South Devon Couples Therapy

Is Poor Communication and a Lack of Intimacy Destroying Your Relationship?

Is your relationship:

  • Stuck in perpetual problems?
  • Lacking in fondness and admiration?
  • Full of loneliness?
  • Emotionally disconnected?

Would you like to be able to:

  • Overcome infidelity and rebuild trust in your relationship?
  • Find ways to fix communication breakdowns and failed communications
  • Communicate better with your partner and avoid misunderstanding?
  • Feel really heard, listened to, and understood?
  • Enjoy life more with your partner?

If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of the above statements, then rest assured…

You’re in the right place because I have a solution for you.

How can you be certain I can help?


  • I’m a couples counsellor – I’m trained in several evidenced-based, solution-focused couples therapy theories
  • I only work with couples – Unlike most counsellors who dabble in couples work as a sideline to their individual work, I only work with couples.
  • I work with serious couples in serious relationships facing serious problems – If you and your partner are serious about saving your relationship and committed to putting in the work required, you’ll be delighted with the changes you can make.

Unlike most counsellors, I’m not wedded to one school of relationship theory. I’m only interested in two things:

  1. Does it work?
  2. Is it backed by repeatable, science-based, randomised controlled trials and evidence?

As such I take an eclectic approach to couples counselling. I’m constantly learning, practicing, and deepening my skills.

All so I can help you to get better, quicker, and more desirable results.
