About me

I am a qualified and experienced Relate trained couple counsellor and psychosexual therapist. I have worked in these roles for the last 30 years and now work from home in private practice in central Ipswich.

Counsellor

I have 30 years experience of working as a qualified Relate trained counsellor. In this role I work with adult couples or individuals who are experiencing a wide variety of problems. These may range from relationship or family issues to personal or work related problems and life events.

Counselling provides an opportunity for you to talk through your worries and concerns in a safe and contained setting, where confidentiality is assured. Together we can explore your needs from counselling and establish a focus of work.

The counselling “process” will help you “step back” from your situation, by talking through your feelings and being heard and understood. This can provide you with greater clarity and perspective about what you are experiencing. You may then feel better equipped to bring about making changes, or reaching decisions that will either take the problem away, or make it more manageable to cope with. In this event you will find yourself moving forward.

Psychosexual Therapist

I am an accredited psychosexual therapist and have specialized in this area of work for the last 20 years. In this role I see individuals or couples, either hetrosexual, same sex or LGBT who are experiencing particular sexual dysfunctions or difficulties.

Here are some reasons why you may be seeking psychosexual therapy:-

* loss of desire   
* erectile dysfunction   
* inorgasmia
* premature ejaculation / delayed ejaculation
* dyspareunia  - painful sex    
* vaginismus

You may be experiencing health related problems, which might be impacting on your sexual functioning. Or you may be finding that some medication or treatment is having an adverse affect upon your sexual interest or performance. In these instances psychosexual therapy can be of help.

Other areas of my work include sexual phobias, sexual addiction or issues around gender. The impact of affairs, childhood sexual abuse or sexual assault can also be reasons for you seeking support through this form of therapy.

Initially I offer a thorough assessment to establish the specific problems you are facing and the impact this may be having upon you individually or upon your relationship. At the end of which, mutual decisions are reached as how best to proceed.
