Welcome to the Adlerian Society of Wales

We achieve this 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.

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. The Society is housed in a spacious Victorian 2 storey building in the centre of Narberth, Pembrokeshire, and is a registered charity No 1104457. We also operate another site in Cardigan, offering a range of counselling services, and training.


The Ansbacher Room is our main training and conference area, seating 25 in comfort and providing a calm, airy space.

Narberth is a small town in the geographical centre of Pembrokeshire, in an area of outstanding natural beauty, on the borders of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, an area that regularly receives recognition as one of the world’s most beautiful coastlines. It has good transport links to Carmarthen and Swansea in the east, and is conveniently located for Western Pembrokeshire, as well.

Our premises, Anderson House, are named after Helen Anderson, an influential Adlerian therapist and teacher, and are purpose-built to our needs, enabling us to offer counselling, training, and act as a focal point for Adlerians in Wales.


Our Cardigan centre is based in Manchester House, on Bridge Street in Cardigan. For more details, visit our Cardigan subsite.


As a registered charity, we are run by a committee. The Society’s committee is formed of volunteers from among the counselling profession, and students from our courses: our Chairman is Martyn Williams, who joined us from an educational background.

We hope you will find this website interesting and informative, and would be delighted to help if you wish to contact us with enquiries, requests for information, or comments.
