Psychotherapy/counselling offers an opportunity to explore your experience of life with somebody trained and experienced in facilitating people in their search for more satisfying ways of living.

The reasons people come to counselling or psychotherapy are as varied as people themselves. Some people seek counselling to help them explore a general feeling that their lives are not quite right, or to deal with feelings of depression or anxiety, or a lack of meaning in their lives. Others may have experienced distressing or stressful experiences or situations such as bereavement, separation, other major life transitions or confusing or painful childhood experiences, which they would like to talk about in a safe setting.

Counselling  can provide the support needed to find ways of making meaningful and positive changes in ones life.

I offer relationship counselling to opposite and same sex people in relationships who want to resolve difficulties and move forward constructively. I am familiar, comfortable and experienced working with people in kink and/or poly relationships who are wanting to have a space to discuss and resolve difficulties.
