I am a qualified person-centred counsellor and psychotherapist (Dip. HE in Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy), and a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and NCPS (National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society). I have enhanced DBS certification but choose to only work with adults aged 18 to 80.

Ed Hewitt-Symonds MBACP

My private practice is based in Wrexham, working from home. As well as seeing private clients from Wrexham, NE Wales and Chester I have also worked on a voluntary basis as a counsellor with Ponthafren Association in Welshpool, seeing a range of adult clients, and until recently as Programme Leader and Senior Lecturer in Counselling at Wrexham Glyndwr University.

I see clients regardless of sexual, religious or cultural orientation. I have worked successfully with clients experiencing some of the following issues :-

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Low mood
  • Low self-esteem
  • Loneliness and isolation
  • Stress
  • Trauma/PTSD
  • Relationship problems
  • Sexual, physical and emotional abuse

Also, having a background working in the commercial world for over 30 years, both as an employee and as a business owner, I have worked with business owners and employees, and perhaps able to empathise with the challenges facing both. Mental health issues can affect all of us at any time in our lives, but for many people in business, whether an employer or employee these can interfere in their working lives with potentially massive effects.

I have also worked with clients facing retirement and redundancy, both business owners and employees for whom stress has got in the way of running the business, or even turning up for work, and business executives for whom other life events, such as relationship issues and bereavement issues have got in the way of their working lives.
