I am a Relate trained relationship therapist with over 22 years of counselling experience. I specialise in both couple and individual counselling. I have regularly featured on BBC radio talking about my approach to Relationship counselling, answering questions from listeners and speaking on various topics.
The counselling process is about change and how you would like your relationship to look moving forward. You are the one that holds all the answers and counselling is an effective way of helping you get to them. This is where exploration and understanding is vital to be able to make the changes you need to get the outcome you desire.
I believe that all potential clients should get an insight into how my sessions are run. I offer a free 20 minute phone consultation which gives you the opportunity to tell me a little bit about your situation and ask any questions you might have about the counselling process. Please contact me via the details below or visit my website to book in a consultation.
Common issues I deal with
Feeling unsure about how to improve or save your relationship is a common place to be when people embark on counselling. My approach offers the couple, or individual client, the opportunity to explore options. The counselling process gives clients the chance to make the changes needed to move forward in a happier and more fulfilling way. A safe and comfortable environment is provided in which to discuss the difficulties you are facing.
Communication issues, sexual problems, emotional issues, affairs or historical challenges from one’s past can often feel difficult to talk about; the counselling process creates a safe environment to ease this. At home it may feel like you are going around in circles and neither feels their needs are being met or that they are heard. Counselling offers a space for everyone’s point of view to be aired.
A large number of my clients come for counselling on their own. Many people have issues they would like to work on alone, some may be on the verge of separating or are already separated or divorced. Other times their partner doesn’t want to come to counselling and this should never be a reason not go ahead on your own.
Individual counselling is also a very effective way of working through the grief and loss of any relationship whether it be a spouse, a loved one or a family member.
All types of counselling sessions are one hour long. Payment is taken via bank transfer prior to each session starting. If you need to cancel a session please let me know within 24 hours of your session to avoid any additional charges.
Price per session: £60
