Welcome. I offer safe, professional and confidential psychotherapy and counselling in Swansea. I hope you find the support you are looking for here.
You may have been thinking about psychotherapy or counselling for a long time - or need support with a recent life crisis. It can be difficult to know what to look for - or how to check a therapist or counsellor has the experience and qualifications to help you. Whatever has brought you this far, I hope this site will give you enough useful information to help you.
I am an accredited UKCP Integrative Psychotherapist, and a senior accredited member of the National Counselling Society. You can find me on both organisation websites & their two National Standards registers. I have worked in the fields of wellbeing and mental health for over twenty five years. I have worked effectively with people who have a wide range of life problems and diagnosis including (for example) stress, anxiety, panic disorder, O.C.D, depression, self harm, body dysmorphia, dissociative identity disorder, eating disorders, post-traumatic conditions, personality adaptation and relationship difficulties.
From March 2020 I moved my entire practice online with Zoom due to Covid-19. I added an online training to my skillset and was astounded over the following months to discover that it works very well for many clients. If you are willing to try this modality let me know. I recommend being open-minded - as the pandemic invited us all to be, ready or not! If the experience shows that therapy online is not for you I can try to refer you to a therapist taking face to face clients. My practice is centrally located in Swansea, within easy reach of Port Talbot, Carmarthen, Ammanford, Bridgend and Neath - I also offer psychotherapy in Bishopston, South Gower. Of course, now I am online I have widened my practice across the UK
I hold full insurance and provide psychotherapy & counselling within the UKCP code of Ethics.
You are welcome to phone or email me to find out more about whether I can offer you the kind of help you are looking for. I believe there is no substitute for meeting to discover whether we may be a good 'fit'. We will arrange initial meeting to decide whether we can work together successfully on the issues you want to explore or whether a referral elsewhere might be more appropriate.
