"You're not stuck.   You're just committed to certain patterns of behaviour because they helped you in the past.   Now those behaviours have become more harmful than helpful.   The reason you can't move forward is because you keep applying an old formula to a new level in your life.   Change the formula and get a different result.

What To Expect

My beliefs and what's on offer

If you are reading this because you realise you want to make things better in a relationship in your life, congratulations!   Congratulations for having the courage to admit that this relationship needs some work, there are aspects of it that are not working as well as you would like, and you need help.
Relationship therapy and counselling is not a "quick fix"!   To create true closeness with those you love, sustaining trust, passion and authenticity, work is required.   This work is not a "one off" but a daily commitment to improving the relationship and one that needs you to take risks.  
It may be you are no longer a couple but need some help creating a co-parenting relationship that works because you have children in common.   I offer couples, parenting and individual therapy to support you as you find your way through what is not always an easy path.  
For professionals I offer supervision, consultation and coaching.  
My goal is to help you achieve your goals.   We will explore how our brain and mind work together in the service of survival and connection.    Through gaining clarity about your situation and learning more about yourself it is my hope you will experience more fulfilment and joyful aliveness in your relationships, personal or otherwise.
I am currently only working online due to the Covid 19 pandemic, but this is constantly under review to take account of the changes in infection rates and advice. Session costs can be found on the respective pages.  
I offer a discount of 10% (off the full fee) if 6 or more sessions are booked and paid for in advance following the initial appointment.
