About me

I provide counselling and/or Gestalt psychotherapy on a one to one basis for people experiencing distress in their lives. I work from a Humanistic base which means that my aim is to support and enable each person to find the strength to overcome their difficulties in their own unique way.

Very often we feel alone and isolated in times of crisis, this is when therapy can help by sharing problems, feelings and thoughts that we are often too fearful or ashamed of sharing with family and friends.

I have had a great deal of experience working with people who have experienced bereavement, relationship breakdown, depression, low self-esteem and more complex mental health problems.

I work from established practices in Bridgend and Cardiff which have comfortable and private therapy rooms and are easily accessible by public transport.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a UKCP registered Gestalt Psychotherapist and also an Integrative Counsellor, I teach Counselling and Psychotherapy and am a qualified supervisor.

My initial training and qualifications were from the University of Wales, Newport where I gained my Diploma in Integrative Counselling in 2002 along side a PGCE.

I completed a 4 year Advanced Diploma in Gestalt Psychotherapy with the Welsh Psychotherapy Partnership, Cardiff in 2013 and a Diploma in Supervision at the Gestalt Centre in London in 2017.

I am a registered member of UKCP.
