Based in Pembrokeshire, West Wales, I am a fully qualified Person Centered Counsellor / Psychotherapist. I studied at the University of Chichester in West Sussex and gained my Counselling Certificate and Diploma. I’m a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and work within their professional framework and guidelines. I’m fully insured to practice and also registered with General Data Protection Regulations body.
Previously I worked in the National Health Service for more than 20 years as a Registered Nurse. During my last 10 years of nursing I worked as a Community Nurse and then gained my Degree in Public Health and worked as a Health Visitor. I have extensive experience of working with adults of all ages and have worked closely with older people. I have also worked with complex families and mothers who experience post natal depression and anxiety. I like to work with the Arts in various ways if this interests you. I have a passion for nature and animals.
I am currently working as a trauma informed sessional counsellor with New Pathways in Wales supporting those who have experienced domestic abuse and sexual violence. I also work with families and young people as a sessional counsellor with the charity Barnardo’s.
I absolutely love being a counsellor and working with all kinds of people. I resolutely believe in the counselling process and how it can help us to know ourselves better and grow from this.
