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 a Primary Care Counsellor within the NHS (based in GP practices). I am 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 via the platform Zoom and 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 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.

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.
