About me

I am an experienced relationship therapist who specialises in working with couples, families and individuals.  Difficulties may be linked to failure to make and sustain partnerships or the loss of the 'spark' in an intimate relationship.  The main problem may be work related stress; a manager, colleagues or workload impacting on family life.  Loss, neglect, physical and mental illness all have an impact Irrespective of the reason relationship issues have a huge impact on our health, happiness and well being. I am able to offer a safe space to explore what is happening now, the impact of past experiences and support to make the necessary changes to enhance current and future relationships.
