About me and my therapy practice
Hello! I'm Carys. I work with adults of all genders across the UK on a broad range of issues, although I have a special focus on working with anxiety, self-esteem and self-worth.
I offer a warm, compassionate and non-judgemental approach to therapy, based on the belief that every person is unique and has the potential for growth and change. I work collaboratively with you to develop a deeper understanding of yourself and your experiences. My aim is to offer you a safe and supportive space to explore your thoughts, feelings and actions without judgement, to find a new way forward.
I offer integrative therapy, a combined approach that brings together different counselling psychotherapy theories. For me, this means I have a grounded therapy style in humanistic therapy which is accompanied by a willingness to carefully incorporate techniques from other therapeutic approaches.
My Masters's degree in Psychotherapeutic Counselling from Staffordshire University included a research focus on sexual violence survivors' emotional expression in therapy. Prior to becoming a counsellor, I worked as a specialist sexual health outreach worker, working with youth, LGBT+ and sex work communities. Here, I developed my core values of inclusivity, empathy and autonomy that guide my work today.
I currently offer sessions online, via Doxy.me or Google Meets.
My first session
I offer a free 15-20 minute introductory phone/video call. This gives us both an opportunity to get a sense of whether we may be a good fit, for me to share a little information about how I work, and for you to share as much (or as little!) information as you would like to about what has brought you to counselling.
