Huw MacRae Jones PhD PGDip Psychotherapy
I am a fully qualified psychotherapist and member of the BACP, with a private practice in Carmarthen. I practice person-centred and emotion-focused therapy and have experience working in many different areas including anxiety, depression, trauma and loss.
Making the decision to work with a counsellor or psychotherapist can be daunting and the variety of different approaches can be confusing. I offer a free initial consultation where we can talk about your expectations and try to answer any questions you may have.
During our sessions you will have the opportunity to be listened to in a safe and non-judgmental way, within a confidential and professional working relationship. You will have the opportunity to reflect on aspects of your life you find puzzling or distressing. The simple act of putting things into words can lead to a new understanding of ourselves; this in turn can disrupt and change what are often longstanding beliefs about ourselves and our relationship to others.
