I am a Systemic Psychotherapist, Trainer and UK network registered Mindfulness Teacher. I live and work in Cardiff and provide:

Welcome to this page, I would like to introduce myself to you. In the early 90s I trained as a counsellor and then as a Systemic and Family Psychotherapist. Since then I have practiced and taught counselling and psychotherapy for over 25 years. My practice has evolved as has the field of psychotherapy over these years. My approach is integrative and includes and is influenced by evidence-based approaches that focus on resources and strengths. Often people come to me to work with issues of self-esteem, depression and anxiety, relational conflict, identity and trauma, and loss and grief. I offer a warm, supportive, and encouraging space to help you reach your goals.
As well as working in my private practice, I have been involved particularly in the past on working with refugee communities and for over 20 years in mental health for students in Higher Education and with people working in the performing arts. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
