    Intensive Workshops and Coaching for couples

    In the busy lives that we lead and with childcare issues, it is sometimes a struggle for couples to find the time to commit to weekly or fortnightly sessions.
    This is with this in mind that I offer intensive workshops for couples. Positive change can occur with intensive workshops and it requires less commitment than attending weekly couples therapy.
    The Intensive Coaching sessions are suitable for couples of all sexual orientations. For more information Click Here
