About me

I am a Relate trained counsellor, on the Relate Practitioners Registry

I have specialised in couple counselling and relationship counselling for nearly 30 years, first with Relate and then for 15 years in my private practice in Axminster.

Following a Law Degree, an Open University English Degree and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education, I trained with Relate as a specialist relationship counsellor. This was a prolonged and intensive training focussing on couples, followed by decades of couple work. Few counsellors or therapists have this level of intensive experience working with couples.

I also became a Trainer, delivered CPDs for counsellors and the public, went into prisons to deliver relationship training and held Government sponsored training for separated parents who were having problems with co-parenting.

Helping people get their relationships back on track is profoundly fulfilling and a profession which I feel privileged to belong to.
