Some people find it difficult to connect to others emotionally. They may be great at practical stuff, but their black and white thinking, and all or none approach to things can be frustrating for their partners. Neurodiverse people can struggle to feel or express emotion, and can often appear cold and detached. This can be greatly challenging for their partner who craves emotional intimacy. If you such a person, or the partner of such a person, it is worth learning about neurodiversity. The neuro-diverse brain works differently to that of most ‘neuro-typical’ people, and understanding this can reduce a lot of conflict and improve the quality of relationships.

Hello! I am Ranjana, a trained and experienced relationship therapist, specialising in Couples Counselling.
I came into Counselling over 13 years ago,from a background in Psychology. I have trained as a Relationship Counsellor and have worked for the last decade at Relate – a charity that specialises in relationship work.
After completing my Master’s degree in Psychology, I started working with a clinical population. But I soon became more interested in the challenges that a large number of people live with, which may not be problematic enough to merit a label of an illness, but still problematic enough to make everyday life difficult. Things such as insecurities, anxieties, and low mood –can make everyday life and relationships unfulfilling. Feeling frustrated and conflicted in our relationships with family and friends can make us unhappy. Sometimes it is our lack of self- confidence and self- doubt that sabotages our relationships.
If you are not feeling good about yourself, content in your relationships, or where you are in life, it is worth making the effort to change. It is a shame to live with regrets when it is possible to be happy and fulfilled. Counselling can help you find a way to happiness.
Alongside Counselling, I also continue to work with vulnerable people – such as older people, those living with mental health challenges, physical and learning disabilities – and find it inspiring to see how people can enjoy their lives when they can work with - as opposed to– against their challenges.
Counselling costs £50 for individuals, £55 for couples for a 50 minute session.
Concessions available for single parents and pensioners.
