Huw Davies Therapy and Supervision

How I can help

'Counselling gives us the opportunity to talk to someone warm, caring and non-judgemental'.

Counselling gives us the opportunity to talk to someone warm, caring and non-judgemental. Within this therapeutic relationship we can explore our conflicts and distressing emotions calmly and securely. I can offer you an uninterrupted and confidential space within which we can explore any of the issues you bring.

Each 50 minute session is tailored to your needs, I recognise that you are the expert in your life. Counselling is a partnership where we both agree how we will progress. As a client nothing is forced on you, we will discuss and agree what we will do together.

I work in an integrative way. This integration is a process of recognising and valuing the knowledge, skills and insight from many of the main models of counselling and psychotherapy and using them within an overall integrative framework in a way that will be the most beneficial for our work together. The way we work may include, as an example, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Transactional Analysis (TA), Mindfulness or Person Centred Approach (PCA), whatever we use is discussed and agreed between us. This work can help you explore, make sense of and come to terms with the difficulties you may be facing, either in your present or from your past. Our work together may focus on specific problems or it may help you uncover underlying issues that are blocking and preventing you from living life as you would like to, or that may be preventing you from moving on emotionally.

Your confidentiality is assured as I am a member of and work within the BACP code of ethics. To discover more about this, you may use this link.

As a BACP member I also attend regular monthly personal supervision sessions in order to ensure safe, effective and professional practice.

The following are some examples of the issues that clients have brought to me in the past. The list is by no means exhaustive and is purely to give you an idea of the areas that can be covered in counselling and psychotherapy, you can of course bring any issue or problems that are affecting you.

  • Abuse

  • Addiction

  • Anxiety

  • Bereavement and loss

  • Bullying

  • Depression

  • Emotional distress

  • Family breakdown

  • Relationships

  • Self esteem

  • Self harm

  • Trauma

  • Work related issues

I am mindful as a practitioner that the BACP ethical guidelines state,

'Practitioners should give careful consideration to the limitations of their training and experience

and work within these limits, taking advantage of available professional support. If work with clients

requires the provision of additional services operating in parallel with counselling or psychotherapy,

the availability of such services ought to be taken into account, as their absence may constitute a

significant limitation.'

This means that in order to keep us both safe, I will not work beyond the levels of my knowledge or experience.
