I am a fully qualified NCS accredited Integrative Counsellor and fully Qualified Hypnotherapist registered with the National Hypnotherapy Society working in private practice in the beautiful seaside village of Borth near Aberystwyth. I have experience of working with stress, anxiety, depression, grief and bereavement, relationships, coping skills, weight loss, fears and phobias, motivation, addiction, life transitions, emotional disturbance and I can help with any emotional problem that is causing you difficulty in your life. I can also offer sessions internationally over WhatsApp via video or on the phone.
Being located in Borth means I am out of the way of the busy town of Aberystwyth and if you need some time out after your therapy before returning to the outside world you can relax on the beach for a short while to gather your thoughts. I also have car parking onsite.
My practice draws on my intuition whilst working from an integrative approach to meet the individual needs of each client. I work with counselling or hypnotherapy as standalone therapies or I combine hypnotherapy and counselling together to suit each individual client. If the session has been particularly difficult I can even offer 10 minutes of free Reiki to help you face the outside world once again.
I work with clients both short term and long term and I have been a Bereavement Volunteer for Cruse since October 2018.
I work from a non judgemental, compassionate place that helps my clients identify their inner processes in a confidential, safe environment so clients can explore themselves to achieve balance and calm in their lives.
I abide by the HS and the NCS strict code of ethics and take personal development seriously. I have undergone many hours of personal therapy so am aware of my own inner processes and have regular supervision. I am fully insured and I am continuously looking for training to meet continued professional development.

Why choose me?
I am a fully qualified counsellor and hypnotherapist and unlike the NHS there are no waiting times. I will see you within a week of your initial enquiry. I offer a respectful and confidential service. Being an integrative counsellor means I can draw on my knowledge of psychodynamic theory so you can understand how the past is influencing present behaviour. Gestalt helps you understand your present, helping you to better understand your life in this present moment. Transactional Analysis will help you to understand your ego state which will help you with social transactions and help you to understand your own behaviour, but person centred is at the core of my work with clients. I use my knowledge of CBT where this is appropriate and combine these counselling theories with hypnotherapy to help you, the client become the best you can be.
Reiki is healing in its truest sense. It is a healing system that is a safe, natural and holistic way of treating many acute and chronic conditions and bringing about spiritual, mental and emotional wellbeing. Reiki may be effective with physical, emotional, psychological and behavioural problems helping to bring relief from the effects of pain and suffering. Reiki is suitable for everyone including the very young and the elderly. It is also a great tonic if you are in good health as it will help you stay that way!
When a Reiki practitioner channels this life energy through their hands to the recipient, it activates the body’s natural ability to heal itself. The recipient lies on a treatment table fully clothed and the practitioner lay’s their hands in a series of hand positions on the head, torso, legs and arms sometimes hovering rather than touching. Each hand position is held for a few minutes whilst energy called “chi” is channelled through the practitioner into the recipient. Some clients feel deep relaxation, heat from the practitioner’s hands and possibly experience tingling or floating. Everyone is different. Reiki works effectively alongside orthodox healthcare and natural remedies, expanding your treatment options.
