Working with couples, families and individuals, especially those who are wanting better relationships, or to recover from relational trauma.
How I work with my clients
My counselling is client focused (what my clients want, and who they are, is at the centre of my work with them), integrated (I put together a mix of effective therapies that best suit my clients), systemic (understanding people are not islands, those you live with, grew up with, etc really do matter, they affect you, and you them), attachment based (the idea that our need to feel safe and secure with those closest to us really, really matters, without it we are in distress, which explains a lot!) and trauma informed (I engages with my clients in a way that has been proven to increase their sense of safety and empowerment, this is especially important if you have experienced trauma).
I have done extensive studies, focusing on how relationships work and how they can be improved and restored. My studies have included Emotionally Focused Therapy training.
I specialise in working with couples who are struggling with issues, such as - poor communication, unfaithfulness, conflict, relationship dissatisfaction, addiction etc.
I am an accredited CCAA Supervisor, and enjoy supporting other practitioners to grow in their therapeutic practice.
