Relationship Counsellor

Services and specialist areas

As a professionally qualified, Relate-trained relationship counsellor with more than 10 years’ experience, I help couples; families and individuals manage and enhance their relationships by improving communication and by helping them develop a better appreciation of their relationship dynamic and needs.

Benefits of my services

  • When facing relationship problems and crises, I work with my clients to resolve ongoing conflict, reach important decisions, and importantly make desired changes
  • Life can throw up problems that can affect even the strongest of relationships, often causing communication to breakdown just at a time when it is needed most. Working together, I support my clients in maintaining or developing a healthy relationship while these other problems are overcome
  • Our relationships with others can tell us so much about ourselves. How we relate to others is an important part of who we are and understanding this is sometimes the key to a better quality of life and a greater sense of wellbeing

  • Relationship and communication breakdown; both couple and family
  • Parenting and the impact on couple relationships
