I have extensive therapy experiences in supporting a wide range of challenges and all walks of life. I strive to work with you in a way which ensures that you can completely be 'just you'. You can be comfortable to bring any difficulties and unspoken thoughts and feelings to me, and we together find out 'the why(s)' in your life, relationships and in you. We recognize it is not easy, though I devote to building trust, that you can develop your own voice and resilience. We walk together to put listening, understanding and compassion first, before taking changes which are manageable, realistic and sustainable.

I have over 19 years experience working with people - My clients come to me, when they feel overwhelmed, exhausted and in need of support - they can't manage their thoughts, relationships, behaviours alone any longer and they need someone to talk to in a confidential, non-judgmental way. Together we explore, unpick, understand and make changes, so that life can become more manageable, enjoyable and less exhausting. For me, each of my clients are individuals, and its about getting the right balance - seeing what works and what doesn't work for them, promoting change together.

I understand how difficult it can be to make the first step in asking for support, with this in mind I can provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment in which you can be fully open and honest.

Expecting to have some enjoyment and a sense of fulfilment in life is not a pipe dream – it’s your purpose and your right. If you’re like 99% of others, then you can’t quit your job and travel the world because a quote on social media told you that’s how to be happy. Life is tough, and things often get thrown our way that knock us sideways. You might even be waking up more than you’d care to asking: “what is the point in all this?”. Or maybe you feel stuck in a cycle, struggling to make changes in your life? You're not alone, and you don't have to feel this way.

People access therapy for many different reasons, but generally we are most likely to reach out for help when our usual coping strategies are no longer effective. At these times it is not always helpful or possible to turn to family or friends, and their well-meaning support may not always help. I will provide a calm and confidential space where you will be able to safely share what is troubling you.

Infidelity Counsellors

How does therapy for infidelity work?

A skilled infidelity therapist will provide a safe space for clients to communicate their feelings and concerns. The goal is to be completely honest about what led to the cheating and how it has affected the entire family to prevent it from recurring in the future. The therapist will help the clients work on rebuilding mutual trust and respect and developing better communication and conflict-resolution skills. If the goal is to remain a couple, clients will learn the “danger signs” for their specific relationship, and they will make a renewed commitment to be faithful.

How long does therapy for infidelity take?

Recovery from infidelity can take time, and it can vary from person to person. Generally, a therapist will want to see the clients at least once a week for around six months. Then the sessions can be arranged as needed, depending on the clients’ individual needs. While therapy may end or shift to an as-needed basis, it can take up to two years or more for some clients to fully recover from infidelity.

How does therapy help the partner who was cheated on?

When a client discovers their partner’s infidelity, their trust in the relationship and in the life they had together may be shattered. They often experience mental health symptoms, such as anxiety, depression, grief, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). They don’t always want to stay in the relationship; they may feel ambivalent or may even want to leave. Therapy gives these clients a safe and healthy way to communicate all of their complicated emotions and concerns.

How does therapy help the partner who committed infidelity?

Infidelity often occurs when one or both partners’ emotional needs are not being met in the relationship. Therapy can help this client understand why they cheated and figure out how to address those unmet needs without resorting to infidelity in the future. This can lessen (but not entirely eliminate) the risk of repeated infidelity. Clients who cheat may also feel intense guilt about deceiving their partners, a sentiment that they can work through in therapy.
