About me and my therapy practice

I am a very experienced counsellor/psychotherapist who specialises in working with couples at all stages of their relationship. I offer Relationship Counselling which provides help for couples who are experiencing difficulties, whether arising from the relationship itself, or from other external factors. Couples are encouraged to explore their problems in a safe, impartial conversation, to improve understanding of why these problems are occurring, and how to make changes.

If you are parents who are arguing a lot, your children will be aware these tensions; ultimately they too will benefit from your counselling. I also offer Separating Parents sessions to help couples who have decided to end their relationship. During this difficult transition, which will be painful for you all, decisions need to be taken about how to tell the children, who moves out and when, what arrangements will be made for your children to see you both, as well as helping your children with their fears. Several sessions with an experienced couples counsellor can help you to negotiate some of these issues; you may be signposted to other sources of support.

I worked for Relate for 10 years as a senior couples counsellor, family counsellor, psychosexual therapist and young persons' counsellor. I have been working in private practice for 6 years.

I am also a Family Mediator, helping separating couples to make their own decisions about family, finance and property arrangements.
