About me

I am a fully qualified Relationship Counsellor and Psychosexual Therapist with over two thousand hours of supervised practice. I have been in practice for over seventeen years. I work in a non-judgmental manner. I am empathetic and appreciate the bravery of clients coming to therapy. I work with issues such as affairs, breakdowns in communication. In my role as a Psychosexual Therapist, I work with issues such as Erectile Dysfunction, Vaginismus and Lack of desire. I tailor make programs of therapy to suit the individuals.

I counsel my clients in a warm and companionate way. I support my clients and see issues from both sides. I help my clients by using the experiences of their relationship to  help them resolve their issues. I believe that its not about finding out who is right or who is wrong, it is about finding a compromise that both parties can agree too.  Our first session will be about getting to know one another and exploring the issues that they are having and helping them to set goals to help resolve these issues.

I do face to face, zoom and telephone counselling.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
