About me

I am a fully trained Relate Relationship Counsellor. I am a skilled and compassionate listener. I offer confidential, respectful, safe and non-judgemental space for clients to come and explore their problems – alone or with a partner.

I offer a free 10 minute telephone, face to face or Skype assessment – no obligation

Please see my website:  www.elaineowen.cymru

My counselling approaches are primarily psychodynamic which helps to increase self awareness and your understanding of how the past has influenced your present thoughts and behaviours.  I also use the systemic theory which focuses not only on you as an individual, but also as a person in relationships, dealing with interaction patterns and dynamics.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a degree in Psychology and a Post Graduate Diploma in counselling.

I am a trained Relationship counsellor and have worked for Relate for many years.

Member organisations


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.

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Key details

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.
