Counselling offers you the opportunity to meet face to face with a trained professional to explore your problems or issues.
As a counsellor I am trained and experienced in different types of therapy.
I am a qualified counsellor and have qualifications in Level 3 Counselling diploma and Level 4 Counselling and CBT diploma.
I have also completed a Diploma in Schema Therapy.
I will work with you in a bespoke way as all clients are individuals, so I do not offer a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
What can I help with?
I can offer face to face or online counselling for individuals from Bridgend and the surrounding areas to help with a range of issues.
Common problems can include:
Stress / Work based stress
Low self esteem
Which therapies do you use?
Your sessions provide you with a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment where you can work at your own pace. Counselling can help you explore, clarify and understand your problems and issues and it can help you reach a deeper understanding of yourself. Working with your counsellor can help resolve emotional problems or relationship difficulties and can help you reach your goals.
We provide a range of different therapies which include:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
CBT is widely used by the NHS. CBT is a talking therapy, it focuses on the here and now rather than looking back at past life events. It helps people to look at things differently and gives you the tools to manage your emotions. CBT looks at your thoughts and behaviours and aims to teach you skills that you can apply to your every day life. We will set achievable goals that we will work together to achieve. This is generally a short term intervention but can be used in combination with other types of counselling if you would like to gain a deeper understanding of your current problems.
The aim of schema therapy is to help the individual recognize their behavior, understand the underlying cause(s), and change their thoughts and behaviors so that they’re better able to cope with relationship challenges or emotions in healthy, productive ways. Schema therapy combines elements of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), psychoanalysis, Gestalt therapy, and related approaches. Though it is a relatively new therapeutic modality, small studies conducted so far suggest that schema therapy can be effective, especially for individuals with personality disorders.
