Albertina specialises in helping people with relationship issues as they affect both individuals and couples. She has particular skills in counselling couples in distress, who have reached a crisis point in their relationship, who feel stuck, who are considering separating or are going through a separation, or who just want to make things better.

Going to counselling can be a daunting prospect, and even more so if you are considering coming as a couple.

As a specially trained and experienced couples counsellor, Albertina understands your concerns. She will be able to provide a supportive, neutral environment in which it becomes possible to think and communicate in ways you may find it difficult to do on your own at the moment. 


If you want to have counselling as an individual, you will find Albertina a warm, supportive and insightful therapist who will gently challenge you to reach a deeper understanding of yourself, and support you as you take more responsibility for your happiness. 


At ACT, Albertina offers 50 minute sessions with individuals and couples. She is happy to have a free, no obligation telephone conversation with you first.
