About me and my therapy practice

I provide affordable, unbiased and confidential psychotherapy for individuals and couples in Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire and London.

My therapeutic approach is integrative and incorporates elements of Person-centred therapy, Psychodynamic theory, Gestalt and Imago therapies and a systemic approach. I work with each and every client in a way that is right for you.

After completing my BSc (Hons) in Psychology, I qualified with the London Diploma in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy. I also hold a Certificate in Counselling Skills and an HNC in Early Childhood Studies with extensive study in child/parental relationships and attachment. I am committed to on-going personal and professional development and have attended a number of courses and seminars in the areas of Psychology, Counselling and Sexuality. I have also completed specialist training on working with sexual minorities including the LGBT(Q) community.

I have spent time working with charities and organisations specialising in the reintegration of sex offenders into the community and the support of survivors of sexual abuse and rape. I have completed extensive specialist Sex Addiction training with Patrick Carnes and other pioneers in the field and have vast experience of working with Addictions in the Psychosexual field including Sex, Pornography and Love Addiction and co-dependent relationships.
