About me and my therapy practice

Through my training at Relate I have gained vital skills and specialist knowledge in helping couples on their journey of personal growth and development.

I offer my clients a powerful and successful approach to fixing their relationship struggles. I am an experienced couple’s counsellor who has worked with many different couples over the past 10 years. I combine my counselling skills with coaching work in order to facilitate the best possible outcome. I have a passion for helping couples to bring effective communication back into their relationship, so that they can feel heard and understood within the partnership. I see clients from a quiet and relaxed counselling room in Bath in the heart of the city centre, or via zoom.

Prior to counselling, you may have worried about bringing up a sensitive subject with your partner, or your conversations may have felt like they were going round and round in circles, with a building sense of frustration, but after attending counselling you will feel that disagreements can be talked through effectively with empathy and understanding.

I can support couples who have experienced affairs, both emotional and physical. I can help with couples who feel the romance is dead, or who have different sexual needs within the relationship. Sometimes one person’s way of connecting sexually is different to the other individual’s needs, and I can help you to mutually connect on an intimate level. 

Couples may argue constantly without really knowing why the arguments escalate every time; and my role is to enable them to understand why this is happening and where the dynamic may originate from in their childhood. I also look into the different ways people show love, and how important it is to have space from each other in a relationship. Couples with children can experience problems when they have opposing views on child rearing and parenting can trigger significant anger and frustration towards each other.
