About me

Hi, I’m Cerian and I'm trained in Adlerian Counselling and Psychotherapy. I can work with clients from anywhere in the UK online or over the telephone. I also offer face-to-face sessions at a centre near Narberth, Pembrokeshire.

I have a degree in Psychology; I’ve always been interested in the human mind and our behaviours. Throughout my career I've worked in roles where caring for others and understanding the needs of others was the core focus. 

I am a compassionate therapist who works alongside my clients at their own pace; providing you with support, encouragement and techniques in a confidential safe space to guide you on your therapeutic journey.

Psychoeducation is appropriately incorporated into sessions (i.e. explanations of ideas, handouts, reading links/videos), which aims to give clients more understanding of topics discussed (e.g. anxiety), which in turn develops client insight, awareness and therefore movement within. 


* I am available Monday through to Thursday for morning and afternoon appointments. 

* Please get in touch via Email, Text or click the 'Book Intro Call' button on my profile, to arrange your initial free consultation call and discuss suitable appointment times.

* I offer a free 15 minute consultation call to discuss suitability, explore expectations of therapy and presenting issues, whilst also obtaining some basic details. 

Practice Description:

Adlerian Counselling and Psychotherapy is an approach where the therapist works with their client to identify certain obstacles and creates effective strategies for working towards their goals.  We believe that by gaining insight into challenges, people can overcome feelings of inferiority. As the client takes steps towards new thoughts and behaviours, the counsellor’s role remains one of support and encouragement, both of which are crucial in effective Adlerian Counselling. Exploring Early Memories, Dreams, Family background/childhood, and various other specialised techniques, are valuable accompaniments to understanding a client’s life-style and private-logic. Gaining valuable awareness of why we are who we are and how this affects our thoughts and behaviours, is crucially important to understanding and accepting our true selves.

Insight + Action = Change 

Our first session:

Your first session will be a continuation of our initial consultation call/assessment. It’s an opportunity to gather more information in order to build a picture of your situation, but also for us to discuss your expectations and goals for therapy, answer any questions you may have and for you to gauge how you feel about collaboratively working together on your therapeutic journey.

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.

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.
