Kristina, a mother of five adult children including three stepchildren, has been married to her second husband for twelve years. Following a career in business and time spent raising a family, Kristina returned to study to fulfil a long held interest in the practice of psychology setting up her own practice to provide evidence-based psychological services for individuals and couples.

Working with couples as they experience the joys of deepening their connection through therapy, has inspired Kristina to train in Gottman Method Couples Therapy, to become a qualified Seven Principle for Making Marriage Work Leader, and a Bringing Baby Home Educator. Kristina feels privileged to  witness couples as they journey from ‘disasters’ to ‘masters’ of relationships. As humans our greatest joy is in our connections.

“My clients inspire me. It’s a privilege to work with people who are coping with difficult circumstances, building new skills and making changes in their lives.”

Praise for workshops by Kristina:

“Initially I was reluctant to attend, but my wife convinced me that we should. I am so glad we did – the day was an absolute revelation & I learned so much! Thank you.”

“We have gained some tools to help us communicate better and deepen our already great friendship/relationship”

“The course gave us new ways of looking at our problems.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop held on 16 March. It was very interesting and informative and my partner and I gained lots of knowledge. The structure was easy to learn and I liked that we didn’t have to share any personal information with Kristina. She made us feel really comfortable. This workshop with Kristina changed us and I know my partner and I will continue to get closer and closer.”
