About me

I offer cognitive behavioural therapy, incorporating elements of integrative counselling and mindfulness.

I work with a client by trying to understand the underlying reasons why they may be feeling a particular way, and then developing strategies with them to help shift this.

In particular we may focus on changing unhelpful thoughts and behaviours, but also looking at a person's life as a whole, and working together to see if any changes or adjustments would be beneficial.

I also teach and promote the use of mindfulness techniques, which may be helpful in reducing the impact of negative thinking that can be a feature of depression and aniexty based problems in particular.

I am a dedicated and passionate psychotherapist who continues to have success working collaboratively with a number of clients presenting problems.

If I can be of any assistance, or you have any questions, then please feel free to contact me.

Training, qualifications & experience

In 2017 I obtained a BACP Accredited Post Graduate Diploma in CBT at the University of South Wales.

Currently I have MBACP Registered Membership, but am working towards individual accreditation, also with the BACP.

I have a proven track record, most recently working for the NHS waiting list initiative for Aneurin Bevan Health Board.

Additionally I have worked for a variety of organisations as a counsellor including The Samaritans (Listening Volunteer), Hold Out a Hand Bereavement (HOAH), Cruse Bereavement, Torfaen Mind, and Cardiff City Council funded Connections Counselling Drug and Alcohol Service.

I also maintain a small private practice based in central Newport.
