Intimate relationships can sometimes be difficult and even painful, whether we are currently in one, have recently left one, or are alone and longing to be part of a couple.
I specialise in helping people with sexual and relationship issues as they affect both individuals and couples. Having qualified in Pscyhosexual therapy and Couples and Individual Psychotherapy with the world renowned Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships in London, I have specialised skills in helping counselling couples in distress, who have reached a crisis point in their relationship, who feel stuck, who are considering separating or are going through a separation, or who just want to make things better!
Going to counselling can be a daunting prospect, and even more so if you are considering coming as a couple. You may worry that the counsellor will take sides, that you will not be understood, or that your partner will misrepresent you. As a specially trained and experienced couples counsellor, I understand your concerns. You can be assured that I will be able to provide a supportive, neutral environment in which it becomes possible to think and communicate in ways you may find it difficult to do on your own at the moment. When it comes to sexual issues, I will make you feel comfortable talking about them, and provide you with information, advice, and homework as needed to make things better.
Whatever your sexual or relationship difficulities, you will find me a warm, supportive and insightful therapist who will gently challenge you to reach a deeper understanding of yourself, and support you as you take more responsibility for your happiness.
To get started
Please feel free to contact me through the contact form (using the Email button) on this website. I will always reply to your enquiry, so if you have not received an email after a few days, please check your Spam folder. After this, we can agree a mutually convenient time for a phone call to briefly discuss your current issues, and the help I can offer. If this seems like the right kind of support for you, we will arrange to meet face-to-face for an initial consultation session, after which you can decide whether to continue with regular sessions. Sessions will take place once a week, and can go on for as short or as long a time as you need.
You can hear me talk about sex and relationships in this podcast episode:

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
COSRT is the UK’s leading membership organisation for therapists specialising in sexual and relationship issues.
All members must abide by their Code of Ethics and the performance of accredited members is regularly monitored.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
