About me

I am a fully qualified psychotherapist with experience of working with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and trauma. My work has taken place in primary care, the charity sector and private practice.  I specialise in working with individuals and couples offering psychosexual therapy to help overcome sexual difficulties. I am currently undertaking a diploma in this subject.  

Talking about your sex life can feel strange and embarrassing at first but I offer a safe, patient, respectful and compassionate environment so that you can talk freely without judgement. As our sex lives do not exist in a void, psychosexual therapy explores the mind and the body alongside a behavioural approach.

Some of the themes I work with are: vaginismus, low desire, premature ejaculation and erectile dysfunction. I work across all sexualities, gender identities and sexual orientations.

I also work with those without sexual difficulties offering long term psychotherapy, working together to make sense of your problems, enable a deeper understanding of yourself and make changes if you wish.

I offer weekly and fortnightly sessions on Thursdays.  If you would like to book a session or have questions about the type of therapy I offer, please do contact me. I am based in Gosforth near Newcastle, a short walk from a metro station.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified as a counsellor in 2014 and as a psychotherapist in 2017. I hold a diploma in both counselling and psychotherapy from the Northern Guild, which has an excellent reputation in the profession. 

I am also trained to deliver EMDR therapy completing my training in January 2023. EMDR is an evidenced based and a highly effective type of therapy for those with trauma and/or PTSD. 

Currentrently working towards a Diploma in Psychosexual Therapy with Tavistock Relations.
