About Me

After training as a Movement Psychotherapist I delved once again into personal therapy as I felt that I needed to work with anyone regardless of their diagnosis or life experience. This internal training has seen me transform into the therapist I am today able to offer a high quality service and commitment to your well-being wherever you are in your life today. I am registered with the National Counselling Society (NCS) and The Association of Dance Movement Psychotherapists UK (ADMPUK), am fully insured and am delighted to offer a safe place for talking through your concerns, your thoughts and feelings, the difficulties you may experience and the challenges you are facing. Sometimes we cannot find words to express how it is we are feeling and so I can work with you creatively.
In working with you as a Couple I can help you grow, connect deeper and develop. If you don’t know which way to turn, this can be the ‘helping ground’ for making that important decision together.
I am the Therapy Director at the Old Post Office Art and Therapy centre in Blaenavon and as well work from my home in Risca. I have a strong passion for helping you and am a warm and honest, empathic person.
