As a couples therapist I am interested in understanding the unique dynamics of familiar patterns of relationship discord, for example, conflict, disappointment, isolation and sexual difficulties. Developing an understanding of these underlying forces paves the way for change.
Paramount is the creation of a safe environment in which each person feels free to express themselves fully. Couples can expect to learn effective ways of communicating and to build on the strengths in their relationship. I work in a structured way using Imago Relationships Therapy. I adhere strongly to the belief that a committed relationship is a context in which significant growth can be achieved by each person.
