About me

Life can sometimes seem overwhelming with events challenging our relationships with others and ourselves. Trying to cope can lead to; patterns of unhelpful behaviour, stress, lack of motivation, sadness, feeling isolated and ignoring feelings of your own. This can soon become the norm.

I  am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society and my work life prior to this includes over 20 years working within the NHS. During this time I have gained a deeper understanding of how poor emotional health and a feeling of 'losing your way in life' can have a significant negative effect on your general well being.

I offer Integrative therapy at MaVie Counselling to help you gain a better understanding of yourself which in turn can help you to better understand others. This means that I may use one or more approaches in order to offer the therapy best suited to you. I understand that everyone has different needs, experiences and expectations from the counselling process. This is done in a welcoming, confidential and safe environment.

Drop me an e-mail at: MaVie.Counselling@gmail.com or contact me on: 07763781225 We can discuss setting up the initial session and your hopes from counselling.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

Wheelchair user access

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.

Since July 2021 I continue to see most of my clients via the video platform Zoom, but also have some availability for face to face sessions in Cowbridge.
