About me

PSYCHOTHERAPY & COUNSELLING FOR INDIVIDUALS & COUPLES

I qualified in 2005 as an Integrative and Existential Psychotherapist & Counsellor specialising in working with emotional difficulty, anxiety, depression, suicidal feelings, abuse & bi-polar. I am also a highly qualified couples counsellor able to work with complex relationship issues, but frequently also work with individuals on their relationship difficulties. The quality of relationships can be severely impacted by betrayals, addictions or simply disconnections in emotional contact; therapy can help you work through these difficult experiences, and help you to find your resilience, robustness and self-belief again.

I provide flexible appointment times to suit your needs. I am always happy to have a one off session, in order for you to see whether you feel I am the 'right' therapist for you.

I am a lecturer at the acclaimed Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling (bcpc.org) on the accredited Diploma and lead the Post Qualifying Advanced Intersubjective Diploma in Relational Psychotherapy at Therapyworks.training in Cardiff; previously the only trainer to lecture on every year of every cohort of the USW/UWN accredited PG Counselling & Psychotherapy Dip. between 2006 & 2016. I am committed to helping develop the next generation of exceptional psychotherapists & advancing the practice of those already qualified.

While many counsellors will ask you to see them in their homes, which can be uncomfortable to say the Ieast, as a psychotherapist I see clients in two discrete, exceptionally bright and comfortable counselling practices - one right in the heart of Cardiff & the other in Monmouth Town. Both have free car parking directly outside, waiting rooms and toilet facilities for comfort breaks - all to help take as much of the stress and anxiety out of situation as possible.

An entirely 'open' contract means that you are in control of how long you wish to stay in therapy and can stop the counselling process at any time that you feel is best - without any prior notice.

My counselling practice is collaborative. I invite you to discuss with me your goals for the therapy. Or put another way, how you would like to be when the therapy successfully ends. Perhaps you are not quite sure what that may look like yet and would like to talk it through with me .

For those unfamiliar with counselling jargon - an 'integrative approach' simply means that I am able to 'integrate' or choose from any number of theoretical approaches. This has the advantage of being incredibly flexible and of giving you the client an important voice in just how much or how little change you would like to achieve and over what length of time.

For more detailed information on my counselling & psychotherapeutic practice you can go to either of these two websites: thetherapyworks.org or for couples counselling, please go to: therelationshipworks.co.uk and for post-qualifying training please go to therapyworks.training

Further information

Take the first step

I am aware from my own experiences of being a client, that taking that first step into counselling can be frightening.

Facing up to long time problems which may at some level feel impossible to deal often takes either a blind leap of faith or just plain desperation. So if you do make it through the door, please remember that any therapist in private practice works for you. As such I operate an open contract which means that you are not committed to having to come to therapy for any set length of time but rather are free to determine as and when you feel you would like to stop. In other words if at any point you feel it is not working just drop me an email or text to let me know you no longer wish to attend. My experience is the opposite but I think it's important for you to know that you are the one in the power.

And while I hope to bring a degree of experience and theoretical knowledge to the meeting, I am not an expert on your life - you are. It is that collaborative meeting of our different histories, however, that can be so useful and healing. No matter how great the problem feels for you now working side by side I aim to facilitate you to achieve the goals and changes that you need to create a greater sense of meaning in everyday life and key relationships.
