About me

I'm a qualified Psychosexual and Relationship Psychotherapist accredited with COSRT and registered with the BACP. 

I am pending training as a clinical supervisor from Sept 2024 and will be offering low cost supervision to supervisee's from Oct 2024 (Please contact me further if you're interested)

Alongside my private practice, I work as a Psychosexual Therapist at Leicester Sexual Health Services within Midlands Partnership NHS Trust. I previously worked for CICS (Contemporary Institute of Clinical Sexology) marking team, moderating academic submissions.

Previously I worked in mental health psychiatric units, forensic units and dementia mental health care.

I am intent on breaking barriers around the conversation of pleasure and how there is no one right way to participate, enjoy and engage in giving and receiving pleasure. I believe sexuality to be the essence of self-expression and work towards removing shame and stigma around sex.

I am kink knowledgeable coming from a background in sex work and kink/fetish. I am passionate about demystifying this area, smashing through the taboo and bringing awareness to the niche preferences that many enjoy partaking in for all kinds of pleasure. I am part of the LGBTQIA+ community and pride myself on being all inclusive while creating a safe, non-judgmental space for all.

I am a narcissism aware therapist who works with individuals that have been in relationships with narcissistic partners and are dealing with the aftermath of this. I also work with couples currently experiencing the possibility of these traits being present within one or more partners and how to navigate the dynamic so everyone's needs are met.

I work pluralistically from a contemporary biopsychosocial framework which incorporates all aspects of self. My goal is to look at a person holistically (as a whole) while tailoring therapy, rejecting the idea of “box fitting” and working collaboratively with my clients to insight confidence and empowerment in their own autonomy.

I work with GSRD clients, all sexual function issues, compulsive sexual behaviours, sexuality/sexual orientation, diversity and intersectionality’s, sexual violence/trauma, kink/fetish, alternative relationship dynamics, shame, couples and multiple partner relationships on issues such as conflict management, communication difficulties, separation, infidelity, ethical non monogamy/polyamory, jealousy/compersion, mismatched desire and more!

I work online (UK and EU) and in person (in the Weybridge area of Surrey).

Member organisations

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

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
College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT)

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

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).
