About me and my therapy practice

In response to the current COVID-19 situation in the UK, I am offering online (zoom or skype) and telephone sessions to all current and new clients to ensure therapy can continue uninterrupted.

I am a BACP registered Counsellor working in South Wales.

I have experience across a range of issues, including anxiety disorders and depression, trauma and abuse, grief, relationship and marital difficulties, some eating disorders and long term low self-esteem.

My model of therapy is ‘relational’, with the central focus on the therapeutic relationship and how it can help heal emotional traumas.  I have trained in all the three main schools of therapy; psychodynamic, person centred and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and completed a number of workshops and educational courses on other approaches such as acceptance commitment therapy, solution focused therapy and transactional analysis (see continuous professional training below).  I do not offer a pure model of working, but instead work in an integrative way, bringing in different models depending on the client's needs. 

I have a particular interest in the healing power of nature, and finding nature-based sources of self-healing, whether that is ‘forest bathing’, natural environmental sounds, bird watching, or any other kind of activity that allows people to connect with nature in a more meaningful way.

Taking the first step

If you are considering therapy, the first step is to make an initial enquiry.  I am always open to answer any questions you may have about the process, or about me as a therapist.

I am warm, empathetic and always work in a collaborative way with my clients.  If you feel comfortable about working with me, we can book an initial session and see how it goes.  There’s no commitment to stay – the direction and duration of your therapy is in your hands.

About me and my therapy practice

As a supervisor, my aim is to help supervisee's explore their client work at a deeper level, engaging both cognitive and creative thinking processes. Supervision is all about finding a place to bring curiosity, issues and concerns, into a safe environment, and to leave feeling supported, enriched, resourced and restored. Key to this is developing your own reflective practice, based on the key tenets of the BACP ethical framework, and to build your confidence as a practitioner.

Supervision sessions are structured around Page and Wosket's (2015) cyclical model of exploration;

- contracting how we are going to work together,

- identifying the focus,

- allowing space to explore,

- bringing in a 'bridge' between learning and application,

- and reviewing if all needs have been met.

Within this model, sessions can focus on various different aspects of the work with the use of the Seven Eyed Model (Hawkins, 2011);

- the client

- strategies and interventions

- relationship between client and supervisee

- the supervisee' process

- the supervisory relationship

- the supervisor's process

- and finally, the wider context of the work.

Individual supervision is £50 for an hour.

Group supervision sessions of 2 hours can be arranged on request, at the reduced cost of £25 per hour, per individual (groups of 3-4).

Clients I work with

Adults, Groups, Trainee
