Relationship Therapist

I am a Relate trained Counsellor and a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I work with individuals, couples and families to help them overcome some of the relationship difficulties that we all might experience from time to time.

With couples, these difficulties can include rebuilding trust in a relationship, perhaps after an affair or other significant event.  Or we might explore why we might feel 'less-connected' to someone we are close to and work to restore and improve that 'connection'.
Alternatively, we may be unsure about the future of the relationship and want some time & space to explore how we feel, in an environment that feels safe and accepting of what we need to say.

Often, working on how we communicate and what we want to communicate, can make a big difference to a couple, or family relationship.

Sometimes life events - like bereavement, physical, or mental illness can have a profound impact on our relationships with those we are close to, as well as on us as individuals. 
I can work with you to explore these, and other relationship difficulties and help you find a way forward.

Family relationships can also be very complex and just not work in the way we would like.
I can work with you, and members of your family if you wish, to find a way forward.
