I am committed to helping people to build and live in relationships which are safe, nurturing and happy. In my work I pay particular attention to questions of respect and always inquire how power relations between people are expressed and negotiated. I recognise that as people grow and change they sometimes begin to want different things from life. Such transitions can be hard and therapy may help with ideas to work through these difficult times.
I offer counselling and psychotherapy to individuals and couples and families. I have a special interest and extensive experience working with same sex attracted individuals and couples.
