About me

Many people experience anxiety about their relationships and sex at some point in their lives. Relationship therapy offers the opportunity to discuss your concerns with a therapist specially trained in this area of work in a safe, supportive and confidential environment. I have also worked for many years as a clinical nurse specialist in sexual and reproductive health. Please also see my website www.highgatetherapy.co.uk

I specialise in therapy for problems with relationships, sex and intimacy. These might be due to, among other reasons, illness, anxiety, sexual function, pain during sex, cultural and religious differences, trauma, gender identity or sexual orientation, sexual compulsivity, bereavement and infertility. I have a very broad experience working with a very diverse population in large inner city NHS sexual health clinics, NHS psychosexual services and in private practice.

I offer all potential clients a free 10 minute consultation over the phone. I can also travel to see clients if illness or disability makes it difficult for them to travel, subject to availability.

Some of the concerns people bring maybe related to :

Relationship problems
Painful sex and/or difficulties with penetration
Difficulties with getting or maintaining erections
Premature or delayed ejaculation
Loss of interest or enjoyment in sex
Difficulty in reaching climax
Compulsive/addictive sexual problems
Problems associated with menopause
Difficulties related to disability, chronic disease, accidents, surgery, cancer treatment and skin conditions
Difficulties in relationship after diagnosis of a terminal illness
Bereavement
Sexually transmitted infections
Infertility
Menopause
Conflicting feelings and/or fear of pregnancy
Gender identity and sexuality
Cultural and religious influences
Concerns about personal sexual practice or those of partner(s)
Lack of knowledge about sex
Kink friendly

If you are currently in a relationship you will be encouraged to attend sessions with your partner because sexual and relationship difficulties rarely 'belong' to one partner or the other. If you don't have a current partner or they don't want to attend appointments it can be very useful to work on your own. It may also be that you would prefer to see a therapist on your own.

Relationship therapy and Psychosexual therapy are both talking therapies but you may be asked to practise some helpful practical techniques in the privacy of your own home.

Sessions are weekly or twice monthly and work can be short or longer term depending on client needs. Numbers of session are influenced by the pace at which the client feels comfortable to work. I can be flexible for those with irregular work schedules depending on appointment availability.

How To Get Started

Contact me by phone or email to make an appointment for an initial assessment.  There is no obligation to continue into therapy.  This is an opportunity for me to find out about your concerns and get a sense of whether we make a good fit and what the work we do together might look like.
