About me

We all struggle with relationships from time to time. Whether it’s a partner relationship or family, siblings or friendships, we will all encounter difficulties at one time. 

However, the most difficult relationship we can encounter is with ourselves, this can lead to anxiety, depression, addictions and other painful responses. 

In my experience, this is usually attached to difficulties in our childhood, and we may need help in unpacking this.

I work with relationships, addictions and childhood difficulties. 

I work with couples and individuals who struggle with their relationships.

I also work with addictions and the trauma behind the addiction and the behaviour around it/them.

In my experience, relationships, divorce, affairs, and addictions are the foremost issues that create some mental health struggles, along with grief and loss.

We may have difficulty expressing feelings, and these feelings can present to us as angry responses, when in fact we may be hurt, sad, or scared.

Anger management is something we can explore, using tools that can lead to a more effective way of communicating what we are feeling. 

I offer therapy to clients to help them arrive at a solution that is appropriate for them.

We will explore relationship problems and past experiences, this will include difficulties we may have with addictions, and explore traumas in childhood that are causing problems in your life today.

Of course, finding someone you can trust and feel secure with who can help us to talk about difficult subjects, subjects we may have never shared with anyone is a daunting task, I hope I provide a safe supported space to be heard and valued for your thoughts, and your feelings, and work with the emotions this may bring.

I work with people who are single or in a relationship.
