Hello, I am a music therapist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), working across North-West Wales and online. My approach to therapy is psychodynamic, Neurodiversity-affirmative and person-centred. I specialise in working with neurodivergent people (with autism, ADHD etc.) and am experienced with working with people of all ages with learning disabilities, dementia, mental health difficulties, experience of trauma or life-limiting illness. Music is a universal language, which can offer a way to communicate beyond words in our sessions, whether instead of or as well as speech.
I don't know what brings you here today but looking for counselling and finding the right therapist takes courage. Life can be hard and asking for support is difficult at times. My goal is to make sure you feel seen and heard. Whatever you are struggling with, whether it is a troubling memory that doesn't seem to leave you alone, a day to day struggle that you feel is holding you back, an experience you're dealing with and didn't think you'd face, or if you're feeling at the end of yourself - talking about these things is a huge step toward resolving your issues and moving to a place of thriving in the life you want to live.
I have gained a distinction in MSc in Counselling and also qualified as an EMDR Therapist (Gold Standard Therapy recognised by: NICE: National Institute of Clinical Excellence). I am an Integrative Therapist which means that I can draw on a range of different approaches to meet my clients particular needs and introduce methods and techniques as clients require. I offer a highly professional service which is underpinned by valid scientific research and practice evidence. I appreciate that accessing therapy can be daunting; therefore, I am welcoming, very accepting and do my best to create a genuinely warm and safe environment.
I am a client-focused psychotherapist highly accomplished in sessional counselling, treatment analysis, and lasting outcomes. I offer a compassionate and comforting approach with a deep understanding of trauma-related issues. I employ Humanist, strength-based approaches to therapy such as Emotionally Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and contemporary Jungian Analytical psychology. I am proficient in individual psychotherapy, couples counselling, group therapy and I specialise in ecotherapy, dream work, and expressive arts as a healing agent.
I have a distinction in MSc Psychotherapeutic counselling and can use this training and my experience over the last 30 years, to help you make the changes you need in your life. You may be anxious, depressed or feel you are not getting the most out of your life. I work with the unconscious through dreams and imagery to help you connect more fully with your authentic self. You may need the convenience of working online or via the telephone (F2F not available). Often my way of working appeals to those who are interested in the arts and/or the spiritual realm.
I am a senior clinical psychologist with 20 years clinical experience. I complete Autism & ADHD assessments (child & adult). I have extensive experience in child development and work with children aged 2-18 years of age, who present with difficulties relating to anxiety, challenging behaviour and learning disabilities. I provide support to parents/carers and use a collaborate approach to look at ways to move forward with understanding and managing their child's difficulties. Following assessment, I can offer a consultation with schools to provide them with a fuller understanding of a child's needs.
I believe wholeheartedly in the effectiveness of talk therapy. The science behind the brain chemistry of the human brain and how it affects our behaviours is noteworthy and interesting. However, it is only part of the story. The use of anti-depressants, and anti-psychotic drugs in more severe cases, can help some people but these chemical interventions treat only the symptoms of depression, anxiety and feeling sad. My way of working together with you goes straight to the source. I validate every part of your experience of being human including body chemistry, behaviours, social dynamics, and if applicable, your spiritual dimension.

As an experienced counsellor, I like to be flexible to my clients needs. Life can be so challenging at times; this is where I can join you in our sessions and seek to understand where you feel you are emotionally, and help you to process the past and re reorientate yourself and get firmly grounded in order to negotiate your next phase of your life. I realise as human beings we often get stuck in patterns of behaviours or feelings which can prevent us from moving on. Exploring these stuck places in the safety of a counselling session can often be the key that can unlock and free us up for new beginnings.

As a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist my main focus is helping clients understand and manage their problems within this framework. CBT is an active therapy, present focused, collaborative and structured allowing the clients to become ‘their own therapist’. This type of therapy empowers the client to take responsibility for their own therapeutic journey, acquiring the skills and techniques to maintain changes made in therapy for the long term. I adhere to the standards of conduct, performance and ethics required by my accrediting body the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).
The ideal client is anyone who has realised the need for support with their mental health. There may be a variety of different needs, goals. There is no one size that fits all, that's why I aspire to tailor everyone's journey as per their specific requirements. I have a rich history of working in mental health which has exposed me to a variety of people and situations. I build on my breadth of knowledge and experience to best serve every client with a tool-kit of evidence based techniques in the safety of therapeutic exchange whilst respecting their confidentiality and boundaries. Please get in touch to discuss things further.
