About me and my therapy practice

I offer a safe, supportive space for Individuals & Couples to talk confidentially about issues that are troubling or causing them pain & distress.  It’s not always easy to talk openly & honestly about difficult issues, my aim is to offer a warm, trusting & respectful relationship which enables this to happen.  Within our counselling relationship we build a framework in which you can begin to feel empowered & in turn helps you to change, grow, heal & regain control of your life & relationships.

The core model I work with is the Humanistic Counselling Model/Person Centred and into this I integrate ACT (Acceptance & Committment Therapy), CFT (Compassion Focused Therapy) & Chairwork.

For Couples my core model of working is Systemic & Psychodynamic, into which I also integrate ACT as appropriate.  I work with divorce, separation, affairs, step-family impact, impact of life changes, difficulties with effective communication & couples looking to separate or end their relationship.
