Fda Integrative Counsellor

About me

COVID -19 I will be offering online counselling via Skype or Zoom

Are you finding anxiety, stress, loss, bereavement or Trauma impacting your personal life or relationships?  Would you like to have a better understanding of how this impacts your day and work through this to achieve your desired outcome?

I am a qualified integrative counsellor with a caring and empathetic approach.  I can understand how hard it can be to ask for help which is so personal and private, so I will offer you a safe space to help you explore your thoughts and feelings in complete confidence.

I am a registered member of the BACP and work from my own private practice based in Lampeter.  I also support West Wales Domestic Abuse service, the DPJ Foundation and employee assisted programmes.

Individuals

I work with individuals on a one to one basis. I have helped clients with anxiety, depression, loneliness, trauma, domestic abuse, loss, bereavement, disability and illness.

Couples

Are you a couple that has lost there way in the relationship, do you need help reconnecting, communicating or just some support through difficult times.  I will work with you together and explore the issues you are experiencing.

Walking Talking Therapy or referred to as Green Therapy

I understand that not all types of therapy work with everyone, so I went on to learn alternative therapies, this also coincides with my passion for the great outdoors and discovering new places.

Not everyone feels comfortable in a counselling room.

Walking

So I offer a different approach to counselling, outside has the ability to heal, calm, motivate and uplift us.  Having gentle exercise outside in a natural environment with fresh air, nature and plants, can be healing.  It also has an added benefit to getting fit.

Research suggests that as well as the physical benefits it can also help with psychological health and mental wellbeing.  This could help relieve symptoms of depression, anxiety, tension, fatigue

Talking

Being a qualified counsellor I am able to listen and explore what’s going on for you and help you work through your emotional problems.

This less intense style of counselling can sometimes make painful events and emotions easier to talk about.

I offer planned walks in and around Lampeter, Llanybydder or Brechfa Forest.  Weekly sessions start from 1 to 3 hours and all in natural daylight.

Animal Assisted Interventions

Animals are non-judgemental and live in the here and now and don’t mind what you look like.  I work with my dog and this may include, stroking, brushing, playing or walking.

This type of therapy can help with stress, anxiety, social isolation, improve mood and self-worth.

Animal Bereavement

Losing an animal can be a difficult time, I will help you explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions this would help you get a better understanding of the different reactions you are experiencing.

I am available on weekdays, evenings and Saturdays.  I offer reduced rates for students, student counsellors and low income.

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.
