I'm a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist and I offer brief or long-term counselling and psychotherapy for individuals either online, via Zoom, or face-to-face in Cardigan and Narberth. Maybe you're experiencing loss or change, or you're feeling stuck in unwanted patterns of behaviour and you find you're not living as fully at you'd like. I provide a safe and confidential space for you to explore your personal and relational issues in a supportive, non-judgemental space, and to help you gain awareness and perspective, to identify things that may be blocking your progress and to support you through change.
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 have a small private practice, and I work with Pathways to Change for Dyfed Drug and Alcohol Services. I am a bereavement volunteer with Cruse Bereavement Care and a counsellor with Pembrokeshire Counselling Service. I have also recently qualified as a supervisor for Cruse Bereavement Care.
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.
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.
