I have been working with couples for over 10 years and have experience in a wide range of issues.
Relationship difficulties can be hugely distressing, or just constantly draining. I will help you unpack the dynamics of your relationship, without blame or criticism, in order to give the two of you choices that you may have lost sight of. We will look at where you have become stuck in the development of your relationship and find safe ways of breaking down the layers of defensiveness we often build for self protection, in order for you to learn how to ‘lean in’ again.
Taking the first step to finding help can also feel scary. You may fear failure, fear being vulnerable in front of your partner, or simply fear being 'unmasked', I aim to be sensitive and careful whilst being respectful of both partners whatever their story.
I do pre marriage counselling for those who are about to get married, or make a commitment, to facilitate healthy and conscious choices to create a shared vision. Too often, we leave things to chance and then feel disappointed when our dreams are unfulfilled.
I also work with individuals who are experiencing difficulties around relationships.
I work in Exeter, Taunton and Online.
