I offer face to face sessions in Llanidloes and also offer support by phone or zoom.
COVID safety is in place in my practice room.
Due to the pandemic the last 14 months have thrown up all sorts of challenges and difficulties.
If you are feeling anxious, suffering low mood and feelings of overwhelm, believe me you are not alone.
It's amazing how much the human spirit can take, but this year with separation from loved ones, friends and perhaps working from home/or having lost work, there have been all sorts of extra pressures to contend with.
This has had huge impact on mental and emotional health.
You may have found your stress levels, anxiety levels or sense of 'not coping' have gone through the roof. Old habits and patterns from the past might have reared their head and are causing you pain.
I am a creative integrative practitioner and I work to support people to understand more about what they are feeling through a safe containing process.
I offer sessions which work to enable a connection to a 'deeper knowing'', of what you might be finding challenging or wanting to change in your life, so that this can support you to develop a more vital and resilient way of being in the world.
I also work relationally which means we are in a dialogue together, I will offer you concepts and reflections which enable an opportunity to clarify what is troubling you and find some meaning through these challenges.
Most people say that the most powerful aspect of their counselling process was having been heard, validated and witnessed without any pressure to be anything other than where they are in themselves -this moment.
It is my job to connect to what is most meaningful and useful for you within a confidential and nourishing space.
I work to meet you where you are and everyone's process is unique- just as we are all unique.
I work part time with the NHS Powys and offer private counselling for individuals.
I will work to support you towards finding balance and wellbeing by feeling met and heard. This process offers the opportunity develop personal resources towards a more fulfilling and nourishing life.
Training, qualifications & experience
I studied with Re-Vision Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy in London.
I am an Integrative Transpersonal Counsellor which means I integrate many different theoretical teachings and tools which offer rich perspectives to support our work together
My work is fundamentally a talking therapy but can include creative exploration if this suits you or you are interested to work this way.
This can include writing, drawing (mark making), chair work and embodiment work. Expressive, creative or nature activities can enable a connection to a deeper sense of the unconscious offering perspectives which may be meaningful to you.
Every process is different. Every person is different, we explore and navigate this process together.
You are also welcome and encouraged to bring any dreams to our sessions. These can also gain us precious insight into your inner world.
I am also nature connection therapist and some people prefer this mode of exploration. We can discuss this and vary between indoor, online or in nature sessions.
A transpersonal approach means we hold a sense of the 'bigger picture' of life looking to make some meaning from its challenges. You might want to consider what you yearn for or what you might feel calling you.
I run various wellbeing workshops and events throughout the year and you can find out more all of my services on my website.
If you would like to speak with me about options, I offer a free 30min call, so please get in touch if you would like.
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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
