I work with couples and individuals on all types of relationship problems. I have been awarded the degree of Doctor of Couple Psychotherapy by the Tavistock Relationships, London and the University of East London, having undertaken original research in the treatment of couple/sexual relationships . A former Trustee of COSRT and former Secretary of the Council of the British Society for Sexual Medicine, I have helped organise and presented at many national and international conferences.
