About me and my therapy practice

Certified as an Emotionally Focused Therapist I specialise in working with couples.  Passionately committed to EFT as a strongly evidence based treatment model, this way of working allows me to move deeply into the complex and distressing issues which couples face as they struggle to find the meaning and joy they long for together.  I engage with couples in their distressing experiences working within and between them to enable them to forge close, safe and secure loving bonds.  

Practice description

Please see my practice website as above for further information I offer an initial introductory session, then daytime and early evening appointments.  I welcome everyone, whatever your age, gender or sexual orientation. 

My first session

The introductory session is £25, chargeable once clients decide to commit to Emotionally Focused Therapy with me.

Normally I carry out an assessment in the first session, followed by two individual sessions during  which I gather client's attachment histories. 

From the very beginning I join clients where they are in a person centred way working in stage 1 of the process towards de-escalation of a negative interactive cycle.  Once a couple are de-escalated we move into stage 2 where the work is emotionally deeper.  Each couple are unique in the time it takes them to complete the EFT process.  I do not take sides and do not provide solutions.  I work as a process consultant helping clients to access their hurts from deep personal raw spots, then share heart to heart conversations which draws them closer, creating the  safe connections they long for.
