There are many different reasons why people seek counselling. For the majority of people I see its simply because counselling offers a non-judgmental and supportive environment to work though life’s many challenges.
I graduated from Glamorgan University Family Institute with a BSc Honours Degree in Counselling and have been an Associate Counsellor for a voluntary organisation in the County of Mid Glamorgan for the past 11 years and I continue to the present day. I am experienced in counselling practice with both adults young people and children .
What is Counselling?
Counselling can and may take many different formats to bring to a person a better understanding of themselves and others.
It's about helping and supporting a person to find an understanding and maybe an answer to what works for them. Some people usually find counselling very liberating and an empowering experience; that is not to say that they do not feel nervous or daunted when first approaching a counsellor, they do, however, a counsellor offers a supportive and positive approach to personal development and this process and feeling afterwards are usually very positive and beneficial.
How I work
My aim is to work in a Person Centred way, that is, a non-directive way to provide a space where you can feel non-judged, supported and understood, deepening your awareness of your unique patterns of feeling, thinking and behaviour. This process of gaining insight and greater self-compassion offers the potential for you to make informed choices and experience your personal and professional life as more fulfilling. I am an empathic and insightful counsellor providing down-to-earth therapy to help you make the changes you want. Each session will last 50 minutes and what you wish to discuss is entirely up to you. I will help you to make your own decisions and to take more control over your life.
Where I work
I work from a Private Health Clinic situated in the heart of Talbot Green, near Llantrisant, as part of a Multi Disciplinary Team, who offer a wide range of health care services to suit everyone.
So if you are facing a crisis or a period of change in your life, then may be counselling could help you.
