In every relationship, there are moments when things don't run smoothly. These challenges often arise due to differing expectations within the relationship, external issues, or difficulties in expressing thoughts and emotions. These complications can hinder effective communication and understanding between individuals involved.


I bring a wealth of experience and a track record of success to my work with individuals, couples (both heterosexual and LGBTQ+), families, and organizations grappling with various relationship issues. My commitment to this field is so strong that I have developed Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses to share my insights and knowledge with fellow therapists.

I work with couples whose relationship is struggling unconsciously due to neurodivergency affecting the quality of their communication. I help each to understand this important difference in the relationship, its impact and how to move forward.
