Are you finding it hard to communicate, to resolve differences with your partner, your kids or other family members? I help individuals, couples and families to improve connection with each other, and learn ways of working through conflict. I provide a space for you to talk through past grief or trauma that may be getting in the way of creating the relationships you long to have. When you visit - this is your space; a nurturing, non-judgemental and confidential space. Counselling can reduce the distress, whatever the outcome. If you decide to separate, counselling can equip you to do this agreeably, and to parent cooperatively.
The tools and techniques I will provide you with to improve your relationships are tools I have been perfecting in my career over many years to help people just like you. My goal for you is to have practical strategies you can use at any time, no matter what is going on in your relationship. I am direct, solution-focussed, and collaborative in my approach.
I believe that any relationship has the potential for transformation and positive change. I have witnessed powerful healing and growth when people feel safe to be vulnerable with their loved ones and speak from the heart, with the confidence that they will be truly heard and understood. If you're fed up with the status quo and are ready to grow, contact me.
