What Type Of Therapy Do You Practise:
Counselling for Couples and Individuals

I Specialise In:

I particularly specialise in communication and intimacy/sexual issues and ADHD in adult relationships.

I also work with individual issues like depression, loss, anxiety and trauma.

I am passionate about supporting people to have the best relationships they can possibly have. I believe contented relationships grow contented families, communities and even countries!!

Wherever you are in your relationship – newly together, in partnership for years, or single and finding difficulties with relating – I can help you.

How Exactly Does Your Therapy Work?:

My style, as an Encounter Based couple therapist, is to help you engage with each other from your feelings via words and physical contact. I will always respect your needs and pacing and listen fully to you both.

I may ask you to dialogue with one another or take you through an exercise. As I coach and support you in this process, you become skilled at listening to each other deeply and more able to express your feelings and own your particular patterns. I often give you structures and styles of connecting to engage in together from one session to the next.

I am warm, supportive, lively and active, which means I am totally with you and your well-being, as individuals and as a couple, enabling you to have the best depth of connection possible. I am aware of all aspects of your relationship: emotional, practical and physical since they are all linked.

What kinds of symptoms have people who seek your services usually presenting with:

Almost anything to do with relationships from sex/intimacy issues to communication difficulties to “ He/she’s had an affair.” I am also very familiar with working with couples where one has ADHD, depression or anxiety.
