I have 25 years of experience as an Adlerian counsellor. I also supervise and train counsellors from Introduction to Diploma level.
Normally that is before Covid 19 I worked out of the Adlerian Counselling Centre which has light airy premises in the town of Narberth, Pembrokeshire. During Lockdowns I have offered only face to face counselling ( distance observed) in my self contained office at my home in Narberth.
I work also with CBT and Person-Centred approaches if required or useful and all my work is done within the BACP ethical framework.
You are welcome to come for a first session, in confidential surroundings and see if the venue and the approach suits you. Counselling is a very personal thing and it has to feel 'right' to both the client and the counsellor. I will do my very best to work with you and support you in the challenges you face.

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.

I counsel between 1pm and 6 pm. Since Lockdown I have counselled face to face in my personal office at my home which has its own entrance and plenty of parking.
All of us at one time or another go through times of anxiety and stress. Often a good chat with a friend or a word or two over a pint in the pub put us right in no time. But sometimes we get stuck and then the problem goes round and round in our head causing us worry or constant upset and disturbing our sleep. That is the time to seek a bit of help from someone who is trained to look for underlying causes and ways of enabling you to move on.
But anxiety is only one of the many things we encounter on our journey through life. Crisis, Trauma, Bereavement or Abuse can also happen. All of these things are serious but many people go on to recover and enjoy life again.
Therapy might take only a few sessions or it may take longer. As an Adlerian Counsellor, I work very much as an equal with you and together we work out what is preferable. Recently I have had the privilege of working with a lot of clients suffering from relationship issues and also people on the bi-polar spectrum.
Do give me a call or e mail me. Don't suffer any longer that you have to. I'll get straight back to you.
