About me

Do you need to get yourself back on track ? Would you like someone to listen, talk to and understand you ?  Take your first step today and contact me and together we will work towards positive change.                                                                                           

QualificationsI studied at the University of South Wales, Caerleon and I am a professionally qualified, Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT), who specialises in bereavement, anxiety, depression and confidence building. Using CBT we will work together and tailor therapy to your individual needs and aim to get you back on track quickly. I am particularly focussed on taking an active and pragmatic approach supporting clients step by step to achieve their goals.

About CBT

CBT is the recommended therapy by NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence), as it is proven to be effective at treating a wide range of emotional disorders such as anxiety and depression. It looks at how our thoughts affect how we feel and how these feelings directly influence behaviour.

How I can help in our sessions

Have you ever stopped and taken note of what was going through your mind when you felt a dip in mood? Have you noticed how you behaved when you felt that way? Through CBT you can gain an awareness of: Why is this happening to me, why now and why will my problems not go away? In our sessions, we will teach you invaluable skills that will help you manage problematic emotions and help you avoid feeling this way in the future.

Location and next steps

I provide cognitive behavioural therapy in a private location, which is close to bus routes with off-road parking available. Our work together will be confidential, in a professional, comfortable setting. You will be given the opportunity to gain insight into difficult emotions, and work to find balance in your life. My aim is for you to feel that I understand and can see the world through your eyes. So if you are simply looking for someone to listen and understand you and maybe you have just lost your way in life please get in touch I can help.

I offer a safe, confidential space where you will feel a warm understanding and sensitive encouragement to explore your problems to help you move forward.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I specialise in Anxiety, Depression, Bereavement, Loneliness and Confidence building using activation methods and strategies. If you have lost your way and feel you  need someone to talk to and to get you back on track, take the first step today and contact me.

Fees

Additional information

The Counselling service is £45 per 50 minute session.

I believe that therapy should be accessible to everyone who needs it and I endeavour to make my fees as affordable as possible.

Finding the right therapist to work with is very important. I would suggest just making an appointment for one session. This would give you the opportunity to meet me, find out how we would work together and see if you would like to continue. If so we can then book in further sessions.

If you would like any further information please do not hesitate to call or email me. It will give us both the opportunity to discuss your needs further.

When I work

Flexible appointments available daytime and evenings.
