A very warm welcome to Therapy Wales and North West: I am a registered member of BABCP, and a trained specialist in trauma focused therapy. I deliver a psychotherapy service for children, adolescents, and adults experiencing psychological and emotional challenges in life. Working together, my aim is to guide you towards a better understanding of your personal experiences and circumstances, and towards new ways of coping and living. I use evidence based cognitive behavioural psychotherapy (CBT) in my approach, and offer psychotherapeutic insight on how to successfully overcome challenges you face, as well as identifying strategies to support your continued well-being after you complete therapy.
My practice is founded upon my guiding values of building a collaborative therapeutic relationship, and supporting your discovery toward change and empowerment through adhering to the evidence based therapy approaches.

Along with the principles of my training, it is my personal view that people are doing the best that they can in their circumstances, and deserve opportunity to find their way to positive change for a happy, healthy minded life.
