About me

I am a Psychotherapist and Sex & Relationship Therapist.   I work online, across the UK and Ireland, with individuals, couples, and relationships, to help explore and understand the difficulties they are experiencing.  You may be feeling overwhelmed, isolated, fearful, anxious, or depressed, perhaps you need help to cope with a crisis.  Counselling, psychotherapy and sex therapy can help you to develop a better understanding of yourself and your relationships.

Imitate relationships can move to the bottom of the pile when we are juggling home, work, and families.  Communicating with and understanding our partners can be difficult, we may find ourselves not feeling heard.  Sexual of psychological abuse can leave us feeling overwhelmed by shame, guilt, and anger.  Childhood may impact on our confidence, wellbeing, relationships and beliefs around sex.   Infertility issues can lead to a deep feeling of pain, shame and guilt.  Individuals might look for intimacy outside their primary relationship, the impact of this discovery can be devastating.  Sometimes our bodies let us down, sex issues, for example, vaginismus, loss of desire, erectile difficulties and anxiety around sex or sexuality can cause much distress.  As a Psychotherapist and specialist Sex and Relationship Therapist I can offer you the support you need.

I am registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and The College of Sex and Relationship Therapists (RegCOSRT).  I undertook a training in Psychodynamic and Person Centred Therapy at the University of Hertfordshire.  I then went on to complete a Diploma in Psychodynamic therapy before completing a PGDip in Psychosexual and Relationship Studies accredited by Middlesex University.

I work online with clients in the UK and Ireland and from my private practice in Letchworth in Hertfordshire and Marylebone in London.  Before starting my private practice, I worked for a North London charity offering emotional and relationship therapy, a central London clinic specialising in support, and professional therapeutic training in compulsive sexual behaviour and a Hertfordshire centre specialising in sex therapy.  I also have over 17 years experience in working with individuals and families affected by addiction.

I offer a free no obligation 20 minute phone call to answer any questions you may have. You can also view my website https://www.healingpsychotherapyandcounselling.com

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
