Couple's Counselling and Family Relationships

My work with couples and family relationships holds the same approach – a safe environment where all parties are respected and encouraged to work towards better relationships. Couples/family members come to me with all sorts of problems; mainly due to a breakdown of communication and repeated patterns of stuckness, with the same outcome (arguments, unresolved issues, silence) and the need for someone else to help the couple/family relationship find a way forward, listening to all parties desired outcomes for change. This work is more directive, yet still remains focused in listening and encouraging in a non-judgemental and compassionate approach.

Counselling and Therapy for Individuals

Counselling offers a different form of helping; a non-judgmental response – counselling encourages you to work through painful feelings, to grow in self-understanding and confidence, or to explore and develop ways forward by looking at your options and coping better. My approach to counselling is integrative, fundamentally built on the humanistic approach. I work in a person-centred way, which means that you are at the heart of the session. My aim is to provide an environment where your thoughts and feelings are given the time and space to be voiced, heard, processed, and overcome.


I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling Supervision (BACP Endorsed). I am a registered accredited member of BACP, and I work within a Code of Ethics and Standards. I offer supervision to all helping professionals - private & organisations, & reflective practice groups - available face-to-face or online. My supervision practice offers a safe and confidential space to share client work and feel supported in your practice, working with the individual need and the level of experience of the supervisee in each session. Good supervision is important; it should be ethical, authentic, and supportive - active, enlightening, and spontaneous: trusting the process and gaining more self-awareness through reflective practice. An introductory meeting for 1 hour is advisable to ensure we can establish a healthy professional relationship and both feel comfortable to work with the other.
