Turn around and turn away from where you've been and can no longer reside.
Turn around and turn away from what has ended.
Turn around and face what lies in front of you: the new path, the new destination, the new doors waiting to be opened.

Are you willing to explore your relationships both past and present from a desire to re-connect, deepen and broaden your ability to love yourself and your partner ?

Psychosexual ( SEX) Therapy
Is it time to engage fully in your sexual journey? Would you like to enrich your sexual energy and re-connect with your sexual self ? Have you wished to feel sexually liberated, empowered and be free from sexual shame and guilt ?
Psychosexual therapy is a holistic approach that looks at the body, mind and emotional/erotic desire in union. Sexual energy and creativity can enrich our relationships and deepen our core connection to our self and others. By unpacking and reviewing your Sexual beliefs, sexual values and sexual journey you will become aware of repetitive cycles that have hindered those desires that you have wished for. A fulfilling sexual experience heightens our self-esteem and feel good factor. Shame and the un-conscious unresolved sexual shadow hinders that
fulfillment. Is it not time for change ?
I work ethically with sexual problematic behaviours and psychosexual difficulties whether they are organic, biological or emotional in presentation.
Clients present with issues ranging from concerns with body image, infidelity, confusion of their sexual identity, lack of sexual energy (libido/life force/kundalini), painful intercourse, sexual compulsivity, sexual imagery use and porn addiction, sexually transmitted disease or sexual health concerns and many others.
In recent years I have volunteered at kink / sacred sexuality festivals/ workshops supporting those who wish to explore and share their true sexual identity without fear of shame, guilt or persecution.
Clients present with a wide range of symptoms relating to :
Dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
Sexual fear and Anxiety
Sexual boundaries and Consent
Hypo or Hyperarousal
Problematic sexual compulsions
and many others.
Sexual abuse and sexual violence can have a deeply disturbing effect on relationships. Internalised shame and guilt can caste a debilitating shadow on self-esteem and can block the pleasure/arousal cycle. Many of my clients have felt freedom by talking through and acknowledging the UNWANTED sexual experiences they received. By sensitively and considerately bringing these experiences out into the open we can process the feelings for a more fulfilling sexual life and lifestyle that is free of triggering behaviours and flashbacks.
Please visit the page titled Psychosexual therapy to gain a broader understanding of my work.
My career in therapy began as an Integrative counsellor. Integrative counselling is a model of therapy that utilises many models of counselling to aid clients during the process of emotional re-balancing, healing, and intuitive mental well-being.
I focus holistically as we work through life and lifestyle choices. The initial sessions are concentrated on discovering why you have arrived where you have and then building a supportive relationship where you will feel emotionally held and secure.
Here is a broad range of issues that I have worked well with over the years :
Couples (relational) Counselling
Your relation-ship has sailed into stormy seas, let me help you navigate towards a brighter and calmer shore.
Unfortunately, most couples seek to be counselled when it is nearly too late. I would like to reassure you that seeking outside professional support is not an admittance of failure but an act of empowerment to enhance and grow your self-esteem and strengthen your relationship.
Couples Counselling / relationship therapy is solution based that helps to resolve difference by developing a new language of communication, enhancing empathy, mediating between wants and needs, setting goals with home tasks and defining the common ground between the disenfranchised couple. We work towards re-building bridges and re- discovering the pzazz that has been lost in the relationship.
Together we can explore your concerns in a non-judgemental way and put in place resources to help you to heal and re-connect. This is a challenging process that will unearth vulnerabilities and guide you towards your hopes for the future
