About me

I do face to face counselling in a hired counselling room in Cardigan on Saturdays between 9am and 1pm.

I do home visits within a 20 mile radius of Cardigan at a mutually agreeable time.

I do online counselling using Zoom at a mutually agreeable time.

I also do telephone counselling at a mutually agreeable time.

All these types of sessions last 50 minutes and cost £50 payable by cash, paypal or bank transfer within 7 days.

Having worked on the coalface as an alcohol, drug and homelessness worker becoming a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist was a natural progression drawing upon a rich life experience. My peers tell me that one of my best skills is the early development of the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client. This quickly allows you a safe place to work on whatever you wish to bring and so I look forward to meeting you with my focused, attentive style coupled with lots of curiosity, encouragement and warmth.

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.
