Cheryl Morgan PG Dip Integratvie Counselling, MBACP
Life presents us with all sorts of challenges, issues and crisis. Sometimes in these difficult situations we feel overwhelmed and our strategies for coping do not work. Counselling in these situations can help. Counselling can offer a safe secure space to work through these challenges helping you to find answers from within yourself, enabling you to feel able to cope again.
My name is Cheryl and I am a graduate of Newport University holding a Post Graduate Diploma (level 7) in Integrative Counselling. As an integrative counsellor, with a firm base in a humanistic approach, I provide a confidential, non judgemental safe space where a therapeutic relationship can be initiated. I believe it is the relationship that is most important, where collaboratively we can work together incorporating aspects of CBT and psychodynamic techniques where necessary and useful for each individual.
Counselling is an opportunity to explore any difficult situations you are experiencing, working together to find positive meaning in your life.
Over the last 9 years I have studied Counselling Skills & Theories, Advanced Counselling at Bridgend College leading to Post Graduate Integrative Counselling at Newport. In this time I have been a volunteer at Porthcawl Counselling Service. I also provide Counselling for children aged 11-18 and adults experiencing domestic abuse, sexual abuse, self harm, relationship problems, self esteem, depression, anxiety, bereavement, PTSD/trauma, eating disorders, sexual orientation, stress and health issues. In particular I have several years experience counselling young people and their families with issues around substance misuse.
I am a professional member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and work within their ethical framework for good practice and undertake continuous development to expand my skills. I also attend regular supervision sessions to help develop my practice and ensure I am working ethically with clients.
Training, qualifications & experience
Prior to training as a Counsellor I worked as a support officer for a housing association dealing directly on a one to one basis with domestic abuse, substance misuse, homelessness, debt, anti social behaviour and tenancies. This gave me an insight into the every day pressures and conflicts experienced by ordinary people. I passionately believe in treating everybody with dignity and respect, seeking not to judge but to help and provide a valued service for those needing support.
I am ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Trained) trained.
