Deciding to come to therapy or couple counselling can be a daunting experience especially when feeling confused, depressed, anxious or upset. However the experience of talking to an approachable professional can often be a real relief. My aim as a therapist is to provide time and space for those wanting to explore their difficulties within the setting of a therapeutic relationship. By processing painful or traumatic experiences, looking at relationship dynamics, addressing unconscious or limiting aspects of behaviour, potential new ways of coping with life's issues can often be found and concerns resolved.
