Co-founder & Counsellor 

Hi my name is Rhys, and I am here for you.I provide a laid back, pressure free, yet proactive approach to counselling. I will ensure that you feel relaxed and comfortable to discuss as much as you want to. I will work at your pace as I understand some issues are complex and may take longer to process and I want you to know I will not shy away from the issues at hand and will be by your side throughout the process.


I have a particular interest in helping clients deal with trauma/traumatic experiences. This is where I personally believe that I can help my clients the most. I work in a pluralistic way that is client led.  This means that my approach will help you the client by using a range of techniques to ensure that they are getting the most effective therapy during the time we spend together.
