As a counsellor I work to increase mental wellness and decrease distress for clients who have suffered trauma, grief, loss, adverse childhood experiences, abuse , and work life challenges that can cause distress, suffering, and affect day to day functioning, causing symptoms of depression and anxiety, social withdrawal, loneliness and isolation. Society can cause immense pressure, use of social media, comparing our lives to others, low self-esteem and confidence, negative self talk and intrusive thoughts can become overwhelming. Counselling can support you, help you heal, and provide tools to lead to a more positive outlook on life.

I work with trauma and childhood abuse and many relationship issues.
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.

I also have experience in dealing with narcissistic abuse , Munchausen’s syndrome and Munchausen’s by Proxy.
I have been working with adult individuals in South Wales since 2014. I do not hold any preconceptions and am genuinely interested to meet new clients, to find out more about them and what it is they want to change. I always ask what each person would like to achieve and I regularly re-visit this goal (or goals) to ensure that our counselling will be as helpful as possible. I believe that my clients have the ability to overcome their problems and I invite them to be as open with me as they choose in order to arrive at the best result for them.

I have experience supporting those who were victims of sexual assault, expereinced bullying, neglect, abuse or attachment injuiries as a child.
Are you struggling with something that happened in the past but afraid to bring it up again? Do you find it hard to trust people and develope healthy relationships? Or is that your low self-esteem or anxiety stops you from going after what you really want? Whatever it is, I am here to listen. It's time to stop pretending that everything is okay and figure out what's been holding you back. You don't have to go through this alone anymore. Counselling can be very intimidating, especially when it’s your first time ever or you had previous bad experiences. I can promise you that working with me will feel the furthest from intimidating.

If you have experienced Neglect and Abuse then this leaves emotional and physical scars and I want to let you know that there is hope for healing and that life can be good.
Often people seek Counselling for help with bothersome thoughts, patterns that keep showing in their life whether that be in intimate relationships, work or how they manage day-to-day tasks. Whatever your reasons for seeking help my promise is to offer you my care, confidentiality, warmth and honesty. Many women have experienced really difficult life experiences that they can't put into words. They tell me, “my problems don’t seem valid when there are people dying in the world”, “I just want to know why people don’t treat me well”‘ or “Things just feel off and I am unhappy, can’t put my finger on what’s wrong” etc. Welcome

I have a particular interest in trauma and how it impacts our nervous system: PTSD and C-PTSD, dissociation, hearing voices, addictive behaviours and coping mechanisms and their link to childhood trauma; 'ACE's' (Adverse Childhood Experiences), and how these affect us as adults. Trauma comes in many forms; obvious, overt ones such as physical or sexual abuse , car accidents, war, disasters etc, and also less obvious or covert forms like emotional abuse or neglect, bullying, or just 'not getting what we need' on an emotional level. In addition to being a trainee member of UKCP and BCPC, I have specialist trauma training:

I have trained as an integrative counsellor, and believe that therapy can help us evolve from surviving to thriving. I became a counsellor for many reasons, but fundamentally because of the powerful way in which counselling can help you take back control of your life story; tomorrow does not have to be like yesterday. I can offer you a calm space to explore what feels safe to you until you are ready and I will not make assumptions about the individual struggles you are going through. I work with the full belief that it is possible to find a way through your experiences and re-gain that sense of who you are.

Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.

If you're looking for a Cardiff domestic abuse or domestic violence counsellor, these professionals provide domestic abuse therapy and counselling in Cardiff.
