I work both with individuals and couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim to help you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.
I have a great wealth of experience working with adults of all ages offering both counselling and psychotherapy.

Couples and Relationships
I am an experienced couples and relationship counsellor having trained with Relate in 2008.
Couple counselling can help you understand your own couple dynamic and identify the areas where you are stuck. Communication is a common difficulty and counselling can help overcome barriers and find new ways of re-connecting.
