Han Piggott, Dip.Couns, MBACP
I am a professionally qualified counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I offer both short and long term one to one counselling and psychotherapy.
My approach is integrative, drawing mainly on humanistic and existential theories, motivational interviewing and brief solution focused therapy. Through the use of different therapies, this allows me to adapt a wide range of skills to meet the needs of each unique individual.
I have experience within a range of settings from an Employee Counselling Service to working with young people in Higher Education. I have particular expertise in counselling people affected by alcohol and drug use and adults who have experienced sexual abuse. Alongside my private practice, I work as a Wellbeing and Counselling Sessional Practitioner for Cardiff University. I have also worked as a Counsellor for the NHS, working in Primary Care within GP practices all around the Cardiff area.
I offer a warm, confidential, empathetic and non-judgemental environment. This enables us to build a collaborative and therapeutic relationship, which I feel is the foundation of working effectively together. I believe that you are the expert in your own life, that you should have the control and the freedom to make your own choices. I also recognise the potential for you to find your own meaning and path in life. My role is to help you explore your concerns, with a hope that you can gain greater clarity, insight and perspective in order to find a way forward.
