My name is Mason Neely. I am a MBACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist in Cardiff who works with individuals and couples with all kinds of concerns, ranging from depression and anxiety to issues of identity, trauma and relationship difficulty.
My approach is best described as 'relational integrative', meaning that it combines aspects from a wide variety of counselling perspectives, including Psychodynamic, Interpersonal, Person Centred and Existential. Put simply, these concepts afford the flexibility to focus on who you are, who you have been and the changes you desire for your life and your relationships.
I'm aware from my own experiences as a client how difficult it can be to take the first step into counselling. While I hope to bring a level of experience and theoretical understanding to my work, I am not the expert of your life - you are. Sometimes achieving a sense of balance in our everyday lives is difficult because of past experiences. My efforts are simply to help create a friendly, creative and confidential space where you can begin to feel at ease with your past, clear about your present and in control of your future. Your feelings are real, your needs are important and the change you desire is possible.
No matter how large the problem might seem or how stuck you might feel, I encourage you to give me a call and begin to see for yourself if we might work well together.
