I am a qualified and experienced Relate trained Relationship Counsellor and Psychosexual Therapist with over 10 years experience and a member of the College of Sex and Relationship Therapists (COSRT) and a registered member of BACP.
I work with couples and individuals of all ages and sexual orientation regarding a range of issues affecting their relationships.
Through a supportive and non-judgemental counselling relationship we can work together to help you to gain clarity on the issues you bring. I won't tell you what to do, instead we will talk about what you are experiencing and feeling at this time and work towards identifying the options available to help you to feel less stuck.
The sense of loss and pain triggered by the breakdown of a significant relationship can feel overwhelming. Counselling can help you to manage the anxiety, anger and any other emotions you may be experiencing, by working together we can look at strategies to enable you to cope.
I can also help couples who are struggling with step parenting where new understanding and agreements couid be developed creating harmony both in the couple relationship and the family relationship. Counselling can also be effective in adjusting to life with a young child or teenagers allowing couples to talk about their parenting styles and share their ideas and anxieties.
If it is Psychosexual treatment that is required a full assessment is taken and a programme tailored to the clients needs and particular issue. I appreciate that talking about your intimate relationship could be embarrassing and distressing therefore my aim is to provide a professional and supportive environment to enable you to feel as comfortable as possible.
I am a member of COSRT and BACP I am bound by their code of ethics and principles of good practice. I undertake Continuous Professional Development as part of the requirement and to enhance my practice. I hold full professional indemnity insurance and possess an enhanced DBS certificate. I also attend regular supervision to ensure that I am practising ethically and in the interests of my clients.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I work with sexual dysfunctions experienced by both men and women whether due to a physical condition or psychological issue. Following a thorough assessment we will work together, whether that is as an individual or a couple, to create an intimate relationship which works for you.
The assessment session will be 50 minutes, this gives you the opportunity to explain what led you to seek counselling or psychosexual therapy and what you are hoping to achieve. Follow up sessions will also be 50 minutes. Appointments can be a one-off session, weekly or fortnightly, each session costs £50 whether you are an individual, couple or young person. Sessions are usually face to face but Skype and telephone are other options.
