About me and my therapy practice


Are you struggling with your relationship at this time due to the Pandemic.

Relationships are complex and are not always easy.  They can at times cause conflict from small arguments to constantly bickering amongst yourselves.  This can leave you feeling frustrated and unhappy.  

Choosing a partner and spending your life is not easy and comes with many ups and down in life.

Have you already tried to resolve your issues, and work together but still feel that your relationship is suffering without external help if so it can be useful to reach out and ask for professional help and this is where I can help you

Together I can help you explore:

-Better communication between both parties.

-Explore differences in perspectives between the both of you on       issues from finances ,work, children, family, sex.  Together we will   explore how to work on these differences effectively.

-Explore issues around intimate elements of your relationship.

-Explore how some external factors could be having and effect on    your relationship.  i.e.. culture beliefs, family values, religion,          lifestyle, different parental styles, trust and jealousy, work                related stress issues, grief and loss, infidelity and so on.

Sometimes couples do not wish to stay together or continue with their relationship and counselling can assist you in working together to explore how to separate amicably and on good terms.
