About me

Specialising in men’s issues, including sex problems (erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, sex addiction / sexual compulsions, and problematic pornography use / porn addiction); sexual abuse; trauma and PTSD; intrusive sexual thoughts; anger issues; anxiety; depression; adjusting to a physical health condition; relationship issues; stress; sexuality and more. I am a chartered clinical psychologist and EMDR therapist with over 15 years NHS experience of working in mental health and now work full time in private practice online.

I have worked with many men over the years, to help them gain a better understanding of themselves, improve their lives and become the men they want to be. As a psychologist, I am trained in more than 1 type of therapy and integrate approaches in order to best help the person I am working with. This could include exploring how the current issues might have developed, learning practical strategies to help overcome the issues, processing past trauma, connecting more with oneself, and providing a confidential space where change can happen.

Choosing the right therapist for you can be difficult, so I offer a FREE 15 minute consultation either by video call or telephone so we can discuss your issues further and it also gives you the chance to ask any questions you might have. I try to be as flexible as I can with appointments, with some clients choosing weekly, others fortnightly or as and when to fit around your schedule. See my website for more details about what I can offer and then send me an email, text message or call to arrange your free consultation.
