About me

Hello - I am a qualified therapist with over 12 years experience working with adults and children within the NHS.I am a therapist who is committed to supporting your emotional wellbeing and development. I tailor our sessions to support your unique journey, providing a safe and supportive space to inspire growth, healing and transformation.

I am committed to and value the process of therapeutic change and understand the importance of providing a safe space in which to explore and work on your issues. I feel that that engaging within therapy should help promote your journey to greater awareness of self and others. I believe everybody has the ability to change and flourish given the right conditions.

I am currently training  as a psychosexual (Sex) and relationship therapist with the London Diploma in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy. I am offering therapy at a reduced rate for couples and individuals who maybe experiencing difficulties with their relationship or sex lives.

The services I offer are :
Psychosexual (Sex ) Therapy
Relationship Therapy
Individual Therapy
Adolescent Therapy
Child Therapy

Clinical Supervision

Psychosexual (Sex) Therapy / Relationship Therapy

If unresolved these issues can have a significant impact on individual, sexual, emotional and relationship functioning and well being.

I work integratively with a view that sexual difficulties can have physical, psychological and emotional impacts.

Getting Started:
STEP 1 ; Call or email to make your initial appointment.
STEP 2; Initial appointment to see what counselling entails.
STEP 3; Make further appointments, either weekly or fortnightly.

People may seek psychosexual therapy for a wide range of issues including:

  • Issues with sexual intimacy
  • Difficulties with orgasm
  • Sexual diversity
  • Male erection problems (erectile dysfunction)
  • Orgasming too quickly (premature ejaculation)
  • Sexual Trauma
  • Sexual Abuse
  • Loss of sexual desire and arousal difficulties
  • Menopause
  • Sexual phobias
  • Dyspareunia (pain during sex)
  • Vaginismus (difficulty or inability to have penetrative sex)
  • Addictions

    You may wish to seek support for solely relationship difficulties without the presence of psychosexual issues and I welcome you on this journey.

    Relationship therapy can help provide support with helping to foster enhanced communication between couples, increasing awareness and understanding dynamics.

    People may seek relationship therapy when experiencing difficulties around:

    • Trust, betrayal
    • Commitment issues
    • Stress, frustration, anger
    • Sexual issues
    • Communication issues
    • Dealing with conflict
    • Relationship loss
    • Communication issues
    • Patterns and roles in relationships

    I are currently offering reduced rates for Psychosexual/Relationship Therapy sessions. I welcome same sex couples and transgender.

Individual Therapy

I understand that life can be difficult and isolating at times. Individuals can struggle with different issues throughout their lives and we feel that the therapeutic space within counselling can be extremely valuable.

I will provide an environment for you to have the chance to work through personal issues, helping you gain greater awareness and insight and move towards a more integrated and connected self.

I may work with you to help you uncover patterns in your life that may be affecting your emotional and psychological growth.

Adolescents Therapy Adolescence can be a time of huge change and challenge. We understand and respect that this can be a tumultuous time for both adolescents and their families.

Adolescents may require one to one support for help with varying issues which may include difficulties with:

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Poor body image
  • Eating issues
  • Low self esteem
  • Self harm
  • Issues around identity
  • School
  • Expressing emotions
  • Low mood
  • Relationships
  • Sexuality
  • Bullying
  • Negative thinking
  • Drugs/Alcohol

Child Therapy

Counselling can be extremely helpful and supportive when children are experiencing challenges or difficulties in their lives.

I provide a safe, therapeutic environment for your child to express and work through their emotions and challenges. We work collaboratively and will liaise with other professionals if this is needed. I work in a holistic way and focus on the best interests of your child at all times.

Whilst respecting confidentiality, I will endeavour to keep the parent/guardian informed of the progress of therapy and encourage parental involvement if necessary.

Clinical Supervision

I offer clinical supervision to therapists (including trainees), mental health professionals, nurses, health visitors amongst other professionals.

Clinical supervision can contribute to your growth, both personally and professionally.

I provide high quality supervision and endeavour to promote your journey as a professional.

I offer reduced rated to trainees.
