Professional Profile:

Relationships of all kinds, with our family members, friends and romantic partners are at the heart of our lives. They can be the wellspring of meaning, give us joy and support, satisfaction, and happiness, but when they go wrong, they can cause us much angst and pain. 

I am a qualified relationship counsellor and psychotherapist, working with adult couples and individuals of all backgrounds. I work in a psychodynamic way, meaning I consider how our emotional responses to current experiences and challenges are shaped by our past, especially our experiences of relating to others. This approach can help to illuminate the roots of our emotional struggles, break unhelpful patterns and lead to a greater understanding of ourselves. 

I offer an empathic, supportive, and thoughtful space in which we can explore the difficulties you have been experiencing. Couples and individuals seek therapy for a variety of reasons: to help with communication, to work through an issue they are grappling with, to navigate a challenging life stage or a change in circumstances. Sometimes there has been a betrayal that is a struggle to understand or get past, and sometimes a couple wishes to separate and need help to think carefully how to manage this. 

Starting therapy can feel daunting. To ease the worry, I recommend we have an initial meeting to explore your hopes for therapy. This will be an opportunity for you to ask me any questions you may have, for me to find out a little about you, and for us to see if we can work well together before committing to regular weekly sessions.

Relationship and Couple Therapy

Sometimes relationships may undergo periods of stress and it may feel as if they are a source of unhappiness or confusion. Relationship counselling helps couples and individuals explore problematic patterns that may be affecting their quality of life. The problem may be recurring or after an event or series of events.

We work with a wide range of couples from different cultural backgrounds and sexual orientations

Psychosexual Therapy

Psychosexual therapy is an integrative approach which combines talking therapy with behavioural therapy. It can take place on an individual basis or with a partner. It will involve an assessment of the sexual issue (including any associated medical factors) whilst exploring further how the relationship, sexual development and personal history may be affecting the sexual issue. Behavioural exercises may be discussed in the sessions, which will then be carried out at home to help the individual or couple address their sexual difficulties.
