Are you struggling with grief, sadness and depression? Has anxiety and fear left you feeling powerless with love, sex, life and career? Counselling/ therapy supports you to grieve your losses, cope with anxieties and depression and aids you to transform into the person you would wish to become.
Has your relationship 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 sexual or sensual concerns or trauma affect your sexual performance, levels of passion and desire? Has your sexual energy become dormant or feels 'off'? Has your sensual or sexual identity become an internal battlefield as you struggle to fit in with societal norms, do you feel stressed when confronted by erotic themes and avant-garde sensual/sexual environments or experiences?
Psychosexual therapy supports you to understand your physical and emotional responses to sex and intimacy and how the current social and cultural environments you may inhabit can inform those reactions. With your consent, we may look at past sexual traumas and experiences and the effect on you and your relationship with yourself and others.
Psychosexual therapy can include home exercises to explore the senses by offering resources to support sensual and sexual re-education. This is a well thought through model that places the client's wishes and agency at the heart of their recovery programme.
Why Choose Me
Over the years I have worked with a vast array of issues ranging from mental health concerns (depression, anxiety, anger, stress, suicidal ideation, grief and loss ) to complex sexual and violent trauma, attachment issues raised by pre/post-adoption/abandonment/bereavement trauma and the multi-faceted range of Psychosexual and relationship presentations.
Psychosexual and relationship concerns can arise from the internal struggles that come with the multitude of sexual orientations or identities that fall under the umbrella of sexuality.
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.
Identifying as a Gender and Sexuality diverse therapist my qualifications are constantly upgraded and updated with various pieces of training and continuing personal development (CPD) as overseen by my professional supervisors who are also accredited members of 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.
Consultations are held either face-to-face, by phone/ Zoom or through my dedicated online virtual room hosted on Psychologies Today. There is then a 48-hour 'cooling-off' period for you to feel into whether you wish to entrust me to support you on your therapeutic journey.
After agreeing to work together we will look at diaries to schedule appointments. I would advocate sessions to be held weekly as regularity provides a solid foundation to push on from, but I also appreciate weekly sessions may not be an option for many financially.
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".

Why do I feel so depressed, fearful and sad whilst in a relationship?
Why has she/he/they/ turned to porn and away from our loving relationship?
What do I do with this yearning for freedom and change post lockdown?
Why are we fighting like cat and dog?
Where is intimacy in our relationship, I don't want a sexless life!
Where did our supportive and loving relationship go?
For many couples, the stress and anxiety of being together 24/7 has felt like a burden. Couples counselling is a space to explore and let go of locked-in resentments. You have to enter the fire to fashion a new relationship and embolden those hopes and dreams.
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 one of the most troubling of client presenting issues. Statements like 'living a lie', 'could not be me' ' 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 closeted sexual identity is a process that should be managed with great care and over a timely period.
The therapeutic space is for you to make sense of the internal emotional shifts and to explore all the feelings that have and will arise once pandora's box is opened. Living a lie is no longer an option.

In bygone days alms were for the poor. A monetary handout, support, education or housing to help the poor is an act of virtue.
Many men are currently feeling homeless and hopeless, feeling under attack within society's slow shift to a feminine (equality) balanced philosophy.
The Media's focus on men as perpetrators, warmongers, and bullies has led to men withdrawing from society and feeling worthless with suicide rates skyrocketing ( sub 25-year-old a 24% increase during 2018). Having once been valued as protectors and breadwinners. Many men agonize over where their role is in modern society.
There are various men's groups; Journeyman, tantric brotherhood, unmasked man etc that are ongoing and vibrant groups that support men's work.
It really isn't a 'battle of the sexes' but it may feel like that for you.
