Counselling for personal fulfilment in relationships, work and life.
I work with couples and individuals who are experiencing difficulties with their relationships.
My focus in therapy is on relationships; both the relationship we have with ourselves and how that in turn impacts on relationships we have with others. I works with clients to gain a deeper understanding of their patterns and scripts and to explore the potential for deeper fulfilment and if desired, change. Some of the difficulties I work with include; separation and loss, divorce, bereavement; family related issues; work related problems and low self worth.
I work with couples and family members caring for a loved one suffering with mental health issues.
I have therapy rooms in central Richmond, where I provide a confidential, non-judgemental space to explore with my clients any difficulties that they are facing. I also work with individuals, couples and families at Relate in Richmond and The Wimbledon Guild.
I am a member of BACP and AFT.
