About me

How Counselling Can Help
You may have reached a point where you find that dealing with certain difficulties or areas of your life feels too much to tackle on your own and that talking with a counsellor would be useful.
Or it may be that you are experiencing a more generalised sense of dissatisfaction with your life, or feel stuck, and that talking with a professional could provide the clarity you need to work out what changes you wish to make and how to go about this.

How I Work
I provide a warm, non-judgemental and safe environment where we can work together. My approach is person-centred which means that my aim is not to direct you but to work with you on the difficulties you feel are the most pressing. I will work with you to help you understand yourself better, draw on your strengths and find your own solutions.
With relational difficulties I also draw on my experience as a restorative practitioner, the underlying theme of which is to help people develop the skills to build, maintain and repair relationships, whether this is with yourself or others. 

My Background
I have a diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and am a registered member of The British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, (BACP). This means that I abide by its code of ethics and commit to regular continuing professional development.
As well as working privately, I have worked as an associate counsellor with Cardiff University Staff Counselling Service and as a volunteer counsellor with victims of domestic abuse in The Vale of Glamorgan.
Before training as a counsellor I worked as a teacher in secondary education and then as a restorative practitioner, managing relational issues and conflicts in secondary schools and prisons. As such, I understand many of the difficulties young people face, the stresses that staff may experience, dealing with organisational change and the challenges faced when striving to achieve a healthy work-life balance.

Fees

I provide one-to-one counselling, lasting one hour and I charge £35 per session.
A reduced rate for students and those on a low income is negotiable.
I offer an initial consultation hour for £25 in which you can decide whether you feel counselling may be useful and whether you want to proceed.
The number of sessions is entirely up to you.
Some people have specific issues that may only require a very few sessions. Others find that they have less specific goals, or more deep-seated issues, and that a longer period of counselling is useful.
The number of sessions doesn't have to be decided at the outset and may become more apparent as counselling proceeds. Every person is unique and the pace at which they work varies.
