My Approach

I specialise in issues concerning sexual or relationship difficulties, including issues of sexually compulsive behaviour ("sexual addiction").

About Me

"Find a way - find yourself." I like to help people find realistic ways to deal with distressing issues in their lives, but also to help people find themselves, shaking off the expectations and controls that others may attempt to impose.
Clients say that I am someone with whom it is possible to be at ease and to speak openly about troubling matters. I aim to provide a consistent and reliable resource which can help you to understand and accept yourself better and to gain a greater sense of control over your life.
Although able to deal with a wide range of issues, I specialise in dealing with sexual and relationship problems. Great distress can be caused by matters such as erectile dysfunction or premature ejaculation in males, difficulties in receiving penetration in females, or issues such as a loss of desire, or inability to reach orgasm. There is no shame and much to be gained from speaking with a qualified and experienced psychosexual psychotherapist to discover ways to respond to and hopefully overcome such issues.
Similarly, if you are afflicted by compulsive or addictive sexual behaviour, or if you are in a relationship with such a person, an experienced and sensitive therapist can help you gain much in terms of developing self-understanding and an increased sense of self-confidence in your life and your relationships.
My qualifications include a Masters in Counselling & Psychology, a second Masters in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, a Diploma in Psychosexual Psychotherapy and a Certificate in Psychosexual Studies. I also have a Diploma in Relationship Counselling, a Diploma in Sexual Addiction Counselling, and a Postgraduate Certificate in the Supervision of Counselling.
