Felicity Oppe Family/Systemic psychotherapist , CF5
I am a Systemic and Family and Couple psychotherapist who has worked for a large children's charity in the South Wales Valleys as a parent and child and adolescent therapist.
I have an independent practice at my house in Cardiff in a dedicated counselling room. I offer a confidential and safe space for individuals, couples and families to hold conversations about both long term problems and unexpected troubling events.
I have several years experience as an individual counsellor before I trained in family and couple therapy. I understand the need to both be heard and listened to but also the need or desire to effect change.
I work with parents who have experienced traumatic conflict in their separations and divorce and with their children. I also work with families who are experiencing violence and conflict.
I am trained in Non-Violent Resistance and Mindfulness and if these approaches are useful to you we can utilise them in your therapy.
Anxiety and Depression can often accompany other difficulties that individuals, couples and families experience. I aim to offer useful conversations and strategies that can help alleviate both these symptoms.
I am available from Monday to Friday and I offer appointments in the evening up to and including 7pm (except on Fridays).
