About me

I am an integrative Psychosexual, relationship and trauma therapist, which means I use lots of different models and techniques to help you work through the changes you want to make. As a trauma therapist I am aware that lots of people have felt some sort of trauma in their lives and this can affect us physically, psychologically and sexually. 

Think of integrative therapy as a big box of tools that can be used when relevant, to adapt to your needs and the way that you learn about yourself, rather than a one size fits all approach. Everyone is different and we all learn in different ways, so my approach is adaptable to help you make the changes you want to see. 

I often use visuals and analogies to help you make sense of what you are feeling and I always use humour to help break the ice. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an MSc in Contemporary Psychosexual Therapies, and I am registered with the College Of Sex and Relationship Therapists (COSRT) I am bound by their code of ethics.

I am also a trauma-informed psychosexual therapist. When I worked as an advocate in a rape crisis charity, I recognised that many of my clients faced difficulties with intimacy and sex, and I realised that the slightest platonic touch could be triggering for some people. 

I am a GSRD therapist and trans advocate. Whether your issue is about solo sex or sex with a partner/s, I'm here to listen and support you.

I have a Diploma in Animal Assisted Therapy. 

I have a Diploma in Body Language and health coaching, which allows me to help you feel at ease in your therapy sessions. I can also teach you about changing your body language to help you feel more confident and relaxed and I can provide techniques to help you speak in front of groups or at work. Body language is enormously helpful for people with anxiety.

I have 10 years of experience in coaching behaviour change in a person centred way to make different life choices to change either a psychical or psychological symptom. 

I'm a Mental Health First Aider with Mental Health First Aid England and experienced in delivering mental health interventions within the NHS.

I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in a lot of my work, to help you to identify thoughts and beliefs about events and help you change them. 

I am also a rewind practitioner which is extremely beneficial for PTSD.
