When we make contact, I will ask you for some preliminary information, discuss my charging structure and arrange to meet with you in a confidential environment.
My charges normally range from £40 to £60 per hour.
The initial session will be an assessment session, where we will discuss your areas of concern, explore relevant background matters and goals for therapy.
After that, if we are happy to work together, we will arrange further meetings - often in blocks of six sessions at weekly intervals. How long therapy lasts will depend on the issues that you wish to bring and how quickly progress is made. However, I recognise the financial constraints clients may be under and will work with you in selecting the areas most likely to result in benefit for you.
I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and I am a registered/accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am also a member of the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies and because of my interest in trauma and PTSD, the UK Psychological Trauma Society. As well as working with clients who refer themselves to me, I provide staff counselling for an academic institution in Cardiff, employee assistance providers, legal firms, health insurance companies and accident management and rehabilitation companies. I work with adult clients on a short or medium term basis.
My practice covers south-east Wales from Bridgend through to Monmouthshire including Cardiff, Caerphilly, Newport and the Valleys.
