About Me

Hello, welcome to my website Core Conditions Therapy.

Sometimes, looking for a counsellor can be a daunting experience.  You could have lots of questions you need answered about me, before you make a decision on if I am the right person for you.

Please have a look around and see if counselling with me is something you wish to explore further.

So, let me tell you a few things about myself.

I am a friendly, easy-going person, with a good sense of humour.  I pride myself on being able to make my clients feel welcome, comfortable and relaxed.

I am married, with a son, and a crazy dog who I treat as my second child.  I am very close to my extended family and we meet and socialise as much as we can.

I love meeting up with friends and going to the theatre, cinema and for meals.

About Me.

Hello, welcome to my website.

Sometimes, looking for a counsellor can be a daunting experience.  You could have lots of questions you need answered about me, before you make a decision on if I am the right person for you.

Please have a look around and see if counselling with me is something you wish to explore further.

So, let me tell you a few things about myself.

I am a friendly, easy-going person, with a good sense of humour.  I pride myself on being able to make my clients feel welcome, calm and relaxed. 

I am married, with a son, and a crazy dog who I treat as my second child.  I am very close to my extended family and we meet and socialise as much as we can.

I love meeting up with friends and going to the theatre, cinema and for meals.

My Background

My background is 15 years in an Infant’s School.  I was a Well-being Officer for the last eight, working with families with many concerns.  Sometimes people just needed a shoulder to cry on, or simply to talk about what was happening for them.  I was able to support that need and explore with them what they wanted, and how they were going to get it.

During my time there, I trained in counselling, alongside working full time.  It took me 4 years to achieve my diploma qualification, so I know all about working, being a busy mother, and housewife.  I am currently working towards my Level 5 diploma in Trauma.

I have worked for Eye to Eye, and am currently with New Pathways and Mind. My speciality with mental health problems, is trauma and abuse.

I named my business Core Conditions Therapy, because as in Person Centered Therapy, counsellors work with 3 core conditions.

  1.     The first is Empathy, where I will walk with you, and see your life through your eyes.
  2.    The second is congruence, where I will always be my genuine self with you.
  3.    The third being unconditional positive regard, where you will be accepted for who they really are, with no judgement or criticism.

My logo and the colours I have chosen represents tranquility, calm and peace.  This is how I want you to feel whilst browsing.

I want my website to be easy to read, and to be informative without being overwhelming.  I hope you find that here.

My counselling room is based in Pontypridd, but at this present time I am only able to offer telephone and Zoom sessions.
