This blog is intended to give you a flavour of how I work as a counsellor. You can find more information about me by clicking one of the links above.
In considering relationship counselling, couples are sometimes concerned about whether to choose a male or a female counsellor. There is a fear that a two-onto-one gender alliance will form.
I can understand couples being concerned, and it is a concern for me too, as it is very important for me to remain neutral, to see both points of view, to give each person equal time and weight in the room.
In my counselling, I encourage an open dialogue about such questions, so that if I felt I might be biased in either direction I will ask you whether you feel that too, and would hope that if you felt I was taking sides, you would bring that to my attention so that I could address it.
Honesty and openness are important keys to successful counselling, just as they are in our personal relationships.
