About me and my therapy practice

I live and work in the county of Carmarthenshire where I enjoy the unique beauty of the surrounding countryside and beaches.

I originally trained as a mental health nurse in the late 1980’s, specialising in group work in therapeutic day services. My training was humanistic and person-centred and I was encouraged to listen carefully to the people I was working with and to trust their wisdom about their experience, rather than defining them by a diagnosis.

From 2009 I trained as an integrative counsellor and I am now registered and accredited with the BACP. My approach to my clients is compassionate and mindful. I have training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Cognitive Based Trauma Therapy and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy. I have worked for a women’s centre, in a university and for the NHS.

Over the years I have been honoured to accompany many people on a small part of their life’s journey and have been inspired by the courage, tenacity, and wisdom of those I have worked alongside.

I am nourished and supported by my insight meditation practice, my relationship with plants and animals and my practice of self expression through movement and dance. I love to sing and play the piano and I am engaged in a number of local community projects.
