About me

Hello. I offer individual and couples psychotherapy in Swansea, South Wales, and do so currently online via video conferencing platforms.

I am a UKCP accredited psychotherapist and NCS accredited senior accredited counsellor. UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) is the UK’s professional body for accrediting psychotherapists. NCS is the National Counselling Society.

Individual Psychotherapy

I offer a space in which a client feels safe enough to share whatever they need to. I listen, deeply and attentively, with compassion and without judgement and work collaboratively to help the client to gain greater awareness of the issues that have brought them to therapy and to start to understand how change is possible. I believe that change needs a lot of support and a bit of healthy challenge, it needs old experiences to be reworked in the light of new insights and it needs to unfold within relationship.

The therapeutic relationship is the most important feature of the therapy that I provide. Humans are social beings, and we depend on one another for survival and happiness. Relationships are always complicated and sometimes harmful. As children, we learn everything we know, feel and do through relationships with our caregivers. We also need relationships to create meaning and work out answers to our most fundamental existential questions; who am I, who are these others and what are we supposed to be doing in the world?

Symptoms and Mental Health Issues which I work with include;

  •         depression
  •         anxiety
  •         verbal, physical and sexual abuse and neglect
  •         childhood trauma
  •         relationship issues
  •         pregnancy and childbirth issues for men
  •         bereavement and loss
  •         personality disorders
  •         post-traumatic stress
  •         obsessive compulsive patterns
  •         autistic spectrum disorders

Couples Therapy

The most important relationship in couples therapy is the couple. Therapy provides a more facilitative role, exploring current impasses in communication and affection in the context of historical patterns, both for the relationship and each partner. By exploring each partners relational needs and how they are or are not currently being met, couples therapy can create the possibility of individual growth as well as maturation of the relationship.

Accessibility

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

Availability

In the current COVID-19 situation, I am providing all work through encrypted online video conferencing platforms.
