Extended Profile

Is there a sexual difficulty affecting your life? Does this difficulty affect your ability to form new relationships? Is it affecting your current relationship? Have medical causes been eliminated, or at least identified, but the problem remains? Are you confused about your sexuality? It can be embarrassing to talk to a stranger about the intimate details of your sex life but please be assured that sexual and intimacy problems happen to many people at some time in their lives. As a qualified psychosexual therapist I have undertaken specialist training to work with these issues in a non-judgmental way. This is a talking therapy aimed at helping clients come to a better understanding about how their bodies work and the impact that psychological concerns or worries may have on sexual desire or performance.
My training has included an awareness of the implications that illness, injury, disability and medication can have on intimacy, desire and performance. These issues need to be addressed before the psychological impact of sexual problems can be determined and understood. In some cases the problem may be entirely medical and therapy cannot provide a cure. It can, however, help you come to terms with the effects of illness and medication and to find alternative ways for intimacy to become part of your relationship once more.
I have undertaken further specialist training with Pink Therapy to work with sexual and gender diversity and I work with individuals and couples, whatever their sexual orientation, gender identity or relationship status.
As an integrative counsellor I draw on my awareness of the various theoretical approaches and schools of psychotherapy to tailor therapy to suit a client’s needs. The relationship between you, the client, and me, as the therapist, is an essential part of the therapy. I believe that this is achieved by providing a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space within which to work, where trust built between us enables you to work with the potentially painful and debilitating issues that you may be experiencing.
