In addition to a Postgraduate Certificate in Counselling from the University of Oxford I have an MA in Relationship Therapy. I undertook this training with the Relate Institute.
Areas of Specialism
My main focus is on working with couples at any stage in their relationship. Couples might be married or living together or just good friends. I am happy to work with gay and lesbian couples, and also with single people who might have difficulty forming relationships, or with any kind of personal problem.
* I also have specific training and experience of working with clergy of any denomination and their spouses or partners.
Everyone is different and it is important for the counsellor not to adopt a ‘one approach fits all’ style. I try to use an integrative approach, which uses insights and techniques from a variety of schools of thought – systemic, psychodynamic, transactional analysis and so on.
My fundamental principle is to get to know you as an individual or couple and to work with you in a way that is comfortable and appropriate for you at this stage in your life.
