My Approach

Throughout my career I have worked in several fields and draw experience from working as an NHS psychosexual therapist, a drug & alcohol counsellor, school counsellor, recovery worker for a mental health charity and a line support worker in a rape crisis centre.

Provides an opportunity to develop a greater understanding and clarity of your difficulties. Together we can identify ways to improve your daily life by relieving insecurities and ministering to wounds, traumas, vulnerabilities. I will support you in successfully implementing the changes you decide to make. I integrate my knowledge by drawing on elements of different therapeutic approaches – offering a safe place to discuss, explore and address your goals and concerns. Some of the reasons why you might seek help:
Addictions - Drug & Alcohol
Anxiety and depression
‘Stuckness’ and lack of meaning
Personal development and self-esteem concerns
Life stages and crisis
Childhood Trauma

Psychosexual Therapy
Sexual problems are some of the most embarrassing and difficult issues many of us face. My practice is a safe, confidential and supportive environment where individuals or couples can be completely comfortable expressing themselves on their most intimate psychosexual issues. For several years, I worked in the Oxford NHS Sexual Health Clinic as a psychosexual therapist. Through the Rape Crisis Centre I have supported women whose lives had been darkened by rape, domestic violence and sexual abuse. I have successfully treated:

Erectile dysfunction
Rapid or delayed ejaculation
Desire or arousal difficulties
Painful intercourse
Sexual identity
Sexual shame
Compulsive behaviour (Porn/Sex) 
Sexual health
The impact of childhood sexual abuse
Gender and sexual diversities: (LGBT/non-monogamies/kink)

I am passionate about people experiencing sexuality as an integral and joyful part of themselves. I hope to encourage an emphasis on sensuality and pleasure rather than what is a gendered, cultural and social performance. For the client to explore what works best for them and to become more open to having a good-enough sexual experience. At present, I also facilitate retreats and workshops by creating a unique experience for people dealing with psychosexual issues.

Couples Therapy
The essence of every successful relationship is trust and effective communication. I work with individuals and couples to improve both of these qualities in their daily interactions. By facing one another honestly and learning new ways to relate based on our growing understanding of ourselves and our interactions, we find new ways to avoid and minimize conflict, and build a foundation of trust which is the key to resolving future difficulties.
I use the term psychosexual therapy to refer to focused, often time-limited work on particular sexual issues and couples therapy to describe a journey of exploration into the couple’s relationship.

Adolescent Therapy
Young people today may encounter a baffling and perplexing range of issues including self-harming, suicide attempts and idealization, eating disorders; anorexia and bulimia, low self-esteem, bereavement, anxiety, sleep problems, anger, depression, drug and alcohol use, gender identity, sexuality, friendship issues, family separation and academic stress. My previous role as school counsellor in two secondary schools has equipped me to create an environment in which young people feel free to speak openly and honestly about the issues that confront them. That openness is the beginning of healing, and leads to a more perfect sense of self and confidence in achieving a successful, gratifying and fulfilling life.
