I'm a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist and I offer short or long-term counselling for individuals, via telephone, online, or face-to-face in Cardigan and Narberth. Unfortunately, at the moment, due to the Covid-19 situation, I am unable to offer face-to-face sessions.
Maybe you're looking for help because you're feeling stuck in work or a relationship, or you're experiencing loss or change, or maybe you find you're just not living your life as fully at you'd like. Talking can really help and I aim to provide a safe and confidential space for that to happen. I would work with you in a supportive, non-judgement way and together we would explore your personal and relationship issues, identify and understand things that may be blocking your progress, and I would support you through any changes you choose to make.
Adlerian counselling is a psychodynamic model that aims to increase self-awareness and understanding of the influence of the past on present behaviour, and uses encouragement to bring about positive change.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma in Adlerian Counselling and Psychotherapy and I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am also a member of the professional organisations: the Adlerian Society Institute of Individual Psychology and the Adlerian Society of Wales. I am trained in Rewind Technique by The International Association for Rewind Trauma Therapy.
I have a small private practice, and I work with Pathways to Change for Dyfed Drug and Alcohol Services. I am a bereavement volunteer and supervisor with Cruse Bereavement Care and I volunteered as a counsellor with Pembrokeshire Counselling Service for three years.
I keep my professional knowledge and practise up to date with regular Continuing Professional Development and I adhere to the BACP code of ethics.
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.
