Professional Profile

I am a senior couple therapist working in private practice and as a visiting clinician at Tavistock Relationships. I have extensive experience with both heterosexual and same-sex couples. I offer therapy in English or German.

Couple counselling can help with looking more critically at how you interact with your partner and how this affects you both. Links can be made with previous experiences and insights into patterns of behaviour are gained. Relationship therapy looks towards making lasting changes and to achieve more fulfilling ways of relating. It can open up new ways of thinking about each other and the relationship, with improved communication and understanding as a result.

Areas I work with include:

- communication difficulties 
- feeling stuck with patterns of behaviour 
- not getting on
- arguments and disagreements
- affairs
- becoming parents
- other major life events

- high conflict couples who struggle to understand their partner’s feelings and reactions
- couples who are separating or divorcing
- parenting, particularly the impact of children on parents

I offer relationship counselling, couples’ counselling as well as counselling for individuals who want to explore past and current relationships, or want help with looking more closely at difficulties with new ones.

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.

Individual counselling is a joint process between a therapist and client. Common goals of therapy may be to motivate change or improve quality of life. Therapy can help people overcome obstacles to emotional and mental well-being.

It can also increase positive feelings, such as compassion and self-esteem. People in therapy can learn healthy skills for managing difficult situations, making positive decisions, and reaching goals.
