Specialising in Relationship Issues

Whether you are trying to rebuild you relationship or rediscover who you are within that relationship – couple therapy can help you towards a positive outcome. Relationship problems are among the most stressful and painful experiences you will ever live through – I will provide clear and concise strategies for communication with your partner and assisting each person to understand the other.


Counselling & Assistance

  • Identifying concerns and understanding how they are affecting your life
  • Exploring possibilities or new ways to deal with the concerns
  • Recognising negative patterns and cycles and establishing ways of changing these
  • Developing strategies for improving your relationships
  • Recognising and acting on goals, hopes and dreams that you hold for your future
  • Developing your strengths or discovering your passion so you can live a life with meaning and purpose

Seeking help is a strength and usually means you are ready and willing to tackle the issues that are currently affecting your life. You may be struggling with experiences from your past, or needing help with something that has happened recently. Whatever the issue, counselling can be a way of helping you reach a positive outcome so you can feel better about life, relationships, or work problems.


All enquires will be treated with complete privacy so you can be assured of confidentiality and professionalism.
