About Me

I am a Relate trained counsellor and sex therapist with over 16 years’ experience. I specialise in helping those with relationship difficulties, intimacy issues and porn and sex addiction. I provide a secure and non-judgmental space – somewhere that you can feel safe to communicate your feelings and identify problems you are facing.

My Experience

Couples Counselling

Counselling as a couple gives you both a chance to explore your relationship in a neutral space. Here, you can look at the present situation, think about what you’d like to change, and begin to move forward.

Individual Counselling

Sometimes it’s helpful to explore things independently of your partner. There’s nothing wrong with taking a step back and looking at things as an individual. I provide a non-judgmental, practical and positive space to do this.

I work with couples and individuals affected by issues such as:

    Abuse, affairs and betrayal, anxiety, arguments, bereavement, commitment, communication difficulties, depression, domestic violence, feelings of loss when children leave home, issues with stepfamilies, loss of identity, low self-esteem, parenting, past relationship issues that are affecting the present one, retirement concerns, separation and divorce, sexual disagreements, sexuality and intimacy problems, cultural differences

Sex and Relationship Therapy

Sexual problems and relationship difficulties are often connected. It is not uncommon for couples to be unhappy with their sexual relationship. I help couples and individuals to explore why these problems have come about and work towards resolving them.

I work with couples and individuals affected by issues such as:

    Difficulties reaching orgasm (anorgasmia), delayed/premature ejaculation, difficulties arising from sexual abuse, erectile difficulties, internet addiction, lack of sexual information, loss of desire, pain during intercourse (dyspareunia), vaginismus

Sex Addiction Therapy

Some sexual activity can feel ‘out of control’ to a point where, despite trying to stop, you are unable to do so. Many people struggle to deal with these issues alone, even when they are determined to change their behaviour.

Equally, discovering that your partner’s sexual behaviour is out of control can be devastating and isolating. I can help both parties through this experience.

I work with couples and individuals affected by issues such as:

    Compulsive viewing of pornography, chat lines, visiting prostitutes, visiting sex cinemas, exhibitionism, voyeurism, compulsive masturbation, fetishes, anonymous sex, telephone sex, illegal sexual practices

Online Counselling

I offer online counselling as a secure and convenient way of getting the help you need. The service is discreet and can be accessed anywhere that you feel comfortable using a computer, tablet or smartphone. Zoom is a fully encrypted, secure platform for online counselling sessions, so you can be confident that what you say will remain completely private.

 

My Approach

Perhaps your relationship is going through a rough patch – you and your partner are arguing and you can’t find that ‘spark’ you once had. Maybe you feel stuck in a relationship that’s not good enough to stay but not bad enough to leave? I help individuals and couples to improve their relationships by facilitating change.

Deciding to start counselling can be challenging; my aim is to make the process as accessible and comfortable as possible.  As an experienced counsellor, I am able to draw upon different psychological approaches to help my clients.

I am a Relate trained BACP Accredited counsellor who cares passionately about people and relationships. I’ve been a counsellor for many years.

My service is professional, flexible and highly confidential. The first appointment will be assessment based to allow you to get to know me, and for me to see whether I can help you. You will find me non-judgmental, practical, positive and caring. My priority is making a difference for my clients.
