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, Psychotherapist and Life Coach 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.
