I aim to help bring about understanding and eventual healing through the provision of support in a safe and confidential environment, where we can explore known themes, along with thoughts and feelings which are perhaps more unconscious.
I will act as an impartial outsider. My techniques will facilitate discussion between you and your partner and my aim is to also help you both identify any triggers or patterns that are causing problems in your relationship.
