Welcome to Cardiff Skeptics!
Skeptics in the Pub is an informal, relaxed lecture series based around critical thinking. It was founded in London by Dr Scott Campbell in 1999, as way for rationalists to get together and hear about the bizarre and extraordinary claims and a way of looking at them scientifically.
It's now spread all over England and Scotland, and is growing worldwide. Cardiff Skeptics was founded by Dean Burnett and Alice Sheppard in September 2010, and was the first Skeptics in the Pub in Wales.
In February 2012, the running of Cardiff Skeptics was assumed by John Stabler, with help from Trevor J Williams and Rhys Morgan.
We meet on the third Monday of every month. We have a guest speaker, questions, and a relaxing evening with food, drink and socialising!
Please follow us on Twitter, and join our Facebook page - especially if you are thinking of setting up a Skeptics elsewhere in Wales.
We have our own Skeptics in the Pub talks - Dean's is here and Alice's here if you'd like to invite either of us to speake at yours!
If you'd like to know more, or would be interested in being a speaker, please fill out the contact form or e-mail us at email@example.com.

What's the talk about?
Counselling and psychotherapy are almost completely unregulated in the UK. This lack of regulation has led to shocking cases of abuse, where unscrupulous therapists have been able to exploit vulnerable people and keep practicing.
Phil Dore is a mental health nurse and author of the Not So Big Society blog at http://notsobigsociety.wordpress.com which whistle-blows abuse in the psychotherapy industry.
