When people start being in a relationship with each other, they often develop a belief that they must handle all they encounter alone.
I offer Counselling and Psychotherapy in Fulham and Putney to couples in a marriage or any close relationship. With Individual and Couple therapy I will support you to make sense of the problems and challenges that inevitably occur during a relationship lifetime and to make positive changes.
I offer assistance in facilitating a respecting communication between you both, where you can together share your thoughts, feelings and experiences to establish common ground; this process holds the potential to transform challenges moving your relationship into a better and more fulfilling place.
I work in Fulham and Putney with couples who are: married, in a civil partnership, cohabiting or not, LGBT, heterosexual, in a partnership or co-parenting. I offer therapy to help to improve communication to people who are closely related.
At times couples seeking therapy are concerned that their relationship is beyond help, communication might have broken down, trust might be eroded and sex might also be almost nonexistent.

I view couples therapy as interactive, reflective and involved.
