Han Piggott, Dip.Couns, MBACP
My name is Han Piggott; I am a professionally qualified counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I provide counselling in Cardiff, on an open ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of empowering you to enhance your life and live it more fully.
I can offer a confidential and non-judgmental environment, where I hope we can build a collaborative and therapeutic relationship. This 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.
I have my own private practice, working from R&R Consulting Centres in the Heath area. I run this alongside working as a Wellbeing Practitioner and a Sessional Counsellor for Cardiff University. I also work as a Counsellor for the NHS working in Primary Care, based in GP practices all around the Cardiff area.
We can work together in a range of settings, I offer face to face in consulting rooms, via the telephone or through webcam (using a secure link you can access via your mobile phone, tablet, laptop or computer).
Please note at present I am only working remotely, offering video link and telephone consultations. Face to face working is under review and not yet resumed.

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.
