About me

I specialise in helping those with relationship difficulties, intimacy issues and porn and sex addiction. I provide a secure and non-judgmental space - somewhere that you can feel safe to communicate your feelings and identify problems you are facing.

Couples Counselling

Counselling as a couple gives you both a chance to explore your relationship in a neutral space. Here, you can look at the present situation, think about what you’d like to change, and begin to move forward with practical strategies.

Individual Counselling

Sometimes it’s helpful to explore things independently of your partner. There’s nothing wrong with taking a step back and looking at things as an individual. I provide a non-judgmental, practical and positive space to do this.

I work with couples and individuals affected by issues such as:

Abuse, affairs and betrayal, anxiety, arguments, bereavement, commitment, communication difficulties, depression, domestic violence, feelings of loss when children leave home, issues with stepfamilies, loss of identity, low self-esteem, parenting, past relationship issues that are affecting the present one, retirement concerns, separation and divorce, sexual disagreements, sexuality and intimacy problems, cultural differences.

Sex and Relationship Therapy

Sexual problems and relationship difficulties are often connected. It is not uncommon for couples to be unhappy with their sexual relationship. I help couples to explore why these problems have come about and work towards resolving them.

I work with couples and individuals affected by issues such as:

Difficulties reaching orgasm (anorgasmia), delayed/premature ejaculation, difficulties arising from sexual abuse, erectile difficulties, internet addiction, lack of sexual information, loss of desire, pain during intercourse (dyspareunia), vaginismus

Sex Addiction Therapy

Some sexual activity can feel ‘out of control’ to a point where, despite trying to stop, you are unable to do so. Many people struggle to deal with these issues alone, even when they are determined to change their behaviour.

Equally, discovering that your partner’s sexual behaviour is out of control can be devastating and isolating. I can help both parties through this experience.

I work with couples and individuals affected by issues such as:

Compulsive viewing of pornography, chat lines, visiting prostitutes, visiting sex cinemas, exhibitionism, voyeurism, compulsive masturbation, fetishes, anonymous sex, telephone sex, illegal sexual practices

Online Counselling

I offer online counselling as a secure and convenient way of getting the help you need. The service is discreet and can be accessed anywhere that you feel comfortable using a computer, tablet or smartphone. Zoom is a fully encrypted, secure platform for online counselling sessions, so you can be confident that what you say will remain completely private.

Please get in touch to arrange a 15-minute telephone or online consultation. For more information visit www.radlettcounselling.co.uk or www.pornaddictiontherapy.co.uk

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.

ATSAC

The Association for Treatment of Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity (ATSAC) is the leading UK organisation providing hope, information, support, and treatment options for those affected by sexual addiction and compulsivity.

ATSAC sets standards of practice for qualified therapists and provides accreditation for specialist training courses. A therapist who has gone through ATSAC recognised training will have the knowledge to respect and work with you sensitively to find out how best to support your needs.

Therapy options may include one-to-one sessions, group work, and/or relationship counselling. ATSAC is a not-for-profit organisation.
