I have thirty years experience working with individuals and couples as a psychotherapist, couple counsellor and psychosexual therapist. I also provide supervision to qualified therapists.
As a couple counsellor and psychoanalytic couple psychotherapist, I see couples, both gay and straight, who may be dealing with issues such as infidelity, loss, infertility, recurring arguments, parenting problems, boredom, lack of communication.
As a sex therapist, I see couples and individuals presenting with a wide range of problems such as lack of interest in sex, painful or unsatisfactory sex, lack of arousal, lack of orgasm, erectile dysfunction, compulsive use of internet porn.
I also see individuals who seek help after a relationship breakdown or because they wish to deal with issues such as anxiety, compulsive behaviour, work difficulties, problems stemming from childhood.
