I specialise in Sex and Relationship Therapy and offer talking therapy for couples and individuals with sexual problems. These include vaginismus, painful sex, difficulty achieving orgasm, loss of desire for sex, erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. I have particular experience in working with those impacted by past sexual trauma, abuse or assault. I am specifically trained and qualified to work with sex and porn addiction(s). I also work with partners of sex/porn addicts who are perhaps struggling with their partner’s addiction, working with the distress, betrayal, shock and trauma they may be experiencing.

I believe each person is the expert about themselves and my role as a therapist is to be a companion on your journey of self-understanding. My hope is that you can leave our sessions feeling listened to and understood.

Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. Maybe you’re looking for psychotherapy for yourself, or for someone you care about. In the 34 years I’ve been a practicing psychotherapist I know that people usually try a variety of things before they finally reach out and contact a professional. It feels awful, frustrating and overwhelming to feel stuck. One of the things I love about my work is coming alongside someone and helping them find their unique way of becoming free from that stuck place.

If you're highly sensitive, an introvert, or a deep thinker and feeler, I'm here to support you to connect with yourself and the world again. There is a way for us to heal the parts of you that are in pain and connect to the compassion and creativity that already exists inside you. Together, we’ll explore why parts of you are acting in extreme ways or overwhelming you with emotions. We'll make sense of the difficult experiences you’ve been through and reconnect with compassion, clarity and a sense of calm.

Hello there, thanks for checking me out. Individuals: Life’s toll can leave us with hurts and regrets. Sometimes we end up so wounded everything loses its shine. Life becomes colourless. We struggle with trauma, anxiety or low mood. By creating a constructive conversation with me, we can work towards healing. Couples: I use emotionally focused therapy to help create a connection between spouses and partners. I explore hurtful cycles of interaction to change them. Together we develop positive cycles to heal the relationship. Families: I specialise in young adults/students and their parents; blended families; alienation; child contact

I view therapy as a collaborative space where one can be seen, heard, and understood. Our work together will support you to delve into the depths of the experiences you wish to explore, whether from your past, present, or anticipated future. I will pose gentle questions, offer sensitive reflections, and hold a confidential and compassionate space for the emotions and vulnerabilities that arise. Together, we will learn to care for the neglected parts of yourself, explore patterns you may find unhelpful, and listen to your inner needs and feelings, fostering a space for acceptance and growth.

I believe mental health is just as important as physical health, the two are intricately bound together. In a non-judgemental, warm and supportive environment, I will help you to understand where the problems you are experiencing have arisen. We will work out why they have become so problematic and hard to deal with. I will help you to find strategies to cope better and tools to help you unpick patterns and to move on in your life, feel stronger and more content. As with any problem, the sooner it is acknowledged, the sooner you can begin your recovery. This is true of emotional and physical issues, as well as practical.

I also specialise in trauma recovery, treating healthcare professionals, and working with English speaking immigrants. I work from multiple affirming perspectives, including Health at Every Size, neurodiversity affirming, disability affirming, and fat-positive perspectives.

I work with whatever my clients bring into the therapy room and have a particular interest in personal identities and how my clients wish to be seen and accepted in the world. This includes identities around chronic illness and disability, as well as around gender, sexuality and relationship diversity. I do not work as a blank mirror but instead use my knowledge and training to create a dialogue between me and my clients.
