The sense of loss and pain triggered by divorce or separation can feel overwhelming particularly when triggered by an affair. Counselling can help you to manage the anxiety, anger, feelings of betrayal and any other emotions you may be experiencing, by working together we can look at strategies to help you to cope.
I work with couples and individuals of all ages and sexual orientation regarding a range of issues affecting relationships. My fee is £55 per hour.
If it is Psychosexual programme that is required the sessions are tailored to your needs and particular issue. I appreciate that talking about your intimate relationship could be embarrassing and distressing therefore I aim to make you to feel as comfortable as possible.
If you are seeking help for porn or sex addiction you will gain an understanding of why this has become an issue for you and how to work towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. If you are the partner of someone who is struggling with this addiction we will work together to help you come to terms with the impact of the addiction on both yourself and your relationship.
I undertake Continuous Professional Development which is part of the requirement to practice as a therapist and to enhance my practice. I hold full professional indemnity insurance. I also attend regular supervision to ensure that I am practising ethically and in the interests of my clients.

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 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.
