Couples' / relationship counselling:
I'm a Certified Emotionally Focused Couples' Therapist with extensive experience of couples' counselling within the NHS and private sector.
I'm a member of the British Emotionally Focused Therapy Centre (BEFT Centre) and proud to be listed as a therapist and member of the International Centre of Excellence For Emotionally Focused Therapy.
I practice Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy because I find that it works.
In my 18 years of being a therapist I have never experienced such fast and profound recovery in my couples as I do now using Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.
A substantial body of research outlining the effectiveness of this therapy exists. It is now considered one of the most (if not the most) empirically validated forms of couples therapy.
To find out more see our British Centre website: www.beftcentre.org
Weekend and evening sessions are available.
Face-to-face or Zoom sessions.
What happens in Couples' Counselling?
I'll meet you online, and will help you to explore your difficulties, and gain an understanding of how you want your relationship to be, with a particular emphasis on identifying and changing the negative cycles that can be so painful and distressing. I'll then suggest that we meet for one individual session each, early on in the process, in order to obtain a more detailed picture of each of your histories and concerns.
After identifying the repeating patterns of behavior that cause distress in your relationship, I'll help you to develop new ways of communicating and relating to each other. I'll work with both partners to provide a safe and supportive space where difficult issues such as affairs and other major challenges can be explored.
I'm trained to have a clear and flexible map of how to help you move towards a safe, strong and loving relationship, and will guide and support you through this process.
The goal is to help you to re-discover the feelings that attracted you to one another in the first place and help you to restore a safe and mutually supportive bond between you.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
