About me

People seek counselling for many reasons. There is no rule for what you should and should not attend counselling for. Whether you are facing a challenging phase in your life, suffer from anxiety or depression, want to improve your emotional health, change recurring patterns of thought or behaviour, have relationship or sexual issues or perhaps need to talk to someone in a non-judgemental and confidential environment - counselling can help.

Seeking counselling can often feel intimidating or scary, but I am here to facilitate a safe, supportive and confidential space for you, where you can explore what is going on in your life. As well as traditional talking therapy, I might also suggest other techniques and exercises that could be helpful. How we work depends on what you bring to the session and what you feel comfortable with. The choice is always yours.


My main areas of practice and experience are:

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Loneliness and issues around belonging

  • Lack of meaning

  • Low self-esteem

  • Relationship problems

  • Personal development

  • Coping with change

  • Sex and sexuality

  • Gender

  • Alternative lifestyle

Psychosexual Therapy

At the moment I'm training at the Centre for Psychosexual Health in London and will be completing a degree in Integrative Psychosexual Therapy in 2019. Psychosexual therapy can help you explore and resolve issues around your sensual and sexual self, either with a partner, partners or as an individual. If you think you could benefit from psychosexual counselling please get in touch.

Psychosexual therapy can help you explore and resolve issues around

  • Your sensual and sexual self
  • Intimacy
  • Shame around sexual desire or preferences
  • Orgasm
  • Lack of desire
  • Arousal difficulties
  • Sexual health
  • General anxiety around sexual issues

I am respectful of all gender, sexual and relationship diversities. Whatever you bring to the sessions we will discuss in a sensitive way and work through with encouragement, knowledge, and understanding.

Further information

My core training was in Psychosynthesis, which is a holistic and integrative model drawing from many schools of psychology. As well as looking at the past it also looks at your present experiences, aspirations and hopes. The model can help us better understand our patterns of behaviour, our personality and our inner life and can lead to a greater ease with yourself, a stronger ability to make choices and clarity on what is really important to you.
