About me and my therapy practice

I am a Relate-trained relationship counsellor. I work part-time at Relate Avon and have a private practice in Clifton, Bristol. I work exclusively with couples.

Practice description

Couples come for counselling for a wide variety of reasons. It can be a great opportunity to explore what is or is not happening in your relationship and to make changes that lead to your couple life being both happier and healthier. Some couples come for counselling because there has been some kind of crisis and there might be doubt, for one or both members of the couple, as to whether the relationship is sustainable at all. 

My aim as a counsellor is to create a safe and supportive environment where you will feel secure and confident to express your thoughts and feelings as openly and honestly as possible.

My first session

In the Initial Consultation (£20 - please allow one hour), my aim will be to understand as fully as possible the reasons why you are seeking couples counselling and what you want to get out of the process. You will get the chance to get to know me a little and ask any questions you may have about possible future counselling sessions.
