I specialise in counselling Children and Young People and I also work for a Charity counselling survivors of rape and sexual abuse .
If you (or your child) are seeking support to overcome some challenges in your life, counselling is a great way to explore your difficulties in a safe and non-judgmental space. A key part of the counselling process is the therapeutic relationship and I believe that due to my age this allows me to support you in greater ways. I empathise and understand the anxieties and pressures put on you by school/exams/university, the impact that growing up with social media and having an online persona can have on your self-esteem, how delicate family/friend relationships can be and the difficulties they can put onto you.

I help people to overcome their past, so that they can embrace their future. So often, the things we are struggling with in life, can be linked back to our early life experiences or difficult life events, which can have a huge impact on how we feel about ourselves, our relationships with others and our overall well being. My goal is to help my clients understand and make sense of their past experiences and explore how their current difficulties may fit into this. I help them to learn new skills and break old patterns so that they can reclaim the life that they want.

I work in a person-centred manner which means that I value building a positive relationship with clients; working to create a safe and comfortable therapeutic environment. This means that I want you to feel able to talk and express yourself about anything that may be troubling you. We talk about whatever you chose, and you can do so without fear of judgement. This enables you to become more comfortable with things as you discuss your thoughts freely, giving you an opportunity to consider things from different perspectives and over time building your confidence to explore different options and possibilities that are open to you.

Making sense of life can be challenging at times. We might find ourselves contemplating if we are causing ourselves unnecessary unhappiness, or if this is just the way things are? Or, wondering if I should just keep sticking at 'it', or is it time for things to change? We might question if our feelings are important? (They might overwhelm us!) Or should I just listen to my thoughts instead? Should we try to forget about the past, or is it helpful to understand it? Might we be living our lives in 'survival mode' when we could be 'thriving' instead?

I understand how you may be feeling.

Newid pronounced "Nowed" is Welsh for change. I chose this name not only to reflect my heritage but also to reflect that change is the only constant in life. We all travel with it, yet all our experiences can be profoundly different. I believe that counselling is a collaborative process in which we work together on what you want to change or explore in a safe non-judgemental environment. I offer an integrative approach where we work side-by-side to understand your past and help you discover new ways of coping and moving forward. I recognise that courage is not fearless and making the 1st step can be challenging in it's self.

Is life feeling overwhelming? Are you suffering with anxiety or low self-worth?Have you recently been through a significant change or something traumatic? We can’t always prepare ourselves for what life throws at us, so if theres something you’ve been struggling with or something you’d like the be different, it’s the perfect place to explore this. In my time in practice I have specialised in working with people in distress because of bereavement, trauma and anxiety. I work with adults and young people and have a wealth of experience in helping people through loss and significant life changes.

I work with depression, anxiety and with people who have experienced control, manipulation and abuse in their lives. Feeling low, stressed and anxious can impact hugely how we manage our day to day tasks. Often leads to isolation from friends and family, because we feel that people don't understand what we are going through. In fact, we often don't understand what we are feeling and why we feel so low or anxious. Being with someone controlling feels like 'walking on eggshells' -not knowing what to expect next. You doubt and question yourself in many ways.

Sexual Abuse Counsellors

How do therapists treat sexual abuse?

A good therapist will be nonjudgmental and possibly demonstrate active listening, repeating back what the client says to show that they have understood. These skills allow people to feel comfortable discussing their traumatic experiences openly. Some important treatment goals are to restore a sense of safety and to rebuild confidence. In addition to working one-on-one with the patient, a therapist might bring in supportive family members to assist the client.

Do you have to talk extensively about sexual abuse in therapy?

Survivors frequently find it difficult to describe what happened to them out loud. They can even still be in a state of denial if the sexual abuse occurred recently. It is important for survivors to acknowledge that what happened isn’t their fault and to challenge and reappraise any unhealthy feelings or thoughts as they arise. Art therapy and play therapy are useful non-verbal means of communication for some survivors.

How long does treatment for sexual abuse take?

Recovery from sexual abuse can be a long and difficult process. Some survivors are able to move on naturally on their own, given time, while others require the guidance of a trained therapist. Therapy needs vary and can range from a few sessions to months or even years. Healing from sexual abuse takes time, and everyone’s journey will look a little different.

Can trauma symptoms caused by sexual abuse come back after treatment?

As occurs in many cases of trauma, survivors of sexual abuse may experience PTSD-like symptoms long after the abuse has ceased or after an initial round of treatment has occurred. In such a case, there is evidence that prolonged exposure therapy is a useful treatment for survivors, and may be more efficacious than supportive counseling alone. While triggers may continue to cause distress, the idea is that, with time and repeated exposure, their power will fade, allowing survivors to move on with their lives.
