About me

My name is Han Piggott; I am a professionally qualified counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

There are many reasons why you might approach a counsellor, I appreciate the courage this involves in taking the first steps and the feelings this could evoke such as anxiety, apprehension and ambivalence.

You may be seeking to change aspects of your life, resolve an issue that has been causing you distress or explore your thoughts and feelings in more depth. Counselling can offer you the space and freedom to do this in a safe and confidential environment.

My aim is to develop a relationship of trust and empathy. I will encourage you to talk about your concerns and any difficult feelings, through this process you may uncover the underlying cause and identify specific ways of thinking. Counselling can be helpful in developing a deeper awareness of ourselves and our relationships with others, past and present. We can work together to understand the meaning behind painful emotions and unhelpful patterns of behaviour.

Alongside, my private practice, I am an NHS Counsellor working within the Employee Wellbeing Service. I have previously worked as an NHS Counsellor in Primary Care, also a Wellbeing Practitioner and a Sessional Counsellor for Cardiff University.

I work from R&R Consulting Centres for face to face counselling. I offer Walk and Talk Therapy, which is counselling outdoors in the Heath and Llanishen area. Sessions are also held remotely, using online video consultation or telephone.

Training, qualifications & experience

My qualification is accredited by the BACP and obtained at Cardiff and Vale College (Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling).

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

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.
