About me

Are you struggling with anxiety or depression on a daily basis? Are you stuck in life and don't know where to go from here? Are you finding it impossible to get over a traumatic event? If you need someone impartial to listen to you and help you work through your problems I can help.

I strongly believe that we are shaped by our experiences and interactions throughout our lives which in turn can influence our actions, thoughts, feelings and reactions later on. This can result in difficulties such as anxiety, depression, social phobias, panic attacks - the list is endless - and can cause problems in day to day life.

I offer a caring approach and can help you by presenting the problem in a new light. This in turn puts us in a position to free up the past, and to contemplate change for the better and challenge the negative systems which bind us.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

FEES

I offer short and long term counselling to individuals according to their circumstances and needs. Sessions are usually held weekly on a set day and time that we agree on. I will consider evenings or weekends depending on room availability.

Each session lasts for 50 minutes including the initial assessment session. The purpose of this first meeting is to make sure that we can work together, that I am the right counsellor for you and that I am offering the therapy that you need.

My rate is £35 a session (£25 for the initial meeting). Payment can either be made by cash or cheque at the beginning of each session.

Further information

I am a qualified Counsellor and Registered member of the BACP. I am currently working towards accreditation.

I have experience of working with clients who have been raped or sexually abused. I have also worked with women who have been in domestic abuse situations, and are living with the emotional and long term effects of their trauma. I have also helped clients who are experiencing anxiety or depression and those with childhood issues that are impacting on their ability to cope in adulthood

As a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I work within its Ethical Framework for Good Practice.

I began my training in Swansea, then progressed to South Wales University in Pontypridd. Initially, I trained as a Person-Centred counsellor, then further training enabled me to integrate the integrative approach to counselling.

Additional study has expanded my knowledge and experience to include working with trauma victims and to address suicidal and self-harm issues. Supplementary training includes qualifying as a Mental Health First Aider.
