Appointments via: Skype - Telephone - Face-to-face. Counselling, therapy and coaching.
Welcome. It can be hard sometimes finding the right therapist. When we're struggling I think we often feel that we need to connect with someone at a human level, as well as professionally. I work with sex problems, sex addictions and specialise at working with sexworkers who often struggle to find a nonjudgemental therapist. I also work with ... you! Everyone is welcome here.
Sex and relationship counselling is:
- A space to talk about your sex and relationship life
- Safer sex concerns
- Safer and more fulfilling intimacy
- General sexual development
- Sex problems
- Sex addiction and
- anything you want to talk about
Maybe you want to talk about something other than sex and need to work with someone who is down to earth. Feel free to get in touch for a no-obligation informal chat.
I'm qualified in counselling and therapy and am a natural healer and empath.
I believe that every client can find the right therapist for them. Often it is down to personality as well as qualifications and experience. My approach is warm, open and grounded and I consider myself to be 'heart-centred'.
