I am very experienced in delivering cognitive-behavioural therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy, schema therapy, systemic (family-related) therapy and psychodynamic therapy.
I have 20 years' experience working as a clinical psychologist in the NHS and in private practice since gaining my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. Throughout this time, I have been supporting adults with a very wide range of difficulties. These include anxiety, depression, eating disorders, OCD, trauma, and emotional regulation difficulties (including personality disorders). I welcome clients to my home for therapy sessions and appreciate how important it is for people to feel comfortable and at ease in a homely and supportive place in order to explore and express such personal and challenging issues as can arise during therapy.

Psychodynamic therapy reflects on the past, as well as the present and helps you to see the parts of yourself that are hidden from yourself, so that you can gain better understanding and insight.
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

As a psychodynamic psychotherapist I look towards the past to make connections with the present.
I am a qualified psychotherapist. My practise offers a safe, supportive and confidential space for clients who work within the music and entertainment industries. Alongside my practise I work in the music industry so I can identify with problems that can arise from these areas which I've found to be both helpful and supportive to clients. Whilst all may appear great on the outside, I understand how in reality life can feel very lonely in such high pressurised situations for artists and industry professionals and family members of.

I often work with people who want to find a way to let go of the things that are holding them back. They want to feel more like the person they have a sense they could be if only they knew how. They want more authenticity and better relationships - or just to feel okay. Sometimes people have lost touch with their own self-worth. A crisis may have occurred. They may be struggling to feel any hope. Emotions and thoughts may be overwhelming or there can be a sense of numbness. During initial sessions, they might say things like they want to find clarity, feel confident, lighter, less burdened, and have a greater sense of freedom.

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.

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.

I can only imagine how hard it feels to reach out for help for yourself or your child; to want things to feel better and not know how to make it happen. This is what I can help you with. Maybe you or your child feel anxious all the time and just want to feel safe? Or perhaps you can't seem to get rid of that little voice inside that tells you you'll never be good enough? Maybe your child is struggling with understanding themselves and the world around them and you just want them to feel happy and safe? I understand that situations like these can feel overwhelming and I am passionate about helping people overcome them and feel better

Hello, welcome. I can imagine how difficult it must be searching through the profiles trying to find the right therapist. Making the decision to seek help for your child/grandchild is a brave one and sometimes it can be difficult. I have been told by clients that I am calm, warm, welcoming, and approachable; and can put them at ease. I am a Child and Adolescent Therapist who specialises in 7-18 years olds who until recently worked in CAMHS for the NHS for over six years. I decided to work in private practice after seeing so many children whom I could help turned away by CAMHS or who were waiting a long time to get help.

Although older than many, I bring decades of life experience to my counselling. I have experienced most 'rites of passage' and find that my wide experience enables me to work sympathetically and non-judgementally with my clients: there's nothing you can tell me that will shock me! We will work together in a welcoming, confidential environment to enable you to better understand your needs and the options open to you. With my support, you will be able to share your difficulties, worries and fears, developing a greater understanding of yourself, your situation and those long-standing difficulties that you feel you struggle with.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Cardiff, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
