Central & North London NW1 & Central Brighton BN1 XX sessions via Zoom/Skype/Telephone until C.19 restrictions are lifted XX
BACP & CoSRT
I offer a free consultation to be held over skype/ zoom or telephone. The consultation is to hear of your concerns and whether I can offer you the support that you require and answer any questions that you may have.
It's also a great idea to 'feel into' whether we may be a good therapeutic fit. After all, a good therapist should offer you the support and resources to change your life for the better, so choose wisely.
All sessions are held via Skype or Zoom until the government advises face to face sessions can be held with safe- distancing guidelines.
Covid 19 and 'lockdown' is crushing hope and joy. Many are grieving their future and stress as what a future may look like. Others are anxious with their relationships and finding their partner intolerable with so much time spent together.
The pandemic has raised fears which invariably spread through the body like COVID 19, into the emotional, behavioural, sexual and spiritual aspects of our lives. Is it time to fight back by accessing resources and exercises to battle this all-engulfing virus?
For many years I have weaved together Counselling, Psychosexual (sex) therapy & Couples counselling to support clients to make sense of, transform and heal from the myriad of complex emotional and spiritual concerns that affect our day to day emotional and happiness.

What's hampering your desire for life?
Are you struggling with grief, sadness and depression? Has anxiety and fear contorted your soul that you feel powerless with love, life and career? Counselling/ therapy is to support you to grieve your losses, cope with anxieties and depression and transform you into the person that you wish to become.
Has your relation-ship hit the rocks? Couples counselling/ marriage guidance can support your relationship to sail those stormy emotional seas and bring you to a calmer shore.
Do you have sexual or sensual concerns that are affecting your sexual performance or desire? Has your sexual energy become dormant or dysfunctional in some way?
Psychosexual health and Psychosexual therapy encompass the body, mind, brain and heart, as well as the social and cultural environment. We explore current and historic sexual issues in terms of their therapeutic meaning and potential, rather than as ‘dysfunction’. It includes sexual education, information and self-help tools. I support clients within a therapeutic relationship to rediscover themselves sexually and to develop a more conscious sexual self-esteem.
I have supported clients from the NHS, various community-based charities and through my private practice in Mornington Crescent, Camden Town, Central London NW1 & Central Brighton BN1.
Why Choose Me
Over the years I have worked with issues ranging from extreme mental health (depression, anxiety, anger, stress, suicidal ideation, grief and loss ) to complex sexual and violent traumas, attachment issues around adoption/abandonment/bereavement trauma and the multi-faceted range of Psychosexual and relationship presentations.
The Psychosexual and relationship concerns can arise from the behavioural aspect of erectile or problematic body responses, the misuse of porn, libido issues or the multitude of sexual identity and paraphilias of BDSM, Kink, fetishists, voyeurism etc.
As an Integrative Counsellor and Psychosexual & Relationship therapist, I weave together effective and proven models of therapy to support clients with whatever issues are affecting them. Some clients and couples have complex needs and come from complex backgrounds and so need a complex approach.
Identifying as a Gender and Sexuality diverse therapist I have added specialist pieces of training and accrued experience of working outside of the heteronormative communities with those that struggle with sexuality, gender, identity and orientation concerns within or outside of their chosen relationship make-up.
My qualifications are constantly upgraded and updated with continuing personal development (CPD) as overseen by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), and The College of Sex and Relationship Therapists (CoSRT).
You are welcome to impulse call, I would hope to return your call within 6 hours if I am otherwise engaged.
Consultations are held either by phone/ Skype. The consultation is an opportunity to talk through any questions that you may have concerning the way I work, my expertise and the issues that are concerning you or your relationship.
After agreeing to work together we will look at diaries to schedule appointments. I would hope for sessions to be held weekly as regularity provides a solid foundation to push on from, but I also appreciate that weekly session may not be an option for many.
Sessions are conducted via Skype until the current pandemic has passed.
I have worked with many clients who have described their sessions with me as feeling "supportive and safe". Others have found me to be both "knowledgeable and professional in my approach".
Coupled clients have commented:
Previous and current clients come from diverse sexual and gendered backgrounds (LGBTQI+).

Blog : Sex and Identity
Philip Schofield will be seen as 'brave' for 'coming out'. And his wife may be seen as courageous for supporting him. Others may view him as deceitful, secretive and cowardly.
Sexual identity is by far the most troubling of client presenting issues. Statements like 'living a lie', 'could not be myself' ' hiding my true identity' are common and incongruent to the desire and emotional focus of many people in this position.
The inner turmoil of 'coming out' and how to navigate a shift in sexual identity as seen by others is a process that should be managed with great care and over a timely period.
Whether you are the partner of, the child of, or any other related parties to the subject, your world has also shifted.
Therapy is a space for you to make sense of that emotional shift and to explore all the feelings that may hit you like an avalanche as you navigate a world space that will never be the same again.
Are you horrified with the BBC report on 'seduction boot camps' and 'the game'?
Why are CIS gendered males turning to such extremes as 'game' or towards incel websites and forums?
How do you feel as a male that these guys are giving the rest of us a bad name by intimidating and abusing our sisters/aunts/cousins/nieces/mothers and grandmothers and daughters not forgetting any non-binary souls or those that identify as tri?
Do males have a 'right' to sex. Ask yourself where this entitlement comes from and how to develop a more conscious way of meeting those that you are attracted to.

It use to be that alms were for the poor. A monetary handout, support, education or housing to help the poor as an act of virtue.
Many men are currently feeling homeless and hopeless, feeling under attack within societies slow shift to a feminine (equality) balanced philosophy.
The Media focus on men as perpetrators, warmongers and bullies have led to men withdrawing from society and feeling worth-less with suicide rates skyrocketing ( sub 25-year-old a 24% increase 2018). Having once been valued as protectors and bread-winners for men there is now a loss of a role in society...or that's how it could be perceived.
Search for a counsellor or therapist to support your anxiety that as men we are 'not good enough'. It really isn't a 'battle of the sexes' but it may feel like that for you.
