Extended Profile

Most people have anxieties about relationships. intimacy and sexual difficulties at some point in their lives.  Relationship and psychosexual therapy offers the opportunity to discuss your concerns with a therapist specially trained in this area of work in a safe, supportive and confidential environment. I have also worked for many years as a clinical nurse specialist in sexual and reproductive health within the NHS.

I am currently the manager and service provider for the psychosexual service at a large inner London NHS Foundation Trust and I have a private practice in Highgate, North London and Islington. I am a vertical module tutor at University College, London Medical School and provide supervision for psychosexual therapists and medical clinicians within the NHS and privately.

I see a very varied client group for both short and longer term therapy. I work with diverse gender identities and sexual orientations, cultures, religious beliefs, and social backgrounds. I see both people who are in relationships and those who are not, working towards an agreed, and realistic goal for therapy. This goal is fluid and can be modified as work progresses.

I am happy for you to contact me by email or phone. You can also look at my website http://www.highgatetherapy.co.uk

Relationship and psychosexual therapy is a talking therapy but you may be asked to practise some helpful practical techniques in the privacy of your own home. Sessions are usually weekly and the number of session required is variable and can range from ten to twenty five sessions. Numbers of sessions are influenced by the pace at which the client feels comfortable to work.
