About me

I offer counselling and sex therapy (psychosexual therapy) to couples and individuals. I am widely qualified so I can work in a way that suits you in my confidential counselling room separate from my house. I can help with issues such as:

  • repetitive rows which seem to solve nothing
  • inability to resolve issues
  • feeling that as a couple you have drifted apart
  • the discovery of an affair
  • wanting to understand why a relationship went wrong for you
  • anxiety and panic attacks
  • depression
  • bereavement
  • loss of sexual desire or problems when having sex
  • sexual addiction
  • your partner is using pornography in a way that worries you
  • the effects of sexual abuse

I also work with sex addicts and sex offenders.

I worked as a senior manager in three different organisations so I have extensive knowledge and understanding of work related issues.


I also offer supervision for individual and couple counselling, sex therapy and sex addiction. My approach is suited to a wide range of counselling styles including person-centred, psychodynamic and integrative.

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

COSRT

College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists

COSRT is the UK’s leading membership organisation for therapists specialising in sexual and relationship issues.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
