About me

                                        ONLINE APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE

NOTE: Due to COVID-19 social distancing measures I am currently only offering online and telephone sessions.

Life is a journey full of ebbs and flows of experiences, sometimes those experiences are harder than others and you may find yourself in a place that feels difficult, repetitive, lost, stuck or out of control. You may have recently experienced a life transition and finding it difficult to adjust to the changes. Perhaps you suffer with symptoms of depression or you experience unwanted feelings of anxiety? Or perhaps you notice unhealthy patterns in your relationship with yourself and others?

I am a compassionate, caring and highly qualified (Masters) integrative counsellor offering one to one counselling sessions for adults in the Newport area.  My approach to therapy draws on mainly humanistic and psychodynamic approaches with a touch of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). By offering an integrated approach I aim to meet your therapeutic goals whilst working at a pace that suits you and your lifestyle.

If you have any questions about how I can help or would like to book a session with me please do get in touch.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • MA in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy (Distinction)
  • Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy
  • Post Graduate Certificate in Counselling Skills
  • BSc(Econ) Sociology & Education

I keep my skills and knowledge of counselling up to date by regularly attending professional development workshops.

I have worked in private and public counselling organisations and have significant experience of working with adults on both a short and long term basis. I also currently volunteer and sit on the Management Committee for a Newport based counselling charity.

Member organisations


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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

There is a flight of stairs to access the therapy room.


I have availability during the weekday evenings and on a Saturday morning.
