You are probably feeling very upset, alone and confused, maybe even ashamed and wondering if counselling could help? Everyone who comes to therapy has a unique set of issues but the underlying need to share the distress and be understood, is true for everyone. If you are struggling with parenting, postnatal depression, miscarriage or your identity as a woman you are not alone. I have lots of experience working with women (and men) who are struggling with family life and want to feel better than they currently do. I also help young people with identity and self esteem issues, self harm, anxiety and sad feelings

I specialise in working on all kinds of relationship issues either on your own or as a couple but also offer Psycho Sexual Therapy as a second year Tavistock trainee; both on-line and in person at clinics in Cardiff & Chepstow. I act as a highly confidential guide through present struggles that may be dividing your relationship. Whether on your own or as a couple, changing whatever is keeping you emotionally distant and possibly sexually disconnected from partners is a crucial goal. The complexity of maintaining intimacy or experiencing betrayal or simply feeling distant from the other, all can be easier with professional support.

I am a qualified Therapist with over 6 years of experience working within the substance misuse & mental health sector. The key to my work with clients is the belief that, through a psychotherapeutic relationship, we can gain insights into our patterns of behaviour. Working relationally, we can explore the possibility of change and begin to think of alternative positions that can move towards a more compassionate, and fulfilled version of ourselves. As I am currently in full training as a Transactional Analyst, I'm offering a reduced rate to clients seeking Psychotherapy.

Counselling and psychotherapy can help you to become more aware of your patterns, defence mechanisms and resistance. This can allow more spaciousness through, for you to be who you are. Coming into relationship with yourself at depth, without judgment but with curiosity, can help you to stay and enquire into your feelings and notice where you might feel stuck and what you might be avoiding.Change can come if we give ourselves room and space and allow our emotional distress and difficulty to surface, just as it is. The more we can name and be with our difficulties, the more we can move into our awareness of these difficulties.

Our relationships are fundamental to our lives, whether that’s with our family, friends or colleagues. They can bring us comfort and also anguish. I believe in three things: 1 - That our relationships can be key to a leading a fulfilling life. 2 - That where we come from informs who we are, but does not necessarily determine where we end up. 3 - That we each need to express who we are without fear of judgement. I will work with you, using the counselling relationship to mirror important relationships in your life, so that we can more easily see patterns of behaviour that no longer serve you.

What informs my practice is a concern for respecting and valuing difference and the importance of caring communication in all relationships. We work together to bring about your own awareness of what needs to change in order move on in your life. Sometimes we are overwhelmed at what is happening to us, or we feel we have no control over our own lives. We can explore new ways of understanding ourselves and our relationships so that we can influence or even change our future.

Often in life we get stuck in patterns which, though once useful ways of being and relating, have now outgrown their usefulness to us, perhaps beginning to get in our way even. Psychotherapy can offer both the space to express, grasp and understand these patterns and then the support and challenge to grow in ways which seem right for you. I am currently seeing clients in person or online. I draw on a range of sources to bring my curiosity to meet you as a whole person. I am interested in your thoughts, feelings, your actions and what may be going on in your body as well as what may emerge in the here and now of our relationship.

Do you need a safe confidential place to speak openly, with someone neutral and non-judgemental? You may be looking to make some changes, or have a dilemma to talk through. Maybe you've lost a loved one or pet, feel isolated or stressed, or have a problem that's preventing you from moving forward. I work to understand things from your viewpoint, and to build a trusting therapeutic relationship where you feel comfortable enough to be yourself. I listen, understand, accept, and believe, and appreciate that talking about feelings is difficult. Being interactive means that you'll get much more than 'hmms' and 'uh-huhs' from me.

Available Weekends. I like to work with a variety of clients, focusing on their relationship with whatever has brought them to therapy, whether it be anxiety, past trauma, alcohol or family. With the knowledge that change can happen at any time, we work towards where the client wants to be in there life. The more open and honest the client is, the more work we can complete together.

The experience of counselling is different for different people depending on your issues and where you are currently in your life. It may be that you need a few sessions to help with a current situation or problem or it may be a longer journey of self discovery and uncovering past hurts so that you can make sense of them and move on. Every client I have worked with has been different and rather than looking at labels I tend to focus on problems and solutions. I am experienced in working with a wide variety of issues both short term and long term.

Counselling provides a safe space to explore your thoughts, feelings & behaviours in order to challenge what is unhelpful to you & to then support you to learn new coping strategies so that you can move forward. The work we do together can enable you to enhance your wellbeing and think about your relationships & how you contribute to them. In this space you can begin to understand your past experiences & how they link to present day anxieties.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Wales are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Wales then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Wales, or Child Psychologists in Wales.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Wales psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Wales specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
