About me

My name is Diana and I have been counselling in Wrexham for over 10 years.

Many
people seek counselling because of difficulties they are having with life at particular times or because a long-standing problem has become unmanageable. Sometimes there are obvious things to focus on; at other times people just feel very confused and need help to try and unravel their thoughts and feelings.

If you are reading this then I guess you are thinking about talking to someone.  Maybe wondering how to decide what to do next.

If you want to call me we can talk about what it would be like to come for counselling. Everyone is different. I see some clients every week, others monthly or even less often. Usually I will suggest that we have a "one-off" session and you can then decide whether it feels like it might be useful.  If you do want to go ahead we will decide together what will work best for you - how often to meet, how long for, what we will talk about etc. 

There is no charge for the initial phone call so if you think it might be useful to have someone outside your friends/family circle to confide in I would be really happy to hear from you. It is fine to leave a confidential message on the phone or email. Let me know if there is a particular time it would be best to call you back.

Looking forward to working with you!

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.

Wheelchair user access

During this Coronavirus outbreak I can offer sessions via Zoom or Skype, FaceTime or WhatsApp. Stay safe.

Availability

Weekdays including Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday evening.

I am a diploma qualified supervisor working in NE Wales and Chester Areas.  I offer counselling supervision and supervision of practitioners in the helping professions.  I am a practising counsellor, specialising in relationship work and I am also involved in related projects with young people, group work and people who have been affected by domestic abuse.
