About me

I am a Qualified Relationship/Couples Counsellor trained at the Institute of Psychosynthesis, with a further Couples Therapy qualification from the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE) and I am additionally certified in Couples Therapy with Emotionally Focussed Therapy (EFT). I am registered with the main accrediting body UKCP. My work draws on Psychodynamic, Attachment, Systemic, Humanist, Transpersonal and Mindfulness traditions as well as the more recent findings in the field of neuroscience, trauma and bodywork.

Your introductory first session is half-price.

Couples Counselling

There are times when the problems in your relationship become too much and you may feel stuck as a couple - distrust has replaced intimacy and you don't know how to re-connect with your partner. As a relationship counsellor I do not take sides, but I help both partners to share difficult and often painful feelings in a safe and respectful setting. I will help you to develop skills and awareness so that you can resolve areas of conflict and find greater love and harmony between you.

What should I expect?

The sessions are your space: I listen to you and offer feedback, insights and ideas. Your session can be an hour or an hour and a half, and, is at the same time every week. We normally work for 4 sessions and then have a discussion to find out whether you think the therapy is going to be helpful to you. I will indicate roughly how long you may need in order to feel the benefits in your life although it is your decision when you are ready to leave.


I am an accredited mindfulness meditation teacher and have been teaching meditation for over 30 years. I teach a simple meditation / relaxation technique to help give your mind a rest from anxious and repetitive thoughts. This can be very helpful in reducing stress, anxiety and depression.
