Rowena Wingfield Davies
You may have situations in your life that are troubling you right now. Perhaps a sudden change in your life, or a loss, has thrown everything you know awry, or perhaps the everyday demands of an alienating society are too much for you or you are finding relationships difficult. On the other hand, the rewards from an otherwise apparently successful life may escape you as you remain unfulfilled or lack joy.
How Counselling can help
I believe that you already possess your own resolutions and capacity for meaning, and I will trust that you are able to discover these until you can do that for yourself. Together we can learn to accept, to treasure, the person that you are right now and enable your own process of unfoldment and of awareness of how you both mould and are moulded by the world you inhabit. It is in this that you find you have choice.
What to expect in your first session
I acknowledge the courage it takes to make a first appointment with a therapist. The relationship we create between us is vital and the first session will help us decide if I am the right therapist for you; or you may need a few days to decide. I am kind, accepting and gentle, but I will also not avoid revealing what may be difficult for you to hear if I think it will help you and you are ready to receive it.
Training, qualifications & experience
My background is in the corporate world where I worked for many years. It was my experience as a Buddhist, including my growing awareness of the interconnectedness and interdependence that exists between us and with the wider world, that led me to train at the Psychosynthesis Trust as a counsellor. BSc (Hons). PG Dip. in Psychosynthesis Counselling. Registered member MBACP.
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 Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
