About me

I am a bilingual (Welsh and English) counsellor registered with the BACP.  Whatever concerns or issues you may face we can find a way to talk about it in a safe, non-judgemental space at a pace that is right for you. I am passionate about therapy and how it can help people come to terms with the events and life experiences which can have a profound effect on how we view the world and how we form relationships.

I use an integrative relational approach with a focus on building a strong therapeutic relationship.  I work with you to further develop self-awareness, understanding and confidence which can lead to clarity, insight and change. My training and way of working provides a flexible approach allowing your needs to be met with compassion and patience.  For me, therapy is an encouraging and supportive environment providing new ways of being in the world through a safe nurturing environment whereby life experiences can be shared constructively.

Training, qualifications & experience

Before embarking on a career in counselling I worked as a primary school teacher in various roles including Additional Learning Needs Co-ordinator and Deputy Headteacher. I trained for four years at the University of South Wales resulting in a Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I have worked with Tenovus and in NHS GP surgeries in Cardiff and the Vale.   I’m an Associate Counsellor with PAM Wellbeing working as an in-house counsellor at various locations and on the Employee Assist Programs.  I also work in private practice helping clients with a variety of issues and with Cruse Bereavement Care as a supervisor.

I have extensive experience of working with bereavement/grief and Traumatic Bereavement, which was the focus of the Masters.  I also work with other wide-ranging issues such as Anxiety, Depression, Dissociation, Identity problems, Self Esteem, Stress, Trauma and work related issues. See below for further details.
