About me and my therapy practice

 I am a highly experienced, genuine and caring Counsellor with a natural ability to put you at your ease and help you with your emotional wellbeing.

 Approachable and discreet, I work within an Integrative framework, which combines CBT, Humanistic/Person Centered and Psychodynamic methodology. 

I also have a keen interest in the use of creative methods, as I believe that the unconscious mind holds a lot of answers. I have extensive experience of counselling within a vast range of counselling environments.

 I have trained in working therapeutically with L.G.B.T.Q. clients and pride myself in practicing in an L.G.B.T.Q. affirmative way. I also offer therapy for children aged 04-11 and have worked as a primary school counsellor.

If you choose to see me on a confidential "face to face" basis, I offer a warm, safe and comfortable environment and surroundings, where you will not be judged or criticised.

 We are all unique and I aim to provide a bespoke service that is tailored towards your individual needs, adapting my experience, expertise and training in order to help you find the way forward. 

 Living with the demands and cut and thrust of today's hectic world I understand that sometimes we can lose our sense of who we are. I aim to assist in helping find the 'you' once more. I believe that it is 'you' that matters. 

Communicating is the first step towards healing. It is one of the hardest steps to take, but once taken, it can become one of the greatest. You can do it.

About me and my therapy practice

I offer individual supervision to qualified counsellors and to counsellors in training.

I can work with you face to face or online via the various methods available.

I can provide sessions to meet your required supervision hours with regular frequency to enable you to meet the needs of your agency and/or regulatory body.

I work within Integrative Model (R.I.M.) within a Pluralistic framework.

This means that I am able and happy to access varied methodologies which would be tailored with you and your practice in mind. I believe that even though we may have trained in different approaches, we are still individual as practitioners. I will hold and respect that. I believe that your wellbeing and safety is as valid as our clients wellbeing and safety.

We would work together to ensure that continues.

I  am also proud to have been featured as one of Gwent's  Inspirational Women of 2022. 

Practice description

I am flexible, ethical yet 'real' and transparent in my approachand practice and my supervision is offered at the highest standard due to my vast experience and knowledge. 

​If you are interested in accessing clinical supervision, then I suggest we talk in the first instance, to discuss your expectations of supervision and the supervisory relationship.

My first session

Our first session would be to explore if you are happy to work with me. I believe that supervision is not 'one size fits all', but a large part depends on the relationship between us. I feel that it's important to be comfortable and to trust that the supervisor hears you. I aim to be that person.
