My specialty is LGBT Couple & Group Relationships. People seek more than a general counselling ally for their most precious partnerships, and with 21+ years of expertise, I provide the trust and alliance sought. We'll delve deeper into the relationship issues. We'll learn new information, devise strategies for resolving conflicts, and deal with the stress or upset that changes invite. We'll work hard to make me redundant (seriously!) so you can go it alone together when ready. There is no minimum or maximum number of sessions, and each weekly session will be taken one at a time. **BEST TO USE MY WEBSITE'S OWN CONTACT FORM**
