About me

MODERN RELATIONSHIP & SEX THERAPY 

Connecting with people and being intimate with another can stir up all sorts of anxieties and fears, or compound problems that may already exist. Struggling with relational or sexual difficulties, or navigating the complexities of trying find our sexual place in the world and becoming comfortable with who we are can be challenging.

As as psychodynamic psychosexual therapist my aim is to help you improve emotional and physical intimacy either in the relationship with yourself or your connections with others, and to help you overcome or manage any sexual difficulties you're having. Whatever your gender, sexual orientation, or relationship status, as a sex therapist I can support you to feel more at ease with being intimate. 

I am a sex-positive, kink-knowledgeable psychotherapist and am familiar working with a range of relationship models and gender dynamics. I work with people from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds, including individuals from straight, queer, poly and kink communities, sex workers, and people who identify across the gender spectrum.

I offer sex therapy to individuals and those in a variety of relationship configurations to help with a range of difficult emotions, life-changing decisions, complicated relationship situations and personal identity issues. 

I provide a non-judgemental, inclusive, and affirming space in the heart of the City of London and online.  An initial appointment offers you the opportunity to talk about what's on your mind and find out more about how psychosexual psychotherapy can help you.

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.

BPC

The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.
