About me

I am a fully qualified Clinical Psychologist and specialist sex therapist working in the NHS in a Gender Dysphoria Clinic.

We meet in a comfortable and confidential setting where you will feel relaxed and supported to be able to think about the difficulties that you are having.

I have a background in working with people who have experienced trauma and interpersonal problems which cause them difficulties in day to day life. I often work successfully with people who have problems that they feel are long term, 'untreatable' or who have had therapy before.

In addition to these broader difficulties I also offer help to people experiencing sexual difficulties.

I am happy to discuss your difficulties with you if you feel that I might be able to help, so please use the contact details here to request a telephone call for a free consultation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have completed a doctorate in clinical psychology and am a trained psychosexual therapist. I have over 15 years of experience working in the NHS.

My practice is regulated by the Health Professions Council and the College Of Sexual and Relationship Therapists.

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
