About me

Some of the most common reasons for attending psychosexual therapy might include anxiety around sexual performance, unreliable erections, premature or delayed ejaculation, painful intercourse, difficulty achieving orgasm and loss of desire. Relationship issues that I can help with include desire discrepancy, conflict, communication difficulties and discernment. Perhaps there has been an affair, one partner feels betrayed, or you would like to explore a specific sexual interest such as a kink or fetish or navigate opening up a previously monogamous relationship. However, you do not have to be experiencing any specific difficulty to benefit from therapy – it can also simply provide a safe space to explore your sexuality and become more comfortable in your own body without any shame or judgement about who you are, how you feel and what you enjoy.

My therapeutic approach is progressive, relaxed and client-led – there is a thorough initial assessment which takes 1-2 sessions, where I will ask questions and hold space for you to talk about the issue and how it affects you. We’ll collaborate on a treatment plan – working at your pace, focusing on the things that matter to you. My style tends to lend itself to those who are new to therapy, who may feel apprehensive about attending or discussing intimate and personal details about themselves or the relationship, and those who have previously felt excluded from accessing therapy due to cost or because they have not found anyone who reflects their own working-class background or culture.

I also offer single session therapy, where we can explore a specific issue or concern in depth, during an extended, one-off 80min appointment. You'll leave the session with a comprehensive treatment plan as well as resources and practical exercises tailored to your concern, and the opportunity for a free 15min check-in appointment at a later date.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Clinical Sexology and Relationship Therapy, which conveys eligibility to practice as a sex and relationship therapist and I hold full COSRT registration. My training was pluralistic, which means I work integratively rather than sticking to one particular branch of therapy. Additionally I have a Master's degree in Psychology.

As well as these qualifications, I also have a BSc in Nursing, with 10 years experience working in triage, surgery, gynecology and urological nursing, as well as in contraception and sexual health. This makes me well positioned to help clients whose sexual or relationship difficulties may be compounded by neurodiversity, disability, medical complexity or who are simply interested in learning more about their body and sexuality.
