About me

Hello, I'm Bernadette, and I provide on-line and face to face counselling for individuals and couples. I am based in Cardiff and West Dorset and offer counselling within a relaxed therapy room or location of your choice. 

I am an experienced Person- Centred Counsellor, meaning that I provide an environment that helps you explore issues and problems, feelings, beliefs and behaviours in a way that enables you to move towards fulfilling your potential. 

Finding the right counsellor can be daunting. I offer a warm welcome and a safe and supportive environment. I will not judge, regardless of what you bring to the session, and this will help build a trustworthy relationship where you are able to disclose what is troubling you. Your counselling journey can help you recognise the bigger picture, make connections and support you towards the life you want to live. This journey is known as 'self- actualisation', which I believe is achievable for everyone. 

I provide counselling to individuals, and my ambition is to see people grow and develop. I have met and supported many incredible clients experiencing anxiety, depression, low mood, loss & grief, OCD, anger, stress and traumatic life events. 

Additionally, I provide couples and relationship counselling using a blend of Person- Centred & Solution Focused Therapies and Neuro- Linguistic- Programming (coaching). I provide a toolkit of resources which support couples to review underlying issues and tensions, reduce conflict, improve communication and re-establish connection. Addressed properly, entrenched problems can be overcome, and a quality relationship rebuilt. 

If you would like to find out further information, I am always happy to chat beforehand to explore if counselling is right for you. 

I ascribe to the ethical value of providing clients with effective and confidential therapy, and work in accordance with the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists code of ethics.

Member organisations


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.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit , or contact this professional directly

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

I offer counselling by phone, online or face to face at locations of your choice by prior arrangement. Please get in touch for a confidential chat to explore options.
