Sheila Daly MBACP
I truly believe that no matter who you are or where you are from, at some stage in your life you will experience difficulties and therapy can make all the difference. There are many issues that can feel overwhelming e.g. depression, anxiety, relationships to name but a few and I know it can feel quite scary taking that first step talking to someone you don't know. However, you will find that I am really easy to talk to, professional and have a wealth of knowledge and experience. My aim is to make a difference and have a positive impact on your well-being.
I am a genuine, caring and empathic person who can offer a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space for you to explore your issues and together we will be able to find the best way forward for you. I am an experienced qualified Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
My practice is situated in a discrete setting, affording a modern, bright, comfortable therapy room. It is easily accessible either by car or public transport and is actually within walking distance of Cardiff Bay and the City Centre. The feedback I have received from clients working in either of these areas is that they find it useful having their therapy session during their working day or at the end of their working day thereby missing the rush hour traffic.
