About me and my therapy practice
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, substance misuse and addiction, 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). In addition to these models, I use Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT).
As well as counselling, I offer Life Coaching to clients who want to maximise their potential by focusing on personal goals and how to achieve them. My particular model of coaching has been influenced by highly acclaimed life coaches such as Tony Robbins and Curly Martin, and utilises therapeutic understanding of the Psyche to help enhance an individual’s ability to tap into their full potential.
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
Whether you’re looking for counselling or coaching, 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 or coach.
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.
