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.
