Adults & Couples


Olwen has extensive experience of working with individual adults with a broad spectrum of emotional, psychological or mental health difficulties. People often face times when they are vulnerable, need to navigate change or are affected by one or more of the issues set out below.


Few relationships are problem free. Olwen has worked as a Family Mediator and has experience of working with couples in both therapeutic and mediation contexts.
