Extended Profile

My nursing career spans over 30 years, it is within this role that I began to develop my expertise for women who had sexuality and sexual difficulties due to gynaecological problems and cancer. I extended this across other cancer sites writing and contributing to management of sexual difficulties following treatment for pelvic cancer.  In 2012 I decided to formalise my interest in this field and trained as a psychosexual therapist within a private clinic (The Leger Clinic – Doncaster). The clinic adopts a integrated approach combining medical and psychological approaches to achieve the best outcomes for our clients.

I am skilled in all areas of psychosexual therapy including male and female sexual difficulties and dysfunctions (interest/desire & arousal disorders, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, orgasm difficulties,  sexual pain disorders); sexuality, orientation and gender identity issues; out of control sexual behaviour/sexual addiction; difficulties due to trauma, especially sexual trauma. The list is endless as each of my clients are unique and bring with them their individual difficulties and issues, therefore treatment plans are implemented with the individual in mind.

I have also gained a national reputation and expertise on the effects of cancer diagnosis and treatments on a persons sexuality and sex life. I present across the country at scientific and educational meetings for health professionals, and at patient/advocacy groups; I write national guidance and education frameworks to address sexual issues, write patient information including web sites and booklets and give expert advice for various cancer charities (Macmillan, Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust, Target Ovarian Cancer).
