About me

Thanks for visiting my site -- I hope that you will find the help you need here.

I have helped many couples and individuals in over 25 years of working as a Therapist with Relate, NHS and in private practice. I work in a specialised field and this has enabled me to have in depth knowledge and experience in the area of families, relationships and sexual relationships. Sex therapy and sex and porn addiction are areas where I have specialist expertise. i work with both addicts and their partners , both individually and in couple recovery.

Some of the relationship problems I work with are:

  • affairs
  • parenting and step-parenting
  • communication problems
  • sexual problems including loss of desire
  • family issues including parenting teenagers
  • separation and divorce
  • loss
  • trauma

If the problem you are experiencing does not appear here -- do call and I will let you know how I can help.

Being in a relationship is one of the most fulfilling and healthy parts of life, but when a relationship experiences difficulties, life can feel very stressful, provoke anxiety and depression. The fact that you are reading this probably means that you care about your relationship and want to address and work through the problems that you are having --which is great. Or it may be that a relationship has ended and you are wanting to understand why, to rebuild your confidence and self esteem so that you can go forward.

If you have a sexual problem --whether it is a specific sexual disorder or a lack of interest in sex, I can help you through tried and tested Sex Therapy Programmes.I can work in conjunction with your medical professional to resolve the issue.

Sex addiction, porn addiction and sexual compulsivity are increasingly common presenting problems and, not only have I got extensive experience of working with these problems, I have developed and deliver the UK's first Accredited Diploma Course to equip other therapists to work with this problem. I work with the individual on their addiction and with their partners to help them with their sense of betrayal and trauma.

My approach is an integration of psychodynamic, systemic and CBT. I also work using EMDR in conjunction with my CBT and Integrative therapy to work through past and current trauma.

I work face to face in Cheshire, or using Skype or email exchange which is particularly useful for people living outside the UK.

I provide training in the following areas in the Manchester area:

Diploma in working with Sex Addiction (CPCAB Accredited)

  • Working with couple relationships
  • Working with sexual problems
