About me and my therapy practice

I believe in working with the ‘whole’ person as opposed to fixing an issue. It takes an awful lot of courage to decide that the time is right to take a journey in to ‘self’ and I am experienced to accompany you on your very personal journey.

My area of interest is based in the neuroscience of early trauma and attachment and the spiralling effect it can have on later life choices. 

I believe that given the right conditions, congruence; empathy; curiosity; knowledge and greater understanding; an accepting environment; a readiness and determination to work, that positive life change can most certainly occur.

Practice description

My practice is based in a beautifully, central location in Cardiff. It has wonderful parks close by for some quiet, reflective space to process.

It has car parking nearby and is also accessible via public transport. Nearest bus stop no more than 150 yards away.

Our office has access for the mobility impaired and is serviced with lifts. There is a pleasant waiting area with beautiful stained glass windows (an old temple building). 

Variety of teas, coffee and a selection of bottled water provided.

My first session

First session will include an assessment of needs (suitability for counselling), formal contracting that covers confidentiality, timing, fees and payment method etc. and time left to get a feel for the room, space and to start the building blocks of our therapeutic relationship in readiness for your journey.
