About me

We all need a helping hand from time to time and there are times in life when we just can't seem to sort out the jigsaw. Talking to a trained and experienced Counsellor, who is impartial and unbiased, can give you the space you need to find a way forward. Sometimes life gets too much and you can find yourself feeling confused, anxious, angry, depressed or lost and this can feel bewildering and lonely.

I graduated from the University of South Wales, Family Institute with a BSc Honours Degree in Counselling (First). I am experienced in counselling practice with both adults and children aged 4 years above.

What is Counselling?

Counselling can and may take many different formats to bring to a person a better understanding of themselves and others.

It's about helping and supporting a person to find an understanding and maybe an answer to what works for them.  Some people usually find counselling very liberating and an empowering experience; that is not to say that they do not feel nervous or daunted when first approaching a counsellor, they do, however, a counsellor offers a supportive and positive approach to personal development and this process and feeling afterwards are usually very positive and beneficial.

How I Work

My aim is to work in a Person Centred way, that is, a non-directive way to provide a space where you can feel non-judged, supported and understood, deepening your awareness of your unique patterns of feeling, thinking and behaviour. This process of gaining insight and greater self-compassion offers the potential for you to make informed choices and experience your personal and professional life as more fulfilling.  I am an empathic and insightful counsellor providing down-to-earth therapy to help you make the changes you want.  Each session will last 50 minutes and what you wish to discuss is entirely up to you. I will help you to make your own decisions and to take more control over your life.

Where I work

I work from Bridgend at Oak Tree Surgery in Brackla.

So if you are facing a crisis or a period of change in your life, then maybe counselling could help you.

I am a registered Counsellor with the British Association of Counselling Practice (BACP) https://www.bacp.co.uk and I am ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) trained.

I am currently offering a private counselling service to adults on either an open ended basis or for an agreed period of time.

Each session will last for 50 minutes.
