About me

Are you feeling unhappy, overwhelmed or stuck? Counselling can help you understand your thoughts, feelings and experiences in a new way so that you can regain that sense of balance and well-being that is central to your happiness.

I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist who can offer a safe, confidential and supportive space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings. I work in a collaborative way, helping you to unravel your life's events in order to achieve a greater sense of understanding and well being.

My approach

As a relational integrative counsellor, my approach incorporates elements from the three main schools of psychotherapy – Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).  This allows for great flexibility in the way we can work together. My focus tends to be on the relationships you have in your life - with others, with yourself and with the world around you. We are relational creatures and having that sense of connection is vital to our well-being.

It is important that you feel you are in control of your counselling sessions, so we will always focus on what is important to you on the day.  We can book an initial session and discuss any anxieties you may have about counselling.  Then, if you feel I am the right counsellor for you, we can arrange further sessions. It’s entirely up to you how many sessions you would like to have.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).

In addition to my private practice work, I have also worked for Cardiff MIND, Cardiff University and Cardiff Metropolitan University.
