Having worked for 30 years with families, couples and individuals I have valuable work and life experience to enhance opportunities within others.
As the seasons change maybe you are looking for changes? Maybe struggling to see why your partner thinks the way they do, or sad the relationship has ended? Curious if you/they can change?
You can hear that others manage their life style but recognise that depression looms in your life?
Work a challenge, looking for more? Sad about the lack of intimacy?
Do you want more in your life… or maybe there are other questions?
I have a passion to see our lives bring about change, and find new ways of embracing life.
I work with couples and individuals, currently work for Relate alongside working privately. Working individually and with couples I also work with intimacy issues related to sexual issues. I work for Relate (10 years), Mind with IAPT clients (3 Years). I am trained in CBT, qualified & experienced in couple counselling, psychosexual therapy and work with individuals, families and young people.
Having been a CEO for over 15 years I am aware of the challenges of stress, and trained in management of conflict and stress advising. Also as a qualified Mediator (FMCA) I am mindful of the impact of relationship breakdown
I live approximately 3 minutes’ walk from Goodmayes Station, which is on the Stratford/Liverpool street line, therefore my location is accessible.
I am on the Accredited Register of the Professional Standards Authority, registered with COSRT an accredited member of ACC, and on the Relate Practitioners central register.
