Are you feeling unhappy about your relationship? Are you arguing about the same issues and unable to reach a solution? On average people wait 6 years before seeking help with a relationship problem. The longer a problem persists, the greater the resentment builds towards your partner. •Individual and/or couples counselling to help people manage conflict. •Training in communication skills. •Helping to re-build trust after an affair. •Helping individuals to cope with separation/divorce. •Helping clients who have anxiety, depression or stress. •Helping men who are struggling. •Counselling adult survivors of childhood abuse. • Skype.

Russell is friendly, open-minded, compassionate and an experienced Psychologist. Russell completed Level I, II and III Certification training at The Gottman Institute in Seattle, USA. The Gottman Institute is world-renowned, having conducted intensive, long-term scientific studies into why marriages succeed or fail. Russell works collaboratively with clients
