About me

Through Darkness to Light , We Journey Together

My aim is to listen to you and to give you space to explore your thoughts. I believe that everyone has a story and there is something learnt from every experience.

About me.

I am a BACP registered counsellor and work within the BACP Ethical Framework.

I have regular supervision and I am insured by Holistic Gold insurance. My counselling style is based on three approaches (Person Centered, Integrative and Humanistic). 

Work experience.

I have worked within the mental health sector since 2015 as a carer and support worker. 

Completed my student placement and volunteered as a counsellor for the Jac Lewis Foundation for three years. I worked with various mental health issues , bereavement , self- esteem and so forth. 

I am currently working as a counsellor for certain online platforms and also work as an active monitoring practitioner for Neath Port Talbot Mind, as well as having my own private practice (KL'S Therapy).

Lastly to add to my work I will be working voluntarily as a bereavement support for Marie Curie. 

Here is a description of my practice.

I work both online and in person, my online work is offered through telephone, Whatsapp, google meet or other online platforms. I work in person at Llandybie Memorial Hall, which does have accessible rooms and parking outside of the building. In both online and in person I provide a confidential space for clients who are in both long or short term therapy. 

Here is a more in depth description of my counselling styles.

Humanistic Approach- This approach brings together different elements of specific therapies. This is because an integrative counsellor believes there is not just one approach that can help a client.

Person Centered Approach- This is directed by you, meaning that it will be you that does most of the talking. This is because I will not actively direct the talking , within sessions , or judge nor interpret what you say. However I might repeat what you say to fully understand your thoughts and feelings. 

Integrative approach- This draws on different techniques from different styles of therapy. This meaning that I will work with you and tailor my work to meet your needs, as I believe that you are the expert on yourself. I also work within a non-judgmental way and offer space for you to explore your thoughts.

Member organisations

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.
