About me

Hello and thank you for reading my profile.  I am an Online and face to face Psychosexual Therapist. I mostly work online (with people aged 18+) using Zoom, (free to download and more secure than Skype) for video appointments, or to talk without video, or indeed just to type back and forth (instant messaging) if clients want that extra layer of anonymity. I don't have employees, so clients contact me directly and no other personnel are involved.  The minimal client notes I keep, are stored securely and are not seen by anybody else. I uphold client confidentiality and privacy and have rooms in the Scottish Borders, (for face to face work) that are quiet and without any information to identify the nature of my business. If there is any specific aspect of confidentiality that you are worried about - please let me know and I shall try hard to accommodate your needs.

The majority of my clients seek help for their relationship, as a couple or individual.  That may be for general relationship therapy, or for sexual problems they have not been able to resolve e.g. (erectile dysfunction, {including porn induced}, low sex drive, unable to orgasm, painful sex and more. In addition I work with people that are struggling to keep their behaviour within the UK legal system (please see website). This is specialist work and even more so if a client has compulsive sexual behaviour. This has a huge impact on relationships and on the person caught up in the destructive cycle of addiction. Most people with compulsive sexual behaviour feel extremely alone and are full of guilt and shame which drives them towards the behaviour even more.  Partners are often traumatised and the 'addict' can be in fierce denial about how their behaviour is impacting so negatively on their partner. I have a lot of therapy experience and understanding of women with a partner that is 'lost' to sexual addiction. If you recognise yourself in any of these descriptions I would be pleased to asses your situation, ultimately to help you find yourself and your way forward through this confusing and painful situation.

Most 'sex addicts' are men, but woman are also starting to come forward.  Woman more commonly present as 'love addicts,' (men can be love addicts too) which is another destructive and emotionally painful condition.  Sadly there is even more stigma attached to female 'sex addicts' than male counterparts which further prevents them for seeking help.  If you are one of these women please contact me and you will be treated sensitively, confidentialy, without judgement and a with a full understanding of the struggle for you.  I shall help you to stabilise your emotions and behaviour and to understand yourself better. People can and do learn how to discontinue compulsions that are detrimental to their wellbeing.

Daily, I work with university students that have troubling mental health problems such as anxiety, depression, bereavement, loss, family problems, eating distress and many more conditions. I have a lot of experience helping people to overcome these conditions. If that is your situation I would be pleased to hear from you.

Whatever your problem, I will fully assess you and we shall work in collaboration to help you find a happier emotional place to be.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I work integratively meaning that I can use a variety of approaches to best suit the individual.  'One size does not fit all'.  I often use Compassionate Focussed Therapy, particularly to help people experiencing a lot of shame.  I constantly undertake Continued Professional Development & training, to keep up to date with new views, research findings and new approaches.

Fees

In line with most Therapists, I work a 50 min hour - spending the last 10 mins writing notes and preparing any handouts I need to email to you.

My payment schedule is;

A Free 30 minute initial consultation session, (this is not assessment or therapy, it is a chance for people to ask me questions and for me to briefly start knowing them and also ask questions.  From that consultation session, we will be able to decide what happens next.  I am flexible in that some people may only want to try out 1 session and others will be happy to keep appointments up until we reach their goals.

In Therapy, each session costs;

£50 per hour for individuals.


£55 per hour for couples.


£60 for sex addiction work

Further information

I never forget how difficult it can be for people to ask for help.  I shall treat you as an individual and listen to what you have to say and shall help you to work towards achieving your goals and ultimately to be a happier person in your life and/or relationship.  I often work with humour (when appropriate) - helping to lighten the load.  Laughter can be very healing. :-)  I look forward to meeting you.
