I am a highly experienced and qualified relationship counsellor/psychotherapist. Having started work with Relate over 13 years ago, I have also worked in a variety of settings with couples and individuals from diverse backgrounds who have experienced difficulties in their relationships.
I understand how demanding it can be for people to explore their personal situations and that at such times people need to be treated with genuine warmth, compassion and respect, so that they feel safe to seek new ways to address their problems. I believe that the quality of the relationship between client and counsellor is at the heart of successful counselling.
Counselling is a journey of discovery during which you can take a step back and look at life through different lenses. This process gives you a chance to tell your story and be heard in a different way, to identify your needs and find new ways in which to meet them.
I also counsel young people. Adolescents are faced with a wide range of situations which they may struggle with and it can be invaluable to talk with some one outside the family or school environment to think things through differently. In addition I offer family counselling to encourage families to communicate more effectively.
