About me

Hello and welcome to my profile

I have always been interested in how the human mind works within relationships and how our past experiences can affect our present life. From a young age I seemed to have had an innate awareness and understanding of people. I am passionate about helping  couples find their way in life. I have a natural ability to help people feel comfortable in my company . I work with many different issues with special interest in stress, burnout, anxiety, depression, Low self esteem, communication breakdown,infidelity and how these play out in relationships. I will help you both find solutions to your issues.

Couples counselling is different to individual counselling because it focuses on the relationship between a couple, rather than the therapist and the individual. It is an opportunity to enhance communication between you both, and to gain a deeper level of understanding as to why dynamics occur and repeat themselves. When two individuals enter a relationship, they carry with them unconscious scripts from their past which can affect their present way of relating. Couples can trigger each other unintentionally and thus arguments may arise.

Over the years I have discovered my passion for couples work and developed very successful strategies which enable couples in crisis to quickly discover how to start healthy communication again. It can help you to gain the critical tools needed to create a long and happy connection.

I can help you to find healthy ways of interacting and getting in touch with your truth within the relationship. As a therapist, my role is to remain neutral, and non-judgemental, with whatever each person may bring. I trained with Relate, where I acquired my Level 5 Diploma in couples counselling, and have helped numerous couples navigate the challenges that a relationship can bring.

I  have two practices: I work from central Bath and central Wokingham, both  in a peaceful and calm environment. I offer an initial free phone conversation to answer any questions you may have, and for you to get a feel for how I work as a therapist.
