About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor who has worked professionally as a counsellor, trainer and supervisor for over 30 years.

I am currently a partner in a private practice providing counselling and supervision from accessible premises in the Canton area of Cardiff.

I also work as a counsellor on a residential treatment programme for people with alcohol and drug issues.

Throughout my years of work I have had the privilege of working with very many people on a wide variety of issues causing them stress, distress, anguish, anger, grief, confusion and anxiety. I have learned many things in all that time that I bring to my current practice.

My approach is Integrative, based on my belief that there is no one approach that is helpful in all situations.

For example, elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can be very useful in helping some people to identify, understand and modify entrenched patterns of unhelpful thinking which have contributed to their anxiety, depression and low self-esteem.

A Motivational Interviewing approach can help people understand, challenge and change problematic behaviours while Existential Therapy focusses on exploring the challenges and paradoxes of human existence and the search for meaning and purpose.

Whatever approach a counsellor takes however, research shows that it is the quality of the relationship that exists between a counsellor and client that really makes a difference to how well the therapy works. Crucial in my work is an ability to establish strong, empathic relationships with my clients, upon which the therapeutic work can be built.

If you would like to work with an experienced counsellor who will explore and collaborate with you in order to find a way forward through your troubles, dilemmas and difficulties, then please get in touch!
