I am a relationship counsellor who works with both individuals and couples.
I often work with couples who want to improve their relationship. This could be those who want to stay together as well as those who want to manage their separation or divorce in the most thoughtful way, including doing their best for any children. Individuals too may be having troubles in their personal life or experiencing pressure at work. Whatever the circumstance, I firmly believe that it’s best to talk.
I use an integrative counselling approach. This draws on different therapeutic styles, including emotionally focused therapy (EFT), so I can use whichever is best for you. The therapeutic relationship we build is at the heart of this.
Aside from counselling, I have a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and a master’s degree in modern English literature. Before I became a therapist I was a commissioning editor at The Times and before that a secondary school teacher in England and the Far East.
