About me

Hi there, I'm Nia. I am a qualified bilingual counsellor offering therapy in welsh and english. My counselling training began in 2013, since then I have worked with children, young people and adults experiencing a range of emotional issues, with a focus on loss and attachment.

I offer a safe, confidential, non-judgemental, friendly and supportive environment. Using an Integrative approach means I have the ability to offer a variety of theories such as Person-Centred, Solution-Focused and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

I will help you to develop your skills to become more self aware and resilient which will enhance your self-esteem, confidence and ability to cope with challenging behaviours, issues and situations.

Member organisations

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.
