I have significant experience in working in the NHS with the Sexual Health teams, support the clients and patients with psychosexual issues. 

I am able to draw on a number of modalities that allows me to find the best way of working with you.. I am interested in the whole person/s and will often encourage you to look at your overall lifestyle, which may assist with the emotional and psychological changes that are happening.

I offer time and space for you to set your own goals and to decide in which direction you wish to work. I will share with you my observations and insights to help clarify your thoughts helping you to gain new perspectives and understanding. Holding the belief that we are the expert on ourselves, I aim to walk along side you while we explore together your life puzzles enabling you to gain the freedom to find a choice in your path, at your own pace. 

I work with individuals and those in relationships and I have a particular interest in Psychosexual therapy. I offer a safe space  to explore sexual problems, difficulties and worries, whether they are organic or emotional in presentation. We can begin to bridge the gap between you and your sexual self whether you are in a relationship or as an individual. 

Psychosexual Therapy is a form counselling which pays attention to the many issues that may arise for individuals and couples in the area of sex and relationships. The space provides opportunity to explore puzzles and difficulties and how they impact us.

Sexual difficulties can arise from a physical issue or from psychological and psychosocial issues. Either way, Sex therapy can be a helpful place to start. Sometimes, there may be a need for me to refer you to your GP or to other relevant professionals. For example, if you need a prescription for Viagra and any blood tests that may help with formulating a treatment plan for you.

Common sexual complaints include:
Pain during sex (Vaginismus, Dyspareunia)
Menopause and the effects on self and sexual function
Erectile difficulties
Loss of desire
Relationship and communication problems
Difficulties with arousal and orgasm
Trauma and the impact of unwanted sexual experiences
Sexual compulsion and phobia
Sexual difficulties as a result of illness and medication

This list is not exhaustive.

I welcome difference in my practice and I am a poly affirmative and kink aware practitioner.
