Are you unhappy in a relationship? Unsure whether it could be toxic?

My name is Ali and I’m a counsellor with 8 years of experience. I have a real passion for helping people who are trapped in toxic or unhealthy dynamics with their family and loved ones. Sometimes when you’re in a dynamic with a narcissist or with someone who is manipulative or controlling, violent or abusive, the abuse can be psychological and emotional. Part of the challenge of these dynamics is that it’s often difficult to work out exactly what's going on. That's where I come in.

I have my own story of growing up in an unhealthy dynamic and while I have learnt a lot in my studies and clinical experience, much of what I know is from first-hand experience. This also gives me deep empathy and understanding of what you may be going through and particular perspectives that other clinicians may not have.

I am also solution oriented and my goal is to see you for a set, but short period of time and to use this time together to help you build a personal road map that is actionable to move you to a better and healthier place.

I’m happy to have an upfront 15 min chat by phone, for free, to figure out whether I can help you and whether we could work together. If you’d like this, please reach out to me and I’ll be in touch.
