About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified and experienced counsellor who has worked professionally for over 20 years.
I offer therapy that is integrative and flexible, drawing on systemic, CBT, Motivational Interviewing and solution focused brief therapy as well as incorporating Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) into my work, particularly for depression, stress and substance misuse related client issues.
My approach is respectful, warm, accepting and non judgemental, helping clients to realise and access their own strengths, resources, and solutions and recognise that change is possible through their strengths.
I have considerable training and experience in working with survivors of sexual abuse, domestic violence/coercive control, depression/anxiety, alcohol/substance misuse, fertility issues, relationship issues and working with couples.
For 21 years I have with a colleague provided the student and staff counselling service for the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. The students present with a wide range of issues that may impact on their mental health and wellbeing.
I have and continue to work with many Employee Counselling programs including many local authorities, NHS staff and South Wales police.
For many years I have provided consultation/supervision to senior nurses at Ty Hafan and to the Counsellor providers who work for IVF Wales.
