About

I help vulnerable people understand and manage their sexuality and relationships. This includes women of all ages, and people of any gender with cognitive disability or neuro-difference. I also build capacity in the families and carers of people with disability, around issues relating to sexuality and relationships. Please note: I no longer work with individual men or offer couples relationship therapy, sorry.
I'm a sexologist with a specialty in disability - I work with individuals directly to build their knowledge and understanding of their rights and responsibilities regarding sexuality and relationships, and I do the same for the people who care for them. I also help parents find their confident positive parenting style to best support their kids.
If you are anxious or out of your depth about issues relating to sexuality - for yourself, or the person you care for - drop me a line, I support people with disability of all genders, plus parents, carers and neurotypical women. I don't work with individual men or offer couples relationship therapy, sorry.
