We all face times in our lives when it’s hard to see the way ahead from our own: stuck, negative or anxious thoughts. CBT Counselling helps change these patterns of thinking in order to raise levels of mood and to think feel, and behave in more balanced ways.
I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor, in my 16th year in private practice. I work both short or long term, whichever feels right for you. My approach is down to earth, and encouraging. I use Cognitive Behavioural techniques to help with the above issues and I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
I have substantial experience of working with:
- anger management
- low self esteem
- domestic abuse
- relationship problems
- general feelings of sadness and feeling stuck in life
- supporting ADHD
- work stress
- lifestyle changes
- cutting back on alcohol
I believe, with the right therapeutic relationship, an individual will feel supported and able to explore thoughts, feelings and behaviours which may be contributing to unhappiness with self, relationship and in work situations.
I’m usually available at Castle Court on Cathedral Rd (city/bridge end) Central Cardiff. I am currently available for telephone sessions (during the Coronavirus restrictionists and safety measures) Monday~Friday.
In an initial assessment we can talk through your situation and discuss how my approach might help. In this session we may also decide on goals/changes to work towards. During the time that we agree to work together my aim is to create a relaxed, safe and warm and trusting alliance in the Counselling environment.
If you would prefer to speak to me directly please call me on: Mobile:07922254618 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org You can leave a message which is totally confidential and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
