Well done! ....you have taken a very brave step on your journey in the search for a therapist and am pleased you have been led to my profile. I am a 'down to earth', intuitive therapist who will offer you the opportunity to talk about your difficulties,with gentleness, genuineness and understanding. The time and place I offer brings an opportunity to stop, step back, reflect and look at what you need.
I feel who I am, is just as important as what I do, as I consider the therapeutic relationship is central to effective counselling. My respect for each person as a unique individual has led me to train in an integrative approach to counselling as I believe not one form of therapy fits all.
I am able to neither 'solve' your problems nor give advice, but can be alongside you as I do believe we all hold the right decision within us, although we do not know it yet! I can provide mindfulness and relaxation techniques along with other strategies that can be used to enhance your everyday life.
I truly believe we all have the capacity for healing and growth
I am able to provide counselling via Skype or telephone in the current Covid situation.
I have previously worked at Mind Pembrokeshire working with clients with diverse mental health issues, for Ddas (drug and alcohol misuse) and Cruse bereavement as well as private practice.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
