About me

I am an Integrative counsellor, trained in Humanistic and Integrative counselling as a well as IFS (Internal Family Systems Therapy).

I work in private practice with individuals online on Tuesdays, in person at the Cardigan Natural Healing Centre on Monday mornings, and also in person in a peaceful woodland setting (outdoors and in a yurt) in the Brynhoffnant area on Thursdays. I work on a long term or short term basis. 

I am a calm and patient person with 10 years of experience working in health and social care, including counselling with Cruse Bereavement Care and Mind. I also have an understanding of mindfulness and spiritual practices with 15 years experience in meditation. I am particularly interested in the relationship between our physical and emotional experiences; how emotions are held in our body.

Who I Work With

I work with a range of people experiencing difficult emotions including grief, anxiety, depression and issues of self-esteem as well people who are feeling stuck, have wounds from the past to heal, are going through a significant life change or who want to know and understand themselves better.

How I work

The core values behind all my work are Humanistic and person-centred which means that first and foremost I aim to understand things from my clients’ perspective, with respect and care.

Depending on what my clients would prefer I can offer Integrative counselling or IFS (Internal Family Systems Therapy).

Integrative counselling:

When I take an Integrative approach, I have a range of different therapies that I may draw on when working with clients where appropriate, including person-centred counselling, polyvagal theory, focusing, IFS, mindfulness and psychoeducaiton.

In sessions I work together with my clients offering them the opportunity to share, explore and better understand what is going on for them; allowing them the chance to be understood and heard in a private and impartial space, by a trained professional.

I don't give advice, but through careful listening and talking together, I aim to help clients find a greater sense of ease in themselves and in their lives.

IFS (Internal Family Systems Therapy):

IFS is a gentle and compassionate approach to psychotherapy that offers healing to emotionally wounded parts of ourselves.

It understands that we have different 'parts' to ourselves like an 'internal family'. A simple example might be, 'Part of me would like to go to the party and meet new people, and another part is feeling anxious and doesn't want to'.

Sometimes we have life experiences which wound or hurt some of our 'parts', and other 'parts' then try to protect us from the pain of these wounds. Despite this good intention, the ways these 'protective parts' try and protect us may cause difficulties in other areas of our lives. IFS acknowledges this good intention and welcomes all our 'parts', seeing that there are no 'bad parts', even the parts that may be seeming to cause difficulties.

In session, the therapist works with the client so they can understand and befriend their 'internal family', and offer healing to any 'wounded parts' that may need it, allowing 'protective parts' a break from their difficult roles.

It is sensitive approach that goes at the pace of the clients 'system', and does not force change, take sides or explore anything without the consent of the whole 'Internal Family'.

Free Initial Meeting

Counselling is a very personal experience and I believe it is important to find the right counsellor for you, which is why I offer a free initial meeting (online) of up to 30 mins to give us both the opportunity to meet each other and decide if we feel we would work well together. In this meeting my clients have the chance to tell me briefly what brings them to counselling, for me to explain how I work and for us both to ask each other questions.

Sessions After The Initial Meeting

If after this initial meeting the client decides they would like to work with me, and I feel I would be a suitable counsellor for them we would usually agree to meet for a weekly 50 mins session, at the same day and time each week. The number of sessions differs from client to client but we regularly review the process to ensure it is working for the client. The client can choose to finish at any point.

Arranging An Initial Meeting

If you would like to arrange your free initial meeting please contact me through this website or by email with some suggested times that you are available. I check my mail and respond to messages Monday-Friday between 9am-5pm, and aim to respond within 48hours.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
