“The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.”
― C.G. Jung
Relationships are central to our wellbeing and sense of personal fulfilment. At their core is communication. As a psychotherapist and coach with more than 15 years of experience specialising in relationships, I see my role as opening up conversations about matters that clients find too difficult to deal with by themselves.
In my practice, I talk with people in partnerships of all types and at all stages: from the start of a romance, to couples seeking a mid-life MOT, to partners navigating separation and divorce.
I work with clients grappling with issues like affairs, sexual disconnection, loss, lifestyle transition and ill health, as well as behaviours that are associated with autistic spectrum and other co-morbid conditions. My focus is on equipping people with the insight to meet the challenges they face, rather than ‘curing’ their problems.
I hold sessions with individuals, couples and groups, face-to-face and over Skype, and facilitate trainings. My approach is flexible and tailored to clients’ specific needs and circumstances. We decide together the best way forward during our initial consultation (see FAQs).
As a relationship therapist, I work with clients to identify and meet specific relationship goals over both short and longer periods of time. People interested in deep work to unearth entrenched patterns will benefit from a more psychotherapeutic approach, whilst work on behavioural dynamics and pattens can benefit from a more short-term, goal-focused approach.
My practical experience is extensive. I am a founder member of Reframe Counselling in Canary Wharf and Mayfair, and the Relationship Clinic Sussex, based in Brighton.
Since obtaining an MSc in Psychosexual Therapy and an Individual and Couple Relationship Diploma from the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships in London, I have continued learning. Through collaboration with colleagues in the UK and US, I continue to accrue new skills. And I am currently creating training modules for other counsellors and psychotherapists.
My professional memberships include COSRT (accredited), College of Sexual and Relationship Therapist, BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), and UKCP (UK Council of Psychotherapy).
