I am a Couple and Individual Psychotherapist with 20yrs experience.
Given the current situation with COVID-19, my practice is now online. I am working with both couples and individuals on Skype, Zoom and FaceTime. A weekly session gives clients the opportunity to address their understandable anxieties and concerns at this challenging and unprecedented time.
I work with couples at all stages in their relationship and I'm used to working with a wide range of difficulties, including communication issues, trust issues, sexual difficulty, children and family issues, depression/anxiety, infidelity, addiction etc.
On the whole most of us would like a meaningful, safe and rewarding relationship with a partner. This is often difficult to achieve and some insight and understanding as to what is being experienced in the couple dynamic is helpful.
I also have a lot of experience working with individuals on a once weekly basis for both short-term and long-term work. Developing a trusting and confidential relationship with the individual is paramount in order to explore difficulties which hopefully leads to greater self-awareness and psychic health.
