I am a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) based in Swansea, South Wales. I trained to be a therapist after volunteering with the Samaritans. I realised how many people are struggling and battling through everyday life. My previous experience includes working in corporate stress management, NHS Primary Care and IESO the online digital healthcare, a service offered by the IAPT, England.
Before retraining as a therapist I had a long career working in the countryside sector. My roles involved engaging people in the countryside using events, volunteering opportunities and educational activities. My experiences of working with a wide variety of people in this way first sparked my interest in mental health and benefits of being in the outdoors. Without exception, during my 20 year career I saw an improvement in the mood of every person I worked with in the outdoors.
I am passionate about providing a caring, meaningful and robust therapy that combines the practicality of CBT with harmony that is achieved from being in nature. I am naturally empathic, practical and down to earth, this comes across in my therapy to provide a safe and caring environment with an emphasis on helping you to achieve your goals.
I am a registered member of the BACP and work in accordance with the BABCP code of conduct. I offer both face to face and online therapy using Skype. Find out a little more about CBT and Ecotherapy or contact me for more information.
I am passionate about helping people to overcome their problems and lead a more fulfilling life.
