Extended Profile

At present I am only able to accept professional or self-referrals related to clients registered as patients of the Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust (London & Sutton).
I offer individual or couple therapy to men and women whose sexual lives have been adversely affected by cancer and its treatment. I use an integrative approach to therapy that embraces the use of biomedical strategies, devices (as appropriate) alongside cognitive behavioural (including sensate focus as a framework) and couple approaches.
I am also a clinical academic conducting post-doctoral research focused on the development of clinical assessment instruments and interventions for female sexual difficulties arising from cancer treatment.
I am secretary to the International Society for Sexuality & Cancer (ISSC) board and a regular speaker at national and international conferences on the subject of cancer and sexuality. I am research active and publish regularly on this topic.
