how long, some people derive great benefit from a small number of appointments ('sessions') while others prefer more. This might mean somewhere between 3 and 15 sessions though there is no right number. Appointments are usually once weekly though again it may be that something else works better for you.
Appointments are in Bangor and last an hour. The price is £35 per appointment (concessions available - please ask). I work weekdays and offer daytime and evening appointments.
I am an individual member of the BACP (one of the UK's main professional bodies for counsellors and psychotherapists) and work to their ethical framework which can be found here:

Training, qualifications & experience
My training is in Person-Centred and Experiential Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I have worked in different organisational settings, including NHS General Practice. I currently work on a private practice basis and for a charity offering psychological support to people who have suffered sexual abuse.
My experience therefore spans a broad range of distress and problems. Counselling is not only about addressing difficulty however and I have also worked with people seeking personal growth and those keen to look at how they might more readily attain important life objectives.
Areas of counselling I deal with
£35 for a 1 hour appointment (concessions available - please ask).
