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 always keep in mind and respect how hard it might be opening up to a third person about a private matter within a relationship. I also acknowledge the pain and confusion that brings a couple to make this step.

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 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.

Initially it is most effective to have 6 sessions, we have an initial session together and then we have a session each individually, the first three sessions are information gathering as well as counselling work. We then come back together to work through helpful tools for communication and best ways forward for you both. We can evaluate (after the sixth session) how we all think therapy is going and to consider what is needed moving forward.

I work from the Practice Rooms in central Bath and Bristol, the rooms offer a quiet and peaceful environment for clients to feel safe and relaxed in.

Feel free to call me on 07846477726 to book a session

I am more than happy for you to call for a free brief consultation to see how you feel working with me.

My first session

It's not easy reaching out to a therapist you do not know; I have been on my own personal journey, so I know how it feels. Together let's guide you through your challenges and help you get back on track. 

When looking at some of these issues, we may explore the following features which contribute to the unhappiness within the relationship:

• How our childhoods impact our relationships with each other

• How experiences in previous romantic relationships affect our current relationship

• How we may trigger each other unintentionally causing friction between us

• How we may avoid or distance ourselves from our partner to protect ourselves from getting hurt

• How we may use passive aggressive ways of communicating which may cause the other person to react

• How me may project our past experiences in relationships onto our current partner

• How we may be afraid of expressing our needs




What I can help with

Abuse, ADD / ADHD, Addictions, Anxiety, Child related issues, Chronic fatigue syndrome / ME, Depression, Development coaching, Eating disorders, Infertility, Life coaching, Obsessions, OCD, Personal development, Phobias, Post-traumatic stress, Pregnancy related issues, Relationships, Self-harm, Sex-related issues, Trauma

Types of therapy

Emotionally focused therapy, Family therapy, Humanistic, Integrative, Person centred, Psychodynamic, Relational, Solution focused brief therapy, Transactional analysis

Clients I work with

Adults, Couples

How I deliver therapy

Long-term face-to-face work, Online counselling, Short-term face-to-face work, Telephone counselling, Time-limited
