About me

                                              Room in Central Newport

I am a highly qualified (Level 7) integrative counsellor, registered with the BACP, offering one to one counselling sessions for adults in the Newport area. The therapy I offer is tailored to meet your goals whilst working at a pace that suits you and your lifestyle.

I am compassionate and caring and will welcome you into a safe and confidential space. I will listen to your journey and strive to walk next to you every step of the way, with every step facilitating a new understanding of you and your world.  It is through the therapeutic relationship that we can explore the issues that are important to you, whether they are in your past or your present, together we will work on a future that is right for you.
