About me

I am a specialist Couple and Family Psychotherapist with over 20 years experience of therapy for couples, adults in relationship, and families. Currently I am able to offer online couple and adult relationship therapy sessions.

Key to the way I work is helping adults whether in a monogamous or open relationship to foster a more fulfilling relationship by:-

  • Learning how to do more of what is helpful and less of what is unhelpful for their relationship
  • Developing skills in effective communication
  • Understanding how to successfully navigate their conflicts and dilemmas.

I provide a safe, non-blaming, and non-judgemental space for adults in relationship to work through their problems, dilemmas and hopes.

When it comes to making important decisions such as deciding whether to stay together or separate, I have no agenda other than to be as useful as I can be in enabling my clients to better understand themselves, their situation, and their possibilities. This provides clients with insight and a guide for making their own important decisions.

I have experience in working with heterosexual and LGBTQIA+ adults who are experiencing:-

  • Ongoing and unresolved conflicts
  • Difficulties in communication
  • Impact of one partner suffering from depression/other mental health issues
  • Considering separation and/or divorce
  • Issues around anger, abuse and/or violence in the relationship
  • Challenges of having different backgrounds/cultures
  • Sexual tensions/difficulties
  • Moving on from infidelity
  • Demands of new baby/extended family/step-children on the couple relationship
  • Navigating consensual non-manogamy

Alongside my private practice I have worked for the NHS in adult mental health services and have many years experience of working with adult relationships and families where a partner or other family member has experienced, or is experiencing mental health difficulties such as depression or psychosis.
