About me

I have a private practice in counselling, psychosexual therapy and lifeskills training. The last includes Anger Management training.

One of my specialities is couple counselling for relationship problems including sexual problems I have been a Relate Counsellor for many years. Stress management is also important.

I appeared in the Channel 4 Programme "Better Sex" a few years ago.

I was a founder member and past Chair of the local "Bedfordshire Area Counselling and Psychotherapy Association".
I am Accredited with College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists and have been a counsellor for "Relate" for many years

An increasingly important problem in my practice is addiction to aberrant sexual behaviour especially internet pornography.

I work with a number of Employee Assistance organisations and therefore am familiar with many problems that people experience in the workplace - for instance, relationships with colleagues and with management.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

psychosexual therapy is the treatment of specific sexual dysfunctions such as loss of desire, anorgasmia, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation and vaginismus. This is a therapy with an unusually high success rate. The therapy was largely developed by Relate and their statistics suggest that over 90% of people who complete the treatment report that their sexual relationship has been substantially improved.

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.
