About me and my therapy practice
I am a Relate qualified couples’ therapist, experienced in seeing a diverse range of couples and individuals who want to explore relationship and personal issues.
As well as couples, I offer counselling to individuals who need support with issues such as relationships, anxiety, low self-esteem and work/career dilemmas.
Having had a long and varied career in the corporate sector before training to become a therapist, I also offer extended single session counselling for clients with a specific career/work dilemma who want objective support.
Perhaps there may be quiet alarm bells in your head about your current relationship which have been lingering too long but you are afraid to confront. Maybe you feel worn down by a repetitive pattern of arguing, bickering, lack of sex or general disconnection. Or perhaps your relationship simply feels stale and on life support.
If this is the case, I can work with you as a couple – or as an individual - to explore these issues and provide ideas and techniques which can break that pattern and encourage you to re-think your capacity for change. There may be issues you want to explore on your own or as a couple. Perhaps you want some objective support in leaving a relationship or in separating in the best way possible.
I see therapy as a tool-box, not bound to any one theoretical concept: it begins though with a positive regard for all my clients and has to be flexible to meet the individual needs of each person. I take a pragmatic approach and at all times remain non-judgmental. This is particularly important for couples’ work as neutrality and balance are essential for successful outcomes.
I came to counselling late in my career, having previously worked as a journalist, and lecturer before going on to set up and run my own PR company/medical education agency for over 20 years. These previous careers have provided me with a wealth of experience in observation, framing and re-framing stories, quickly grasping individual narratives, patterns of behaviour/conflict and what contributes to them.
