About me

Do you suffer from anxiety or stress? Have an addiction? Feel worried about relationship issues? Perhaps you have depression or a general anxiety disorder? Suffer with phobias?  I can help. I work with individuals, couples, families and children. I am a Psychotherapist and Relationship /Family Therapist. I also provide individual and group Hypnotherapy. I have more than 20 years experience in counselling helping with many areas including separation and divorce, the aftermath of an affair, abuse and postnatal depression also the affects of cancer and long term illness. More recently internet use and sex addiction.

Your relationship is special; one of the most important emotional investments you make in your life time. Your relationship is likely to influence and effect how you feel in each day, how you work and think; how you love and are loved. It is the basis for future generations, your children's security depends on it.

Most relational problems can be resolved within conversation however many couples lose their way then misunderstandings or resentment start to linger preventing any improvement or closeness. I can help.

When a family is troubled with problems so is every individual involved. Life can seem hard work for all, conversation may become fraught with anger. Perhaps some of you split then side with others, making home life seem like a war zone.

Are your family arguments making you stuck? Perhaps you have a troubled child.

Maybe you are overwhelmed and do not know how to tackle this any more? Are your children caught up in your conflict?

Do you have step-family frustrations? Out of control toddler tantrums or eating & sleeping problems?

Perhaps your new partner is not settling in the family? Are children or teenagers running your life?

Has your divorce has affected everyone in the family? Maybe there are cultural differences that seem too difficult to cope with

Perhaps you don't see enough of your children but would like to?

Is there one person in the family who seems to be angry or upset? One person you find it a strain to be with these days?
