Relationships can sometimes be difficult and even painful, whether we are currently in one, have recently left one, or are alone and longing to be part of a couple. I specialise in helping people with relationship issues as they affect both individuals and couples. Having qualified in Couples and Individual Psychotherapy with the world-renowned Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships in London, I have specialised skills in counselling couples in distress, who have reached a crisis point in their relationship, who feel stuck, who are considering separating or are going through a separation, or who just want to make things better.
I am also a qualified psychosexual therapist, which means I have specialist knowledge and skills in helping individuals and couples with sexual difficulties.
Going to counselling can be a daunting prospect, and even more so if you are considering coming as a couple. You may worry that the counsellor will take sides, that you will not be understood, or that your partner will misrepresent you. As a specially trained and experienced couples counsellor, I understand your concerns. You can be assured that I will be able to provide a supportive, neutral environment in which it becomes possible to think and communicate in ways you may find it difficult to do on your own at the moment.
If you want to have counselling as an individual, you will find me a warm, supportive and insightful therapist who will gently challenge you to reach a deeper understanding of yourself, and support you as you take more responsibility for your happiness.
Please feel free to contact me by email, after which we will agree a mutually convenient time for a phone call to briefly discuss your current issues and the help I can offer. If this seems like the right kind of support for you, we will arrange to meet face-to-face for an initial consultation session, after which you can decide whether to continue with regular sessions. Sessions will take place once a week and can go on for as short or as long a time as you need.
