About us


In addition to our experience outlined below, we also have considerable experience that we have gained working together over the past 5 years with both couples with relationship difficulties and adult families where there are unresolved difficulties that families may have been struggling with for many years. We both also have many years experience working in child and adolescent mental health and can help parents and their families where there are neurodevelopmental conditions such as autism or ADHD.
