About me and my therapy practice

I specialise In helping couples and individuals to explore long standing problems in their life.  I am a relationship counsellor and psychotherapist in private practice.

My clients come to see me because they are distressed about recurring problems in their life and relationships. They want help with their distress, to be heard, understood and supported to make changes toward a more satisfying life and stronger relationships.

Types of problems I help clients with:

Relationship difficulties with a partner, friend or family member; help to understand and repair what is going wrong in a relationship, finding ways of building stronger partnerships, friendships and family connections.

Difficulty forming or maintaining satisfying relationships; Identifying unhelpful patterns and ways of coping that can disrupt relationships
