About me

I am a National Counselling Society accredited Counsellor and Supervisor and have a private practice in Little Mill, Pontypool.  I have experience of working with clients living with anxiety, stress, depression, low confidence and self-esteem, relationship issues, bereavement and other life crises.

I specialise in Emotional Therapeutic Counselling, which is a person centred and interactive approach to helping you to achieve a wholeness of mind, body and soul.  A key aspect of Emotional Therapeutic Counselling is the range of techniques and creative tools that can be used to assist you to both recognise and release painful feelings in an appropriate manner, by working with your emotions.

The therapeutic counselling goes at your pace and the number of sessions will vary according to your needs.  I can offer you a safe, calm and non-judgemental environment to explore the difficulties you are facing in your life.

It is important that you find a therapeutic counsellor you feel comfortable with so I offer a free 30-minute consultation during which you have the opportunity to meet me and ask any questions you may have to help you make the right choice for you.

I have experience of short focused counselling working extensively with a local council and other organisations offering counselling in this way. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold an Advanced Diploma in Emotional Therapeutic Counselling and a member of the Foundation for Emotional Therapeutic Counselling.

Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society.
I hold a Certificate in Education and a BA Hons in Education and Training.

My previous role within the public sector has given me extensive experience of dealing with all sorts of traumatic events.  It is through this experience I am able to help those who have suffered as a result of physical or mental trauma.  I chose to train as an Emotional Therapeutic Counsellor because I strongly believe in the importance of emotional health. This holistic, integrative approach is a gentle path to finding the real You.

I am committed to continued professional development.
