One-To-One Counselling Sessions

I am available for one to one counselling sessions from my home near Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire.

I hold a safe, confidential space and create a strong, caring connection in which you are invited to unload what’s worrying you and explore the issues you are experiencing

We can look at the ways that they are affecting your life - these may be showing themselves in the following ways:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • sleeplessness
  • obsessions and compulsions
  • self-harm
  • despair
  • lack of motivation and direction
  • eating disorders
  • shame
  • addictions
  • relationship and sexual problems
  • I also am drawn towards matters of the soul, and encourage anyone finding themselves in a place of spiritual/ soul query or crisis to consider me as a respectful companion on their journey.

    Training

    With my main trainings in integrative counselling and psychotherapeutic life coaching, I can offer support for making peace with issues from the past so that you create a life for yourself in which you feel more at home.

    I am influenced and informed by several different models: person-centred counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Fusion life coaching and Mindfulness.

    I work with mindfulness-in-nature techniques to help people access a resource that is abundant and free, to sustain long-lasting wellbeing from the natural world around them.

    I have been working as a counsellor for 14 years, firstly as a student counsellor at Lampeter University and then, for the last few years, with Carmarthenshire Counselling Service offering brief intervention counselling (six sessions) for people referred by their GP.

    I am an accredited member of British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and work within their ethical framework.

    If you have any questions then please do contact me and I’ll do my best to answer them.

    How to arrange a session

    Please call or email ..l will get back to you as soon as possible – please do say if it’s not ok for me to leave a message on your phone.

    The initial consultation is free so that we can meet and see if you feel comfortable.

    Other things

    I work from a beautiful woodstove-heated yurt in the woods next to my home. It’s a peaceful and nourishing place . . . and needs you to be fairly mobile to reach it and in wellies after wet weather.

    Let me know if you are concerned this will be a problem. There are other potential venues for a small extra cost available if you cannot reach the yurt.

    If you have decided to work with me then you will need to agree to pay me if you forget to turn up for a session or have to cancel within 24 hours of a booked session.

    Session fees
    • I charge £40/hour . . . I offer lower rates for those on lower incomes when I can so please ask. I also welcome up to £60 an hour from those who are comfortably financed in order to support those who are on lower incomes.
    • I ask for 24 hours' notice for cancellations. You will need to pay for your session if you don't cancel in time or forget to come. I will give you as much notice as I can if I occasionally need to cancel due to ill health etc.
    • I prefer cash and can give receipts. Any non-cash payments eg Paypal/cheques /bank transfer need to be made in advance of the session.
    • Paying for a block of 6 sessions in advance reduces the session cost to £35/hour.
