Sally Harrold BSc(Hons) Midwifery, Pg D (Level 7), Hypnotherapy. Supervision.
I am a professionally qualified counsellor with over 15 years experience of working in the NHS and 3rd Sector, most recently for a cancer charity. I am qualified in integrative counselling and also systemic family counselling so i can work with individuals, couples and families. I am currently training for an accredited diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy and can incorporate deep relaxation and hypnotherapy practice into our work together if you wish. I have a special interest in relationships, LGBT, bereavement, health anxiety and pain and having worked as a midwife i also have an interest in issues around fertility, pregnancy loss, transitions to parenthood and adoption. I work from a few different practices within a 30 mile radius of Llandovery, mainly in Lampeter but also Carmarthen, Llandeilo and Builth Wells. I also work in Cardiff twice a month and can offer appts in north and central Cardiff. In some circumstances I can offer home visits.
Finding someone who has the right training and experience and to whom you feel you can talk with and relate to can be such a difficult balance. I am a warm, honest and strongly encouraging person and counsellor and believe that people are more resilient and resourceful than they sometimes realise. I believe that humour can be really important when connecting to one another and i always work in a way which is open to laughter and creative ways of working through issues. I am a keen artist and often use art/music and visualisation if it is appropriate and helpful to you. I would invite you to get in touch with me for a free initial telephone consultation to discuss your concerns and to see whether I might be the right person for you and if i'm not, then that is absolutely fine, honestly!

Areas of counselling I deal with
I have many years experience working with individuals, couples and families facing a range of difficulties or situations. Sometimes people only need one or two sessions and talking to someone who is completely separate from your everyday life can give you something objective and useful to take forward.
I have worked for many years in an NHS cancer setting, drugs+alcohol agency and rehab and also in womens health and have a deep understanding and working knowledge of issues around anxiety, depression, panic, bereavement and loss and also LGBT and relationship issues. I am currently training in clinical hypnotherapy and can incorporate hypnotherapy techniques and deep relaxation in sessions if that's something you would like to try.
Sessions are 60 minutes and cost £40 for individuals and £50 for couples or families. I offer concessions in some circumstances.
I can provide supervision for counsellors for £50 for 90 minutes For trainee counsellors and qualified counsellors who are training to be supervisors i can offer a reduced rate of £30 for 90 minutes subject to a block booking of 6 sessions. I can also offer dynamic and creative group supervision if you would like to have supervision with colleagues
Payment is by cash, bank transfer or cheque
