About me

I am an experience person centered counsellor, specialized in Psychosexual & Relationship Therapy. The basic principle of my approach is to create an opportunity to build a safe 'Therapeutic Relationship' with a growing willingness, trust and respect to explore issues/emotions which may be a result of past or present experiences. I offer a non-judgmental, confidential and honest 'safe space' to explore and unravel difficulties/challenges which may well be affecting your daily life, relationships, work, general health, intimacy (sexual/non sexual) and sexual experiences. I will facilitate your journey of exploration of your self & world, whether an individual or couple of a different or same sex relationship.

Through new understandings grows an awareness and clarity of the difficulties/feelings being experienced, through this awareness comes understanding of the choices, resulting in making positive changes which meet your needs. Irrational thoughts & feelings make sense when we understand where they are coming from, what the triggers are and how to implement a plan to bring about transformation for a healthy, respectful, compromising relationship. I will educate why we chose the partners we do, introduce skills and tools to embrace non abusive conflict, to see it as an opportunity to deepen the connection within the relationship and to grow as an individual.

I specialize in working with either individuals or couples who are experiencing relationship problems of various issues of :-
communication breakdown, disconnection, betrayal, Infidelity, Libido loss, Sexual difficulties, Sexual addiction, infertility, separation, divorce, menopause, mental health and sexual dysfunctions such as:

> Loss of desire/interest
> Erectile dysfunction
> Vaginismus (Involuntary spasm of the circumvaginal muscles)
> Dyspareunia (female) (Pain with sexual intercourse/penetration)
> Premature ejaculation
> Orgasmic Disorder

Also issues of:
> Sexual Trauma
> Sexual Identity Issues
> Ejaculation problems
> Sexual Phobia
> Fetish and Paraphilia
> Drug/Alcohol addiction

Relationship problems have an impact on the sex life and sexual difficulties/mental health, also the menopause symptoms impact the relationship, bringing about a constant circle, which for sure will bring frustration, failure and disappointment with the sense of the relationship feeling 'stuck'.

I use skills from an integrative model to create a unique structure for the individual or couple, with a core foundation of congruence, non judgment and empathy with respect of the human ability to heal its self.

I am an accredited COSRT (College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists) and a BACP (British association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) full member and I abide by each of their code of ethics of best practice with regards to commitment to ongoing training, supervision and professional development.

Being awarded the accreditation with COSRT means I am a specialist in psychosexual and relationship therapy, having met strict criteria in respect of training, experience, knowledge, ethical standards, clinical skills and commitment to continuous professional development; this is audited annually.
