I currently work for a local drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre supporting clients in the Gwent area. This has given me extensive knowledge of numerous counselling issues including addiction, anger management, bereavement, depression, eating disorders, anxiety, OCD, stress and relationship issues.

In my capacity working within the Private Healthcare sector I have worked with some of the UK’s most prevalent bariatric surgeons. My first hand knowledge of Gastric Band and Gastric Bypass surgery means that I can offer empathy and true understanding to anyone thinking of having these procedures. This can be an extremely emotional and confusing time where by counselling can offer you some clarity and peace of mind, allowing you to make an informed decision.
