About me

***I OFFER ONLINE SESSIONS via fully encrypted platform Zoom (free to download) and I have a lot of experience doing this, I am also still offering face-2-face sessions.- see my website for more details***

I am an integrative therapist specialising in using eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy to treat a range of psychological issues. Compared to standard talking therapy EMDR generally takes a shorter amount of time to get to the root cause of the issue. Rather than just dealing with symptom management (like CBT), EMDR works directly with the cause of your distress.

​I have a practice in central Cardiff (Mon + Tues) and in Southville, Bristol (Wed, Thurs + Fri) as well as working at The Priory Hospital where I am an integrative therapist and EMDR practitioner. I am interested developmental neurobiology and the potential impact of early relationships and experiences on mental and physical health (See ACE study). I use EMDR therapy to help re-process the different layers of trauma that build up over time and ease mental distress.

​I am passionate about making counselling and psychotherapy more accessible and one way I can do this is by offering reduced rates for low income clients. I have a limited number of these appointments and they are negotiated on a case by case basis - give me a call on 07454533341 and we can discuss this. I also offer online therapy sessions which means that you can see me from your own house at your convenience. See my bookings information below for pricing.

​I also offer online therapy for which I use Zoom a confidential, GDPR compliant video app similar to Skype. You do not need to download any software, I will just send you a link for you to attend the appointment.

I also offer an intensive EMDR therapy treatment (see fee schedule for more details).

I work with a variety of issues including:

​- Traumatic stress
- Depression & anxiety
- Bereavement
- Anger management
- Addictions
- Feelings of isolation/loneliness
- Relationship issues
- Exam stress


If you have any questions about the way that I work or the therapy process in general give me a call on 07454 533 341​ and we can have a confidential chat.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.

Integrative Psychotherapy (Including EMDR therapy) £80 per hour

Intensive EMDR therapy £100 per hour- This format of EMDR is quick and efficient and can get to the root of the matter in only a few longer sessions. This is more suitable for less complex presentations but can be adapted for a wide range of issues. It is particularly good for people who are too busy to commit to regular weekly appointments.

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.

Wheelchair user access

My room is on the first floor and requires using stairs to access it.


I have appointments in Cardiff on Mondays and Tuesdays and in Bristol on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
