Couple Counselling

I have trained at several psychotherapy institutes in couple counselling and am in ongoing Continual Professional Development.

Couple counselling offers a space for couples to work through the ways that they relate, so that they can find more fulfilling ways of being together. Couple counselling is a place where issues can be discussed safely and with a focus on creating healthier ways of relating. Issues could include such things as past hurts, issues of poor communication, sexual issues, and other aspects of the relationship that create difficulties.

Initial Contact

When you first contact the service we will discuss over the phone or by email what you would like from counselling. I will ask for basic details regarding the types of issues that you would like to work through. If you would like to use the service we will agree a time and location for an initial assessment.

Initial Assessment

The initial session is an assessment which will take one hour. This time is spent exploring what you both want from counselling. I will take information to help me understand your specific situation and we will all explore how we can best work together.

Following the initial assessment, if you both feel we can work together then we will agree to meet weekly for hour long sessions.

Counselling Sessions

These sessions will be focused on us working through whatever you both feel is most helpful to explore. There may be an element of the two of you exploring issues between sessions so you can best help yourselves to change.


  • Initial Assessment – £45

I am able to accept cash, cheques or BACS. I will invoice you at the end o each month.
