In a true person-centred manner I believe that you, the client are in control of our sessions. After all you are your own expert. You can decide what we talk about and at what pace. I am able to offer short-term focused counselling working on a specific issue or long-term intervention for more deep-rooted issues.
I work out of a comfortable, safe room in Colwyn Bay which is very discreet.
I am an easy going, friendly person. This helps to establish a trusting relationship in order to allow you to open up without fear of judgement, ridicule or shame. I adapt my style and approach to suit you in order for you to get the most out of our sessions. I am passionate about the benefits of talking about issues and will be committed to providing you with the best therapy possible.
I have worked with people with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, social anxiety, childhood trauma and sexual abuse to name a few.
The initial consultation is free and there is no obligation to enter into counselling after this. It is more of an opportunity for us to get to know each other and for you to decide if we can work together. Concessions are available for counselling students and those on a low income. I have evening and weekend sessions available; for more details please send me an email, text, call or Facebook message.

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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
