My approach

Your relationship is in trouble. You feel like if you don’t do something soon, it will be over. And neither of you really want it to be over. If you could stop the arguments. If you could stop the shutting down and withdrawing. If you could both reconnect and feel loved, loving and safe again…

I offer specialist relationship counselling in London (Waterloo and Angel, Islington). I use emotionally focused therapy as the basis for my approach and it has a validated 75% success rate (from crisis to normalcy).

The approach helps to identify and stop destructive dynamics, as well as re-establishing the emotional safety needed for relationship development. Sometimes other factors are at play, including addiction and trauma, and these can be worked on both within the couple sessions and separately.

I have been seeing private clients since 2003. In addition to providing therapy, I have established and run an award-winning North London charity specialising in arts-in-health services for older people and general psychological services for all local adults.

I am compassionate, experienced and can help you both to work things out.
