About me

I am an experienced Relationship and Psychosexual Psychotherapist and EFS & ESSM Certified Psycho-Sexologist trained at Tavistock Relationships in London and in France (Paris). I specialise in working with adults experiencing problems in their relationships and/or their sex lives. I offer weekly 50 minute sessions in a safe, confidential, and containing environment: I am available to all couples and individuals, married or unmarried, straight or gay, from any cultural, racial, or ethnic background. Some of the couples I see are seeking help that will enable them to stay together; others are exploring ways of limiting the pain of parting. I also provide therapy to individuals who wish to discuss problems in their relationships with others.

I attach the highest importance to the confidentiality of my clients and abide by the COSRT and UKCP codes of ethics.

I undertake regular clinical supervision and a programme of continued professional development (CPD).

I am an accredited member of the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT), a UKCP full Clinical Psychotherapist (College for Sexual and Relationship Psychotherapy, CSRP), a graduate member of the British Psychological Society (BPS), and I also belong to the European Society for Sexual Medicine (ESSM). 

In addition to my private practice until July 2022, I was a visiting clinician at Tavistock Relationships. I also worked in 2020 as a Psychosexual Therapist in an NHS Sexual Problems Clinic in London.

Please note that I am working online.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Diploma in Psychosexual Therapy (awarded with Distinction), an MA in Couple and Individual Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, both awarded by Tavistock Relationships, London. I have also completed the equivalent of a BSc in Clinical Psychology (Licence de Psychologie) from the University of Paris VIII. I am also an EFS/ESSM‐Certified Psychosexologist (ECPS).
