About me and my therapy practice

Thank you for viewing my profile. I am a qualified integrative counsellor offering telephone and online private counselling session and some home visits (mid-wales).

We all experience times in our lives where we need support and guidance; to be reminded that just beyond despair lies hope. Have you experienced a challenging or traumatic element of your life and find daily functioning more difficult than before? Do you find simple daily tasks a struggle? Thoughts are sometimes muddled and you cant seem to find clarity? Find yourself wondering what your life means, what its really about? Want to understand yourself better, be able to cope with life's challenges as they present themselves?

Following a personal trauma which left me feeling vulnerable and lost, I have spent the last 20 years training and working to learn how to help people adjust and make the appropriate change in their lives. I passionately believe that everyone has the capacity to change if they choose, to learn about themselves, to find their own unique, innate self-healing tool kit to repair patterns of emotional and physical behavior. 

"When we are no longer able to change a situation - we are challenged to change ourselves" Viktor E. Frankl

Practice description

Using a holistic approach I strive to establish a connection with my clients before we even begin our sessions, as I believe having the right person to support you is as vital as the support itself. As we progress through our work together we will determine what is the right style of therapy or coaching for you.

I specialise in tackling Life Limiting Illness, Bereavement, Anxiety, Fear, Low Self-Esteem, Loss, Trauma, Sexual Abuse, Existential Crisis, Panic Attacks, Family Issues, Feeling Sad, Stress and Personal Development. I offer a safe, non-judgmental, empathic space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. I seek to nurture resilience and build a state of empowerment which provides us with the strength to cope with the sometimes overwhelming, challenging and exhausting experience that can be life.

I liken being an human to the structure of a tree. For us to be able to weather the storms of life we first need to grow strong, deep roots that can support us. Together we will work on what you have faced or are facing now and look at what you require to strengthen those roots. Sometimes that is a non-judgmental, compassionate space to be heard and understood and sometimes it is deeper work to understand oneself and to strength or build the roots you feel you need in order to better manage life.

My first session

Your initial consultation will be free of charge; as I believe it is important for you to be able to choose the counsellor who is right for you. 

This consultation will last 30 mins and will be via telephone or an online platform such as zoom or doxy, during which we will discuss why it is you are interested in counselling and what you would like to get from our work together. I will ask a variety of questions to help me understand you and your needs and I will tell you about myself and my way of working. This will allow us to determine if we feel that working together will be what you need and be of benefit to you.  

If you choose to go work with me our sessions will be £45 per session.
