About me

Hi, I am a fully qualified and experienced Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist (Level 7), providing a confidential and professional counselling service for adults, children and young people. I also offer professional Supervision to other Counsellors. I have practice venues based in Skewen SA10/SA7 (Nr Neath), Swansea SA1,Port Talbot SA13 and Neath SA11.

My Counselling practice aims to give you the opportunity to explore your problems, distresses or any difficult situations that you are experiencing in a confidential, non-judgmental, safe and supportive environment.

As a Counsellor I feel privileged to be part of your journey and work to facilitate you through your difficulties so that they become more manageable. Working together we can find creative and positive ways forward by looking at your problems from different perspectives to find meaning in your life, and/or help you aquire new skills/techniques to assist you in overcoming the issues you are facing.  Problems sometimes go on for a long time and you cannot see a way out of them or they can make you feel out of control, but CHANGE IS POSSIBLE.

How I work

I am a Relational Integrative Counsellor which means I am able to combine theory and techniques from a variety of major theoretical approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person Centred and Psychodynamic and integrate them into a single approach.  This has the advantage of being incredibly flexible and creative in my practice and tailor my work to your specific needs or goals.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
