About me

                    'The wound is the place where the light enters you.' - Rumi

Recent discoveries in neuroscience have shown that new connections and pathways in the brain can be formed throughout our lives. In therapy we use the therapeutic relationship to create new emotional experiences that form new connections in your brain. These new neural connections help to re-integrate areas that have become fragmented as a result of adverse life experiences. This new way of being will ripple through other aspects of your life and change your relationship with the world around you.

​I have a practice in central Cardiff (Mon + Tues) and in Bristol (Fridays) as well as working at The Priory Hospital where I am an integrative therapist and EMDR practitioner (please see above for more info about EMDR). I work with a wide range of psychological issues and I have a particular interest in working with complex trauma where I use EMDR therapy to help re-process the different layers of trauma that build up over time and ease mental distress. I draw upon the psychodynamic modality theory which reflects on the potential impact of early relationships and experiences on mental and physical health.

​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. This is 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 use VSee a confidential, free video messenger app similar to Skype, that was developed by doctors to conduct consultations online. (If you don't have VSee don't panic it is also possible to use Wire,  Zoom or Skype but we can discuss this before you start your sessions.)

I work with a variety of issues including:

​- Anxiety
- Depression
- Bereavement
- Anger management
- Addictions
- Feelings of isolation/loneliness
- Relationship issues
- Exam stress
- Life coaching

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.
