About me

I  offer face to face, and online, couple and marriage counselling. I try to be flexible with times, and work most mornings, and three evenings a week. Online couple counselling can be done with the couple in separate locations.

Areas where I can help

Specialising in marriage, couple and relationship issues, I have 37 years counselling experience. Trust, infidelity, communication, conflict, anger, forgiveness, 'active listening', personality types, etc. are just some of the relationship issues I deal with.

Anxiety, depression, anger management and internet issues are also areas where I have a great deal of counselling experience and expertise. 

I came into counselling through working through some of my own issues (true for most counsellors I think) and find I have a real heart to help people out. I enjoy seeing peoples' lives change for the better and when couples have children, I am particularly keen to try and help save the relationship. I integrate different counselling styles, look at personality types and background, give 'homework' if people are agreeable to it and draw on 37 years of extensive experience (including being a G.P.'s counsellor, the BUPA counsellor for the local area,  a Social Services family counsellor and a prison counsellor).


To check out what others have said about me previously, please click through to my own website and look at the many testimonials or look at the 105+ Google Reviews I have and see what others have said about how my counselling has helped them.
