About me

I am a qualified counsellor with particular experience in relationship and psychosexual issues providing both short and longer term therapy to couples and individuals over 18.

I work with couples and individuals facing difficulty in their relationships and am experienced in working with psychosexual issues.

​Whether the challenges you face are related to communication, intimacy, sex, trust issues, affairs or dysfunctions, I can help you. I work with clients on their relationships, helping them to reconnect.

​Having sexual difficulties can feel very isolating. You may feel embarrassed and awkward about speaking of them. It takes courage and commitment to recognise you might need help to resolve a problem as a couple or an individual.

​Throughout life we experience painful events and pressures, somehow we manage to carry on with our lives.  However, there can be times when we feel completely overwhelmed. Talking to an experienced therapist about the issues that are affecting you and your relationship, can help in finding a path through those troubled times, to find fulfilment and healing for yourself and your relationship.

I offer a warm, supportive, non-judgemental and confidential service. I am committed to working with you in a way that is tailored to your individual therapeutic needs. As an integrative counsellor, I draw on a selection of counselling models to support my work with you.

Currently I run my private practice in Salisbury, having worked in a city centre agency for several years.

I am an Accredited Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, abiding by their ethical framework. In line with this I have regular supervision and am committed to my own professional development.   I hold professional indemnity insurance.

The number of sessions required would depend on what it is you would like to explore and this would be discussed during the initial assessment session.
