About me

I specialise in coaching for relationships: especially couples coaching, support for singles and also friendship or adult family relationships.

Now in my mid 40s and married with two children, I've spent decades fascinated by the complex reality of relationship dynamics. It's a constant learning journey. I'd love to share and help you speed up your journey towards harmony.

About YOU

  • Are you in a relationship where the day to day reality doesn't quite match what you dreamed of?
  • Do little repeating tensions and niggles spoil what is otherwise a great relationship?
  • Do you wish you could understand each other better?

This is the norm for so many people, but nobody ever tells us that relationships are a process that require work. We wouldn't expect a house or car to just run like magic without any maintenance. But we get so immersed 'in' a relationship that we forget to to do the work 'on' it. Together we can do that work and start improving your relationship.

What to expect: Couples / Pairs

In our sessions we create a safe, objective space to explore the themes that are coming up in your relationship, gain insights through models of personality differences, practice listening and communicating better, and take ownership of the one thing we can change - ourselves - with a view to becoming more integrated and balanced.

Through a relationship we get to meet different parts of ourselves, and with it comes the opportunity for awareness and personal development. Using this Personality Parts™ approach we can recognise different aspects of ourselves that react and express in everyday interactions.

I can work with one member of a couple or both together.

What to expect: Singles

For singles we can take stock of the patterns and dynamics of previous relationships and explore what you are looking for next, how best to find it, and what is holding you back.

Is this suitable for you?

Please note:  This relationship coaching is not suitable for those at a crisis point, in major conflict or where there are underlying mental health conditions, trauma or abuse issues involved. In certain circumstances I may signpost to counselling or therapy services. Coaching can certainly help you address lesser problems and facilitate positive change without dwelling on the past.

If you are unsure whether coaching is suitable for you we can discuss in our free 20 min session.

"Fascinating and enlightening, yet down to earth and practical... I particularly liked how non judgemental and even celebratory of differences your approach was. It has definitely helped me understand others better, communicate more effectively and be much more tolerant." Tara, 39.
