About me

Qualified sex therapist including sex addiction. EMDR therapist for ptsd and relationship counsellor offering therapy for individuals and couples in my private practice. Daytimes and evenings.

Sex therapy for:

  • vaginusmus
  • dyspareunia
  • loss of desire
  • premature ejaculation
  • erectile dysfunction
  • sexual avoidance
  • sexual addiction
  • sexual confusion
  • lack of libido
  • menopause
  • lack of sex education

Sexual difficulties can happen for lots of reasons such as life events, trauma, abuse, menopause, illness, disability, ageing, loss, messages given as children, religion.

After an initial assessment and history an individual programme will be tailored to help you meet your goals. I meet clients regularly and all homework tasks are done at home.

Relationship issues:

  • lack of communication
  • affairs
  • divorce/ separation
  • loss
  • starting again
  • pressure of life

  • lack of fun
