Are you feeling uncertain and fearful about the future? Do you feel stuck? Anxious?Angry? Hopeless? Depressed ? Are you unable to sleep at night? Are you coping in ways that are harming you, your mind, your body, your family, your future or your finances? These coping methods can often be driven by negative emotions and toxic thinking patterns.I listen without judgement, in complete confidence and safety. I use an integrative, person centred approach, utilising wisdom from a number of schools of psychotherapy and counselling, including transactional analysis,brief solution focused, psychodynamic and behavioural ideas including DBT.

My specialities are: Bereavement/Grief, Anxiety, Depression , Substances, and relationships (individuals only).
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.

I specialise in anxiety, depression and gender & sexuality.
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.

I am an experienced Humanistic counsellor and am passionate about the positive changes therapy can bring. Sometimes our lives become overwhelming, complicated and confusing and problems get bottled up. A skilled listener can help you explore your thoughts, behaviours and emotions to help gain understanding, insight and clarity. This can lead to more positive choices, renewed resilience and feeling more in control again. I believe that the counsellor/client relationship is at the heart of successful therapy, so I aim to establish a warm, trusting, safe and non-judgemental space where you feel confident to express your concerns.

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.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression counsellors in Bridgend. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
