About me

I am a Psychosexual & Relationship Therapist who works with both individuals and couples.

I work with clients who come to me with a wide range of sexual and relationship problems including;

  • Loss of sexual desire
  • Miss-matched libido within a relationship
  • Arguments and miss-communication
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Pain during sex
  • Difficulty with orgasm
  • Rapid Ejaculation
  • Worries concerning Sexual Identity
  • Dealing with infidelity

Training, qualifications & experience

Following a foundation course, where I studied an Integrative Approach to general psychotherapy, I studied for my Post Graduate Diploma in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy with The London Diploma, accredited by COSRT and Middlesex University.  I also hold a qualification from the organisation Relate in couples and relationship counselling.

I am a registered member of The College of Sex and Relationship Therapists (COSRT) and a general member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)

Member organisations


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.

Further information

I encourage couples and individuals to be truly honest with themselves, and each other, to think about their own needs as well as their partners.  I help clients to work towards achievable goals and to consider difficulties that could lie in the future and help them with strategies to deal with them.

I work with clients to improve their communication style, increase understanding of themselves and their partner whilst always bearing in mind the interplay between the two areas of sexual function and great relationships.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
