I have worked as a counsellor since 2007. I believe that Counselling should be accessible to everyone.
Complex issues can be made less challenging and daunting by Talking Therapy.
I trained as an Integrative Counsellor, and my main area of expertise are working with Addictions, from Substance to Sexual or Gambling.Sexual Abuse, Mental Health, Anxiety and working as a Young Person Counsellor.
I strongly believe that sessions do not follow a strict format but should flow depending on what the client wishes to work on. My working Model can incorporate Art therapy, looking at the past, life patterns but working eclectically to get the best results for a client. I foster a common sense approach and look at the every day life lessons that we can learn.
The Counselling relationship should be right for you and I am happy to assist you with making informed choices about how you can explore the things that have lead you to access counselling.
Counselling should be about enriching our lives and making choices that shape your future, whilst sometimes making the past not such a scary place.
I work covering the area of Monmouth Abergavenny and Caerphilly
My work has led me down a path to be much more intuitive within myself, compassionate, kind and to challenge people negative perceptions. The counselling Journey can help you fulfil your self-esteem goals and establish a genuineness where you can truly be yourself and belong safely.

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.

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).
