About me

I am an experienced counsellor, having trained with both Relate and Tavistock Relationships (formerly the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships.

I am an accredited member of the BACP and Graduate Member of the Tavistock Institute of Medical Psychology.

I have worked with couples and individuals for over 12 years and been a lecturer and tutor on the Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Couple Counselling at Tavistock Relationships.

Healthy couple relationships have a positive impact on many areas of our lives. Yet pressures of work and lifestyle choices, health issues, unexpected crises, redundancy and retirement, the impact of children or infertility, ageing, bereavement and depression, caring for relatives and financial strains as well as our own personal relationship histories, all affect our ability to keep channels of communication with those closest to us open.  Relationship counselling offers a space for couples and individuals to explore and reflect on patterns of behaviour which may at times feel stuck, causing frustration, disappointment and unhappiness. In a confidential and non-judgemental environment, I work with both couples and individuals to develop and sustain the ability to think about themselves and their relationships and to open up opportunities for communication.
