About me

Hi, thanks for reading my profile, I practice in Cardiff, am an Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy [BACP (accred)]. I offer face to face appointments in a relaxed confidential space, I also work online or via the telephone. My practice as a therapist has allowed me to work with clients of all ages from all backgrounds with wide ranging issues.

Life is good at throwing problems our way and counselling can help to make sense of what’s happening. I enjoy working with clients so that they achieve their goals, I pay attention to what is happening in your world right now, what is influencing your life and thoughts and work to improve your quality of life and work life balance. Giving you a space where you can be heard and respected, coach you to overcome the challenges of modern life.

I can work with you if you are troubled by Depression, Anxiety, Relationship issues, thinking of separation or divorce, suffering Addiction, family conflict, panic attacks or low mood. These are just a sample of the many areas that counselling can help with. Together we can explore ways to improve your well being.

BACP

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.
