Now offering walk and talk therapy.
Counselling can be to help you work through a specific issue or it can be that you may simply feel the need to talk to someone who will listen.
Counselling can provide you with an opportunity to gain insight into your present situation, feelings and behaviour. It can help in exploring strategies for working through the problems they are experiencing. Also, counselling can help with coping techniques for managing everyday life.
The process allows you to talk about your feelings or concerns within a empathic, confidential and supportive environment.
This is the first step of taking control and reaching out for the support you need.
I work for a charity, Rape and Sexual Support Centre North Wales (RASASC NW). RASASC offers counselling to survivors of sexual violence, including child sexual abuse, rape as an adult, sexual assault, sexual harassment at work and extreme abuse. Also counselling their family, friends and partners too.
Previously I volunteered as a counsellor for Prescribed Medication Support Service (PMSS) which is part of the NHS. PMSS offer counselling to those on medication and who may be looking to reduce or come off their prescriptions.
I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and work within their Ethical Framework. My qualifications were achieved with Coleg Harlech, based in North Wales.
Please call for an informal chat to see how I can work with you.

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
Accredited Register Scheme
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.
