Bsc(Hons)MBACP Registered - Integrative Counsellor for 18+

About me

I'm an experienced Integrative Counsellor and a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). I'm based in Gorseinon (details when you enquire) and work with Adults 18+. 

I have experience of working with a wide range of issues such as anxiety, panic, depression, anger, stress, low self esteem and the lasting impacts of a difficult childhood. 

If you are feeling stuck or that you have lost your way, I can help you explore what you are feeling by offering you a safe, non-judgemental and confidential place to share what's on your mind. 

I also have experience of working with adults who have experienced abuse whether it be sexual, emotional, physical or domestic. My aim is to empower you and to help you to make sense of what’s happened to you. We can’t change the past but if I can help this sit more comfortably in your head this can go along way to helping you move forward with your life.

I have a Fee Structure which ranges from £30 to £40 depending on what option you go for. Details available on request. 

If you have any questions at all, please get in touch. The easiest way to do this is to send me an email or text with your contact details and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
