About me

I am one of the few Accredited Sex Therapists in Northern Ireland. I trained with Relate and have also  achieved my Accreditation with COSRT as a supervisor of Sex Therapists. I work mainly with clients who are experiencing sexual problems. These include: Lack of Desire, Erectile Problems Painful  or unsatisfactory Intercourse or an inability to have sex (vaginismus). I am also a Relationship Counsellor with 20 years experience and a BACP Snr Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist. I am thus able to deal with all aspects of Couple relationships including communication problems and negotiating change.
I also offer supervision to Counsellors and Therapists, both experienced and in training.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.

COSRT

College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists

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.
