Affordable counselling & psychotherapy in Cardiff

Counselling and therapy can help when we're struggling with strong feelings like fear, anger or grief, or we're stuck in a situation that seems hopeless, or we realise that we keep doing the same thing and it isn't doing us any good.

What to expect when you get in touch

I realise that it can be difficult to take a step into therapy, so I offer an initial 30 minute online or phone session free of charge, so that we can get a sense of each other, and so that you can ask questions you may have about therapy.


As a Gestalt therapist, I am committed to working with you to examine what feels difficult in your life and supporting you to find greater satisfaction, choice and possibility.

​We may explore your present-day life situations and relationships, as well as those in the past, and also your here-and-now experiences in the moment with me.
