07711 199282 / 07711 199282
Please note that I work with individuals and couples from diverse background. The areas that I specialised in are Sex and Relationship issues (affairs and betrayal), Sexual Difficulties/ Dysfunctions (painful sex, erectile or ejaculatory issues), Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity (from chatline to porn), Sexuality (including Gender Dysphoria).
Getting counselling or therapy is not a sign of weakness. Most of us find it difficult to ask for help. It can leave us feeling stuck, frustrated and alone. The truth is that we all need some help from time to time.
Although Counselling/ Psychotherapy does not provide direct solutions, it can help to identify problems and clarify situations from different perspectives. We will work together to assess the root cause problems. We can then collaborate and develop strategies or interventions for your specific goals (what you want to get out of).
Psychosexual Therapy is a highly specialised area. If you are to see a sex therapist, make sure that they are qualified and either registered or accredited with COSRT or CSRP.
I work with clients in Preston and Manchester and offer appointments include evenings and weekends to suit you.
I specialise in anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder and relationship issues but can help you with a much wider range of problems.
Please click through to my website or contact me confidentially by phone or email.
I look forward to working with you.
