About me

Life is never easy, but when we are also carrying old and new burdens this can make it even harder. If you are reading this then the chances are you are looking to talk over things with someone.  My aim is to help you talk through these issues and concerns, in the hope to empower you to find your own answers, which will help you to move forward in a life you can choose for yourself.

About me

I have worked as a qualified counsellor for over 5 years. Apart from my private practice I have worked with a counselling centre in Newport for nearly 10 years. During this time I have seen clients grow to be the people they want to be, achieving goals and finding  new confidences and strengths from within.

I offer a half hour initial session at a cost of £10.00 as I feel that it is important that we are comfortable with each other and that you are reassured of a safe and confidential environment.

During this time we can share your worries and concerns. We will be realistic, as there will be things that we cannot change and people or issues over which you have no control. But you can change your outlook on these issues and find a more balanced view point that sits well with you.

Possible ways of doing this is by:

  • Looking at your past and how that is currently affecting you.

  • Looking at past and present relationships.

  • Exploring what behaviour and beliefs you have about yourself and decide what is worth keeping and what you need to throw away.

  • To work towards a way of life that gives you peace and satisfaction for the future.

I offer 50 minute sessions of counselling where I hope you can feel free to explore what concerns you and then find your own answers to making changes, trying new ways of thinking and possibly doing things differently.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss your particular situation.

I am a registered member of BACP.
