If you are having unwelcome thoughts, confusion or feelings of a lack of connection to yourself , others and life, counselling can be an opportunity to be heard, without judgement in a safe, confidential space. I can be beside you and support you whilst you try to work out and understand what has happened and or what is happening that feels “not right”.
Things may feel desperate or impossible, and counselling is one way for you to start to notice and explore all the feelings and lack of feelings you are experiencing.
This will happen at your pace, giving space for your discomfort, allowing space for your experiences.
I acknowledge the difficulties of coping in a system not designed to care, whether you are a parent, single person, or in a relationship somehow struggling with life. Any way of connecting with yourself through self-care, being in nature, journaling, reaching out to start to being more in control of your own life, amongst others, is what I can support you to uncover.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a BA in Counselling and have worked with adopting Parents facing challenges around their adopted children. I have worked within bereavement support services and Carmarthenshire Counselling Services offering short term counselling. I have a particular interest in how we can connect and what gets in the way, also grief, how our early attachment affects us, and intersectionality and ending oppression work.
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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
