I have been working as an Integrative Psychotherapist since 1990 and a Couple Psychotherapist since 2004. I also did a psychosexual training and have been working to help couples and individuals with their sexual relationship. I work both cognitive behaviourally and analytically and find this works very well in helping people with their self esteem and assertiveness, particularly with communication in relationships. I begin with an initial consultation to find out if we can work well together and then set up a weekly meeting at a mutually convenient time. The sessions will be confidential unless there is a legal issue.
