Working with Couples
Where you have ....
A space to be able to talk and to feel heard.
A space to put aside all the everyday calls on both of your time and energy.
A place to build supportive relationships that can boost self love, confidence and creativity
A space to discuss past, painful events in the present or worries about the future, stopping you from enjoying life
You May be Experiencing
Feeling unable to cope, depressed, anxious, alone and challenged by life's circumstances.
Being unable to work, socialise or achieve our goals.
A need to improve communication.
A life so busy 'we' have got lost.
Time for Us, Time for Me
"We deserve so much more than what we are going through."
"We are worth so much more than the negative messages we hear all the time. It’s draining when all we want to feel is excited, energised and alive!"
To have a different outcome.
"We need to create some space. A space where we can explore all we are experiencing."
"We need someone to talk to."
The Therapeutic Space
You are giving yourselves the time to explore what is going on and find your path.
Using the time in your own way and at your own pace to examine those areas causing you both concern.
My role is assisting you in finding your own answers and solutions that are unique to you and your experience, to realise your own potentiality.
My Initial Consultation is Always Free So You Feel Welcome & Able to Make a Choice
It is an opportunity for you to meet me. For me to go through my client contract and hopefully assist you in your decision making.
I charge £50 an hour for individuals. When I am counselling couples the fees are a little more. I also offer some discounted sessions, contact me for more details
Let's Talk About You

Your space to explore and discuss what's going on for you.
You might be feeling anxious and vulnerable, wondering where this journey may take you.
It may all feel 'too late, it's unfixable.' ...
The idea of talking to someone may feel silly or pointless.
It's broken and no amount of talking can fix it..
A Therapeutic Space
Who are you?
Who have you become?
How did you get here?
What would you like to change?
What would it look like?
Where do you go from here?
Our relationship is founded on unconditional positive regard, empathy and genuineness.
Underpinned by the belief we are the sum of our experiences and predispositions on all levels.
When enabled and empowered we experience growth, maturity and self-actualisation.
