About me

Coaching for relationships: couples coaching, singles, friendship & adult family relationships. Understanding personality differences.

I hold an MSc in organisational psychology and became a qualified coach in 2018. I am certified in relationship coaching and various type and trait personality assessments. This training can help me understand your situation on a deeper level. Jungian and psychodynamic thinking on the unconscious mind and everyday parts or subpersonalities often inform my approach.

Currently in my mid 40s and married with two children, I love studying the complex reality of relationship dynamics. Let me 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 repeating tensions and disagreements spoil what is otherwise a great relationship?
  • Do you wish you could understand each other better?
  • Has your relationship changed since becoming parents, or another life event?

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. Many also find coaching more approachable than counselling or therapy, feeling less of a stigma for attending.

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.
