Hi, my name is Linda, I was born and raised in Llanelli. I brought up my children, and then after many painful ups and downs of life, went to College to train as a Counsellor. I believe that going through traumatic situations myself, has given me a heart to help other people face, and deal with their problems. During the day I work within counselling organisations, which has provided me with years of experience and training.
I have been a qualified counsellor for over 12 years, with vast experience in General Counselling. I have reached Senior Accredited qualifications and I am a member of BACP/UKCP.
My work involves issues such as Abuse(sexual, emotional and physical) Anxiety, Depression, Stress,
Relationship issues, Loss and Bereavement, Family, Work and Faith issues.
If you need a safe place to talk, or need to work through a situation with someone who will not judge, but will offer support and empathy, then counselling might be for you.
Training, qualifications & experience
Trained to Senior Accredited BACP level. I have worked as a General Counsellor for 12 years, working with Adults, and also, in the last 4 years, worked with school age children.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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
