About me

Sometimes life becomes overwhelming, you can feel like you have lost control. I would like to help you find you again. Counselling  enables you to explore your experiences, whilst being mindful and non judgemental to your perspective. Enabling you to regain clarity in your world. I have  been fortunate to support many people through difficult circumstances.

The counselling room is in the centre of Bridgend Town. It is small yet inviting, providing a space for you to explore your experiences. As a counsellor I have been privileged to have worked within adult and children's counselling charities over the past 4 years, enabling me to appreciate others perspective  without judgement. Giving me an insight into the trauma and distress an individual may experience at a young age which can stay with them and encroach on their daily life. As a Person centred counsellor I provide a space to explore your own distress, with counselling you can reflect and reassess difficulties safely.

As an individual BACP member, i am bound to work ethically and honestly with all clients ensuring confidentiality and safety of the client.

I have first hand experience of the difficulties that life throw at an individual. I have also come out the otherside. This empathy enables me discuss  tools and and ways to contentment. Prior to  counselling I have previously worked in manufacturing management. This gave me  further incite into the work pressures versus life balance that many people find themselves experiencing.

Should you feel ready to make contact with me please telephone or email. Once contact is made we will discuss your requirements prior to arranging the 1st session.
