Central to psychology and psychotherapy since the turn of the last century, the ideas and methods of Dr Alfred Adler (1870-1937) appear in the theory and practice of nearly all modern-day psychologies and counselling approaches.
The Adlerian Society of Wales is one of many throughout the world dedicated to furthering Adler's ideas and teachings, which it achieves through training and professional development activities for counsellors, personal development courses for non-professionals and community involvement, as well as offering counselling and psychotherapy based on Adlerian principles.
Operating from its spacious, Victorian, two-storey building in the centre of Narberth, Pembrokeshire, the Society currently has 60 members, including student counsellors, professional counsellors and members of the general public interested in counselling and their own ongoing personal development.
A registered charity, which also operates another centre in Cardigan, the Adlerian Society of Wales provides both a low- and no-cost service for those who qualify.
It has both male and female counsellors of all ages and backgrounds, trained to a high standard over four years, and subject to the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) ethical framework.
Taking referrals from local doctors, health and social services, fees range from 'donation only' to around £40 per session, depending on the individual counsellor.
The Adlerian Society of Wales offers both short and long-term counselling – you may need only a few sessions to feel the benefit of a one-to-one, confidential, professional relationship where your needs and issues come first.
In 2011, the Adlerian Society of Wales hosted a training course in family counselling, run by Anthea Millar.
This is a particular kind of intervention in which a trained professional runs a short series of sessions with a family to help them resolve tensions and difficulties.
