Professional Profile:

I am an experienced Couple and Individual Psychotherapist. I completed my training at Tavistock Relationships, an internationally renowned charity for advanced practice, training and research, where I worked as a Senior Clinician and Assessor.

I can help if you find yourself stuck in damaging or repetitive arguments with your partner and help couples better communicate over issues which may be painful, shameful or can cause explosive arguments. I also work with individuals who are perhaps struggling in their relationships or in the aftermath of a relationship ending.

My approach is supportive, empathic and open-minded but I also challenge my clients, for example, by exploring damaging behaviours or patterns and highlighting issues which may have been ignored or avoided.

I have a particular interest in cross-cultural relationships, and have experience working with couples and individuals struggling with issues such as emotional and physical intimacy, changes after the arrival of a new baby, anxiety, depression, trauma, infidelity, parenting, infertility, non-monogamy, ill-health and retirement.

I practise in both English and Spanish.

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.

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.
