I am a freelance integrative counsellor : drawing on various theories to 'customise' my approach for each person. This could be a practical 'cognitive' approach, for anxiety or phobias for example...or a more 'Person-Centred' approach, enabling a client to access the answers they hold, to life's challenges.
I offer confidential one - one counselling for adults and young people.
We would meet first and discuss what's involved and an agreed way to 'move forward'...it's important for us to know we can work well together!
Some cases may only require a few sessions together..others may take longer...we would regularly review this as we go along.
I work in the centre of Haverfordwest and am available most week days and on Saturdays by request.
I provide a "safe" and private environment for each person to explore their thoughts, feelings and emotions.
My work is non-judgemental and each persons' privacy is respected at all times.
I charge £50 for each counselling session (approx 50 minutes), but I also offer concessions for people on lower wages or a benefit.
I ask for 48 hours' notice if a Session needs to be cancelled and I reserve the right to charge for a Session, if notice not received.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
