About me

I am a BACP registered Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Life Coach working in South Wales.

I have experience across a range of issues, including anxiety disorders and depression, trauma and abuse, grief, relationship and marital difficulties, some eating disorders and long term low self-esteem.

My model of therapy is ‘relational’, with the central focus on the therapeutic relationship and how it can help heal emotional traumas.  I have trained in all the three main schools of therapy; psychodynamic, person centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and completed a number of workshops and educational courses on other approaches such as acceptance commitment therapy, solution focused therapy and transactional analysis (see continuous professional training below).  I do not offer a pure model of working, but instead work in an integrative way, bringing in different models depending on the client's needs.

I have a particular interest in the healing power of nature, and finding nature-based sources of self-healing, whether that is ‘forest bathing’, natural environmental sounds, bird watching, or any other kind of activity that allows people to connect with nature in a more meaningful way.

Taking the first step

If you are considering therapy, the first step is to make an initial enquiry.  I am always open to answer any questions you may have about the process, or about me as a therapist.

I am warm, empathetic and always work in a collaborative way with my clients.  If you feel comfortable about working with me, we can book an initial session and see how it goes.  There’s no commitment to stay – the direction and duration of your therapy is in your hands.
