Litsa Davies - Therapist, BAhon's Counselling, Dip Couns, MBACP Accred
As a qualified therapist with over 14 years experience I offer a professional and authentic counselling relationship in which you will experience non-judgement, empathy and care. I work with adults, adolescents and children. My 'way of being' will give you a safe, comfortable and confidential space to address your struggles and discover the emotional balance and wellbeing you are longing for.
As a therapist I have worked with people of all ages from many different cultural and religious backgrounds, addressing issues such as:
* Relationship Issues
* Low Self-esteem/confidence
* Feeling Sad
* Post Traumatic Stress disorder
* Narcissistic Abuse
* Suicidal Ideation
* Eating Disorders
* ASD (social skills)
The Person Centred model of counselling is the foundation of all my work. This means that the therapeutic relationship is built on empathy, congruence and non-judgement; all core conditions of the counselling I provide. I also incorporate elements of other therapeutic models such as CBT, Psychodynamic and Solution Focussed therapy. I offer short and long term counselling depending on your personal situation and needs. I work flexibly, offering sessions face to face, through Skype or Face-time & also telephone counselling.
Whatever brings you to counselling, whether it be historical life experiences or the demands and stresses of everyday life, you will be welcomed with kindness and compassion.

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.
