About me

Welcome to Brilliant Green Therapy. This is my therapy practice which takes its name and inspiration from the brilliant green dragonfly. It is a powerful and timeless symbol of transformation, of healing old wounds, a time of awakening, change and self-realisation. The decision to engage in therapy is one such time. 

I have worked as a therapist, supervisor and manager of counselling services for over 20 years in the private, statutory and voluntary sectors. My predominant areas of counselling experience include rape, sexual abuse and trauma histories for children, young people and adults, gender and sexual identities, psychosexual and intimacy issues for individuals and couples and loss and bereavement.

Please contact me for a discussion about your current situation and the type of assistance you are seeking. I offer face to face and remote sessions from my therapy rooms in South Wales.

I also offer training and consultancy services for the set up, delivery, design and planning of therapy services.

Member organisations


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.

Further information

'The traffic in the distance hums of work and toil,

The whistle of the bird finding worms in the soil,

And then there's you,

And then there's you.

Some people walk in the cracks, some people slip through,

Where did you stand when you had the best view?

So take a moment now and settle in the seat,

And let's review your life and your moment of defeat.

You can tell your story and show me how to see,

What stops you reaching your goals and dreams and how you learned to be?

And I will slowly guide you, back to feeling good,

And praise and encourage you and show you that you could,

Be the person you were years ago and maybe something more,

Because my job is to listen and simply help unlock that door.'
