I am a fully qualified and Insured Integrative Counsellor. I also teach Counselling and communications skills. I will offer you a 'safe and non judgemental environment' in which to explore your difficulties.
I live and work in Pembrokeshire and have done for the past 18 years. I will offer you a safe,comfortable and confidential environment in order to explore your difficulties.
I work with Individuals, couples and young people/adolescents in many areas ,including but not only - Abuse, Addiction(s), Anger Management, Anxiety, Depression, Eating disorders, General counselling, Health related issues, Obsessions, OCD, Personal Development, Phobias, Post-traumatic stress, Relationships, Self Esteem, Self Harm, Stress and Trauma.
Counselling does not need to only be about massive, life changing issues... Often, talking through something just once, can help you to 'make sense' of it, and move on....
I work for several voluntary organisations, as I believe that Counselling should be available to all, I also work for The emergency services and have my own private practice.
I have spent many years working within the field of Mental health in various capacities, including Mental Health Mentoring, advocacy, Recovery practitioner, and running self esteem groups and positive thinking groups.
I adhere to the BACP ethical framework and have regular monthly supervision in accordance with the BACP professional guidelines.
I do not have a 'one size fits all' approach. I work with my clients to help them work through their difficulties using various methods, depending on the client/clients.
Everyone I see is an individual and so I taylor my methods to suit them, and help them find their way.
