As a qualified, experienced relationship specialist, I help couples; families and individuals manage and enhance their relationships by improving communication and by helping them develop a better appreciation of their own and others’ relationship needs.

When facing relationship problems and crises, I work with my clients to resolve ongoing conflict, reach important decisions, and importantly; make desired changes.

Life can throw up problems that can affect even the strongest of relationships, often causing communication to breakdown just at a time when it is needed most. Working together, I support my clients in maintaining or developing a healthy relationship while these other problems are overcome.

I have an MA in Relationship Therapy and a Certificate in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I’m an experienced Relate counsellor. I am also qualified in Couple Therapy for Depression working with IAPT (NHS) clients.

I am an integrative therapist in that I work both systemically with the familial, cultural and social circumstances of how problems emerge and how we communicate in relationships, and psycho-dynamically to identify some of the unconscious drivers that may be affecting how we form and maintain relationships, and how we face problems more generally. I work collaboratively with my clients and can work both on a short-term and long-term basis dependant on their needs. My role is to actively enable my clients to realise self- knowledge and their own expertise to help solve problems. I work to the ethical framework of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and Association of Family Therapy (AFT).


My 1-hour sessions cost £60.
