Some reasons why people have sought my help

We've neglected 'us' since the boys were born. We need help to get back on track and improve things.

She's had an affair: I'm angry and now that's destroying us.

He works all hours and I get no support with the house and kids. I'm lonely and resentful.

There's no sex. He's avoiding talking about it. I love him but it can't go on like this.

He left two days ago. I’m in shock!  I need to talk to someone.

I want us to start a family but he can't commit to more children and maybe that means not to me.

I'm having an affair with another woman. How do I tell my husband?

We're like flat mates. I want to end it and I need her to hear this because she just isn't listening.

We've been separated for a year and want to try again - but not make the same mistakes this time.

My partner wants us to go to gay sex clubs and I'm not happy to do that. We argue about it.

He's just retired. We bicker constantly. I'm not sure we like each other anymore.

I’ve watched hard core porn late into the night for years. My wife’s found out; I’m ashamed but I can’t stop.

I'm having an affair. She knows and wants me to stay. I wish she'd throw me out. I can't end the affair but I can't leave my wife.

We're getting married but we have stupid arguments which develop into something nasty.

All we have in common is our thirteen year old and now she's started criticising me - just like her mother does.

Occasionally people approach me with issues other than their relationship (for example severe mental health problems or a substance or gambling addiction). In these cases they may not benefit from couple work and I encourage them to seek help from other professionals before coming back to couple therapy.
