Practice description

After a career in law, I spent over 10 years helping people with mental health issues access support. I retrained as a counsellor to support people that found it hard to cope with life’s challenges, felt overwhelmed, anxious or depressed. Before starting Brittany Counselling Service and Llanelli Counselling Service, I was a counsellor in a GP Surgery, also the NHS Bereavement Service and later as Co-ordinator for the Swansea Mind Counselling Service.

I use creative techniques based on Adlerian Theory and CBT to help clients overcome their issues, develop self-encouragement and motivation. I focus on looking at how your birth order, early recollections and perceptions growing up affect your coping strategies and patterns of behaviour in adulthood. This understanding can help you find better ways of dealing with difficult situations.

Until the Coronavirus is over, for your safety and my own this has to be via telephone or Zoom

About me and my therapy practice

Over the past ten years of working in mental health I have supported numerous clients struggling with hoarding disorder or chronically disorganised homes. As a result I have developed my two hour CPD "Small Steps Hoarding Awareness Workshops for professionals." I deliver this training across Wales to numerous local authorities, Social Workers, Environmental Officers, Housing Associations, Emergency Service personnel, counsellors and support workers. Over 120 people have attended so far and the  feedback has been excellent. Please note this training is not aimed at service users but at professionals wishing to understand the causes, issues and to gain new skills when working with such clients or interested in this topic. At present this course is only available via Zoom either as in house training  or my own events when advertised. Tickets cost £30 per person are available on Eventbrite or by emailing me for the link .

What I can help with

Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Loss, Personal development
