About me

I am a qualified Counsellor with a foundation degree in Integrative Counselling. Being an integrative counsellor means I use different approaches to suit individual needs I specialise in the Psychodynamic and Person-Centred model.

We all need help from time to time as all the pressures of life can sometimes overwhelm us. Whether you have a specific issue, or are feeling disconnected from life and experiencing disharmony with your identity, the inner conflict you are experiencing can manifest itself in anxiety and ill mental and physical health, I am passionate about working with the connection between mental and physical health and fully embrace a holistic approach, discovering or reconnecting with your authentic self, brings the awareness that can lead to a healthier, more autonomous and fulfilled life, to the life you want to be living!

I have a lot of experience in working with addiction and trauma, by exploring and working with how the past influences the present, can help with unhealthy patterns of thinking and behaviour, that might be causing anxiety, stress and impacting on all aspects of life including relationships. Through our therapeutic relationship I can offer the empathy and safety you need to explore your feelings, I can accompany you on your journey to find the answers you do have within you!

I have experience of working with a range of client issues and a wealth of life experience, however, it is my belief that the therapeutic relationship is fundamental to enable the working alliance, so if you would like to see if I am the therapist for you, please get in touch. I can see you at the therapy rooms in Chepstow or from my practice at home in the tranquil surroundings on the edge of the forest.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
