About me

I am a Relate trained Couples Counsellor and Psychosexual Therapist, holding BACP accreditation and membership of the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists.

I specialise in working with couples and individuals to improve all aspects of their relationships, including addressing communication issues, family issues and how to manage anxiety and depression within the couple relationship.  I offer a warm, compassionate and collaborative experience of counselling.

My practice includes working with couples and individuals who are experiencing sexual difficulties.  Clients from any diversity are welcomed.
