Hi, I am a BACP registered counsellor and a specialist in psychosexual therapy (COSRT Accredited)
I offer counselling for a wide range of issues: loss, bereavement, depression, anxiety, abuse, low confidence or self esteem, health or body issues. Sometimes the issues might be broader; for example decision making; a dissatisfaction with life; feeling like you are out of control or just wanting to make sense of something.
I also work as a sex therapist for the NHS and privately. This means that I work with people who have ANY kinds of sexual difficulties (erection problems, ejaculatory issues, pain for women, low libidos and diminished desire) or have issues that they would like to explore around sex. I see women, men and couples. I also see couples to explore any issues within the relationship apart from sex.
I am very interested in existential theory and work to a humanistic integrative model. I offer a safe and confidential space. Please don't hesitate to call if you have any questions. I see people weekly although sometimes for sex therapy less frequently.
I have over two decades of experience in sexual health, HIV, and have a wealth of experience working with gay men, sexual compulsion, drug use, and self esteem.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists
COSRT is the UK’s leading membership organisation for therapists specialising in sexual and relationship issues.
All members must abide by their Code of Ethics and the performance of accredited members is regularly monitored.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
