About me

I have extensive experience working as a creative therapist and solution focused therapist with children, young people and adults. As a neurodivergent person I have lived experience of the challenges that can come up when you experience the world differently, so I offer an understanding space for those who feel excluded, lonely and overwhelmed by the world. I have extensive experience working with those recovering from trauma and complex trauma, using creative methods to find expression for experiences. For couples and families I offer solution focused sessions to improve communications and ways of being together.
As a Dramatherapist I offer a safe creative space to explore what might be difficult to say in words, as an Environmental Art Therapist I offer a creative way of working outside in natural spaces, utilising the beautiful and wild spaces in Swansea.

Therapies offered

Individual Dramatherapy/Creative Psychotherapy/Counselling

Ongoing regular therapy which allows for you to develop self-understanding in a safe space over a period of time. This can be short term or longer term.


For Adults, children and adolescents

Solution Focused Therapy Sessions

For individuals, couples and families

Solution focused therapy is a conversation that is future-thinking; helping you visualise a detailed picture of what you want your future to look like in order to move forward.

I offer one-off solution-focused sessions with follow-on sessions arranged as needed, on an ad-hoc basis. 

Environmental Art Therapy 

Work in the environment is extremely deep and rich and healing. I offer Environmental Art Therapy sessions in weekly, fortnightly or monthly. 

Online Therapy

Email counselling is the exchange of therapeutic emails. You can take your time to read and write emails during periods that suit you.

Group Dramatherapy/Workshops

Group dramatherapy runs at various points throughout the year on and offline

Workshops run at various points throughout the year on and offline
