Feel more grounded with therapy and counselling
Whatever your reason for coming to therapy, with the right support, you can grow your capacity to change what you wish to and to find peace and acceptance for that which cannot be changed.
Whether you are experiencing difficulties right now, recognise how your past continues to have a negative impact on your everyday life, or wish to gain more self-awareness and improve your communication skills, I can help you facilitate the change you want.
Reconnect with hope and intimacy
Learn healthier ways of communicating and alternative ways to manage conflict in your closest relationship.
Better communication in itself can offer a sense of relief from recent problems and stuckness.
Relationship therapy offers you a space to explore your issues, where you will both have the opportunity to be truly heard and validated.
