About me

I am a Relate trained and qualified Counsellor and Psychosexual Therapist with 26 years experience working with couples and individuals.

Counselling:  I am an Integrative Counsellor - meaning I draw upon various models of therapy in order to best help clients understand themselves, their role in the world and their relationships with others. I work with a wide range of issues and have experience of various work settings - including GP surgeries.

Psychosexual Therapy: Sexual problems can cause a lot of distress and unhappiness but with the help of a trained and experienced Psychosexual Therapist, most clients soon feel more comfortable with, and confident in, the process. After therapy many clients report that they have been able to overcome their sexual difficulties and go on to have rewarding and fulfilling sex lives. Psychosexual Therapy can help individuals or couples to explore what is not working and what needs to be different. My aim is to help clients identify what is causing the problem (regardless of whether it is long-standing or recent) and provide practical ways of dealing with it in order to renew sexual confidence and intimacy in existing or future relationships.

Sex Addiction: In the last few years I have pursued a particular interest in the treatment of sexual addiction. Sex Addiction Therapy offers a specialised treatment programme for those whose sexual behaviours have become out of control and which they continue with, often to the detriment of work, family and relationships. I can help people to understand why the addiction has occurred, address any underlying issues that may be contributing to their abnormal sexual behaviour, and put in place healthy, alternative ways to meet their needs.

Sexual Offending:  I am a trained and accredited member of STOPSO (Specialist Treatment Organisation for the Prevention of Sexual Offending) and work in a highly confidential and secure way with people who have sexually offended.

Supervision:  I have been a Supervisor since 2003 and provide supervision for both Counsellors and Psychosexual Therapists.

I have a passion and belief in the work I do – and continue to be amazed and fascinated by the human condition and how therapy can facilitate positive and lasting change.
