About me

I am a qualified and experienced Relationship Psychotherapist. I specialise in helping individuals (younger and older adults), couples, families and LGBT working to improve their relationships. I conduct a confidential practice adhering to guidelines governed by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).

If you are struggling with a difficult relationship, or your relationship is impacting on other areas of your life, I can provide a non-judgemental, supportive and safe environment to explore ways of improving relationships in order to enhance your well being. The first step would be to contact me so we can set up an initial appointment. During this appointment we will discuss what you would like to get out of the sessions. If you decide you would like to book a further appointment then we can arrange this on a weekly or fortnightly basis.

Accessing therapy can be challenging and frightening, however, it can also be motivational, empowering and exciting. You can attend the sessions on your own, with your partner, or other family member(s).

My Psychotherapy training involved studying different systemic theories and psychodynamic ideas. I use collective skills, experience and expertise to work with the issues you bring. My approach is collaborative which means I work with you, and together we aim to find a solution which works well with your personal model.

If you feel communication has broken down in your relationship, you or your partner is having an affair, you feel trapped and unsure how to instigate change, your personal relationship is impacting on work life or friendships, or your relationship is in jeopardy because of other influences and behaviours, then relationship Psychotherapy can help clarify thoughts and behaviours to enable positive change to happen.
