About me

Screen%20Shot%202015-01-22%20at%2012.03.Your Need

Do you find it difficult to communicate any more?
Do you argue constantly but don’t know why?
Do you feel alone in the relationship?
Do you feel that you no longer have anything in common with your partner?
Do you feel that you are drifting apart?
Do you feel that you and your partner do not understand each others needs?

It is very difficult to clearly evaluate what is going on when you are part of the relationship that you want to change. Talking to a professional counsellor can help you to identify the underlying issues are, what it is that you need and what is the way forward.

I help people who are experiencing relationship difficulties, whether it be with their partner, children, family members or work colleagues. I can help you develop better, stronger and more positive relationships.

I am an experienced relationship counsellor, psychotherapist, trainer, facilitator and life coach. I am a member of UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy).

I believe that my combination of counselling and organisational experience in human resources have given me a useful and unique insight into relationships at work.

So, why not call me on the number above, for an informal chat in the first instance, or visit my website.

My Approach

Success in counselling usually comes when clients are helped to develop for themselves possible options for moving forward rather than being told what they should do. As it’s my belief that the client not only has the problem but also holds the solution, clients get the results they want and that work for them.

My approach will be to actively listen to you, without being judgemental, and encourage you to talk freely about your thoughts and feelings. I will feed my responses back to you, raising your awareness of your situation. It is through this awareness that you will more clearly see the choices you have and be able to identify more readily a possible solution, or way forward, that feels right for you.

People at first can be uncomfortable with the thought that they need counselling. So, you are not alone if you feel like this. But, it is very difficult to clearly evaluate what is going on in your life when you are part of the problem you want to solve and talking to a professional counsellor can help you find a solution to your problem.
