About us

Mind Monmouthshire is a trusted independent specialist mental health charity which was formed over 40 years. We have grown into an organisation which provides a point of contact, information, and a wide range of services for people experiencing poor mental health across the whole county of Monmouthshire. Mind Monmouthshire endeavour to put the needs of the people who use our services at the heart of everything we do.

We have been providing a high quality, professional and confidential counselling service to people in Monmouthshire since 2016. We offer a wide range of counselling approaches which we change and adapt to suit a person’s individual needs to adults over the age of 18. These approaches are evidence-based models such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Integrative and Person-Centred Counselling.

Nick Price (Lead Counsellor) has led our counselling service since its start in 2016 and is a qualified CBT Psychotherapist and fully accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. Nick is currently studying EMDR to become a trauma specialist.

Counselling can be a scary process; our counsellors are skilled at helping you relax so you can talk about the problems you are having at the moment. We will offer you a safe, warm and non-judgemental space to explore the problems you are facing and ways to help you move forward away from these problems.

We have found some of the most common questions people ask us are:

Why am I feeling like this?         What is wrong with me?   How can I change?

How can I get better?               Can you help me?

Are these some of the questions on your mind?

Training, qualifications & experience

Mind Monmouthshire has a small team of both qualified Psychotherapists and Counsellors, as well as students studying in College and University. The students in our team are currently studying at very high academic levels to become Psychotherapists and Counsellors in the near future.

Within our team we can offer you a wide range of different counselling styles to help you get back on track as soon as possible and away from any emotional distress you have been feeling.

Member organisations *

Registered / Accredited

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.

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.

We have verified that at least one professional at this organisation is registered with the relevant professional body.

Client Testimonials:

"During my sessions with Nick at Mind Monmouthshire, I've really started to feel more like myself. I always thought CBT wasn't for me, but the way Nick adapted the sessions really clicked with me and I've learned lots of great techniques to help me cope with da-to-day life. Slowly but surely I've started to feel the changes and have noticed I'm much more positive and happy in general. I still have my down days, but I feel like I'm able to cope much better now"

"I want to thank Nick and the work he did with my husband. He saved my husband's life because he wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for the work Nick did with him. I will always be grateful to him"

"You helped me feel so comfortable working with you from the very first session. I've always had a problem working with men in the past but you are so different. Thank you"

"working with you has been one of the most amazing things I've ever done. For the first time in my life I've got a positive outlook and life and I'm looking forward to the future"

“You have given me so much strength to carry on with my life. I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for you”

“Thank you for everything you’ve done for me, I appreciate it. You’ve changed the way I think about my life and what goes on in it”

“You’ve come highly recommended. I can see we other people have liked working with you”

“The biggest thing I’ve liked about working with you is that you listen to what I have to say without judging me”

“I’ve worked with other counsellors in the past, but they’re nowhere near as good as you”

“You describe things in a way that I understand and make so much sense to me. Other counsellors I’ve worked with haven’t done that for me”
