Expert advice for all your mind and relationship matters

Are you feeling miserable, but you're done with waiting for the overnight miracle?

Are you fed up hoping and wishing that your relationship or marital issue or personal problems will 'somehow' disappear?

I have over 24 years' experience as a (couple) counsellor. I have helped thousands of individuals and couples for whom loving or 'living' became just too difficult to tackle by themselves (see Testimonials).

Oh ...  and I've had my fair share of trouble too!

Here, on my site, you are my personal client and guest! I am the founder, author, chief editor and problem solver of this site. I'm here to you help by means of professional online (relationship) advice and support, including hundreds of self-help articles.

And... you are amazing for reaching out to find a way to better yourself, and thereby your intimate couple relationship!

By the way, I've ditched my (British) English teacher's advice on how to write articles. I write as I talk - as if you're sitting right across from me. :-)

Your online work is the most professional I have seen and I love your 'tell it like it is - in a kind way' style."

Expert relationship advice with a twist

I have well over 200 free articles with expert advice to help you with your problems. It's my mission to help you increase your sense of happiness.

Through my site I'm hoping to make a positive difference in the life of every single visitor here - that includes you.

So here's my promise to you...

I will challenge you to communicate effectively and compassionately for I believe that you will be able to improve your relationship or marriage.

I will cajole you to develop your problem solving skills. I know you can increase your personal emotional well-being and relationship happiness.

I will empathise, soothe and support you. I know only too well from my professional (and personal) experience what it's like to feel frustrated, terribly hurt, confused, angry or simply disappointed.

I will educate you, for I believe that when you know how to meet your essential emotional needs in balance...

... you won't just survive, but you'll thrive.

Whilst you're reading my articles imagine the two of us are having a conversation. I will have welcomed you and, hopefully, helped you to feel at ease.

I'm listening to you intently to understand what you are going through as best as I can.

I'm talking with you soothingly, but I'm direct when I think that it would help.

I hope you'll know, and perhaps even feel it in your gut, that I have your best interest at heart - even if you don't always want to hear what I've got to say.

I would not want you to feel judged. I would not want to sound harsh. Here, on 'paper' though, I may not always be successful at conveying that. I hope you'll understand me.


Your website is exceptional and the resources are particularly helpful. Many thanks for putting it out there for those seeking help."

Having some problems? Don't know what to do? Feeling desperate?

It's really easy for you to get your own online counsellor...

... BetterHelp will find the right counsellor for you.

This is how it works:

  • You can contact your counsellor for FREE for a week as often as you want and get quality professional attention and support.
  • To start your free week-long subscription - safely and securely enter your credit card details. Don't need help beyond your first week? Just cancel your subscription - that's absolutely fine!
  • If you can afford it - give yourself a chance to deal with stuff once and for all and carry on beyond the week. You won't believe what a breath of fresh air it is to have someone on and by your side.
  • Fill in the online questionnaire to help match you with the right counsellor (yes, I know - you may find it little tedious, but it's really important!)
