Therapy during Covid-19:
I appreciate this is a stressful time for many given the current challenges we are facing and the speed of which some of these changes are happening. In light of the most recent announcement and the level 4 restrictions I am no longer in a position to offer face to face therapy sessions for the foreseeable future.
To that end I will be available to offer sessions remotely via Zoom. While I appreciate it does feel different, it can still provide a good medium to continue working together. If you wish to initially trial this option and see how well it works for you in practice I would be very happy to do so. Please feel free to contact me at any time.
Keep safe and well
I work as a Relationship Therapist with couples and individuals, supporting them to find their way through life’s challenges and the difficulties they face in relationships. I assist clients to develop their goals for therapy; find long-term solutions to their problems and explore new possibilities as they move into preferred ways of being. By employing a variety of approaches I help people re-engage and connect with each other, improve their communication skills, develop emotional and sexual intimacy, repair relationship hurts and build stronger more sustainable relationships.
What you can expect:
A collaborative, relational and solution focused approach, guided by the principals of Narrative Therapy and implementing the Bader Pearson Developmental Model of Couple Therapy providing a proven methodology for effective interpersonal development.
I am passionate about relationship therapy and will provide a safe environment for you to talk about your situation; support your understanding of the issues you face and find meaning and hope in your experience.
