I offer online relationship and sex therapy. 

About me and my therapy practice

My specialism is relationship and sex therapy for couples and individuals. Every relationship has a challenge, but if you feel that the problem has persisted for too long and caused a lot of distress for you, do contact me and we can have a conversation about the type of counselling that will suit your needs. I also work with individuals who and trying to get over break up or having difficulties in forming or ending relationships. I offer an empathetic, safe, and professional environment within which we can work together to facilitate the potential for change in the relationship and work towards sexual health, happiness and well-being.

I work with couples and individuals (heterosexual, LGBTQ+) in short and long term therapy from my private practice in Central London, Regent Street and North London, Finchley. I offer ONLINE video counselling/therapy sessions as well.

I am also trained as a clinical supervisor with The Grove Practice. Clinical supervision is offered to trainees and experienced counsellors in Relate National, NHS and private practice.

I work integratively, which means that I have training in various counselling approaches (systemic narrative, family systems, psychodynamic, object relations, attachment, CBT) and I apply my knowledge and experience to tailor a unique intervention to each client to meet their specific needs. By combining elements drawn from different schools of psychological theory and research, integrative therapy becomes a more flexible and inclusive approach to treatment than more traditional, singular forms of psychotherapy.

Practice description


Relational problems that we can work on are conflict and re-current arguments, loss of trust, affairs, dealing with the end of the relationship and adapting to change (immigration, buying property, having children). Sexual difficulties: loss of desire (low libido or sex drive), sexual pain, problems with erection/ejaculation, difficulty in reaching orgasm, dissatisfaction with sex, and the impact of pornography on sexual response in partner sex.

The first session is an assessment to establish what is the problem, how long you have experienced it, and how it impacts your emotional/physical state and your relationships. You can come on your own or with your partner.

I shall answer any questions you have about my qualifications, professional memberships or the process of therapy itself. During the initial assessment, it will be clearer what type of therapy you will require. If we decide to work together, we shall also discuss your availability, the cost of coming for counselling/therapy, the frequency of sessions, and your goals and expectations of me as a therapist.

About me and my therapy practice

My training started in 2006 with Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships and I continued my professional development with Relate Institute (MA in Relationship Therapy, PGDip in Psychosexual Therapy). I am also trained as a clinical supervisor with The Grove Practice. Clinical supervision is offered to trainees and experienced counsellors in Relate National, NHS and private practice

Practice description

What are the most common issues people bring to sex therapy? Sex has become routine and is always the same; no desire for sex with your partner (loss of desire/libido); erectile difficulties; difficulties with orgasm (anorgasmia, premature ejaculation, delayed ejaculation); painful sex; the impact of sexual abuse; questioning your sexual identity.

People gain a range of benefits from psychosexual therapy depending on their needs and the difficulties they bring. Talking about sexual problems can seem daunting, and most people feel really relieved to discuss the problems that may have been bothering them for some time and this, in itself, can have very beneficial effects on your sex life. For other people, a structured programme of help (behavioural tasks, mindfulness) can resolve their sexual problems.

What are the most common issues that people bring in relationship therapy? 

Relationship Discord and recurrent arguments; loss of trust; feeling lonely; affairs; ending a relationship; power and control in the relationship; becoming parents' feeling distant from your partner; retirement. 

Relationship therapy can help people understand why their relationship is in distress or why they feel distant from their partner. If you are not happy with a certain dynamic in your relationship, we can explore why is it there, what triggered it in your relationship, what made you vulnerable to experience this particular problem and what you and your partner both do to maintain it. Being more aware of one’s own behaviour, emotional state and thinking processes allows one to be more in control of what response one can choose in a given situation. The couples can agree on how they can recognise when the tension building up and how not to let it escalate.

My first session

The first session is an assessment that lasts 1 hour. You can attend on your own or with your partner. You can tell me about your difficulties and I shall be asking you questions about how these difficulties impact your physical/emotional state, your relationships; what was happening in your life when you noticed the problems started if you tried to do something to address the issues. After an assessment, it will be clearer what kind of therapy/counselling you need and if I can offer or if I need to give you a referral to a different specialist.

You can ask any questions about the process of counselling and my experiences and qualifications. If we decide to work together, we shall establish your availability to come for regular sessions, the frequency of sessions, cost and your preferred method of paying.

About me and my therapy practice

I offer individual and group supervision to trainees and practicing practitioners within NHS, Relate and those in private practices as relationship counsellors and sex therapists.

Practice description

I believe supervision works most creatively and productively if the therapist feels dynamic, supported and influential in shaping the work. I see my role as supervisor in helping a practitioner to identify blocks, impasse, feeling stuck within the work and reflecting on interventions, technique and ideas to move forward; identifying useful resources, reading, CPDs when appropriate; to look a self-care, best practice and issues of ethics in clinical context.

Models of supervision vary, but essentially the ‘7 Eyed Model’ can create a good broad spectrum from which to work.

I offer face-to- face supervision, phone or Zoom.

Please do contact me to discuss supervision further.

My first session

Prior to our first session we shall a telephone conversation (free of charge) to discuss our contract, what type of supervision you had before and what kind of supervisor you are looking for.

You can ask any questions about how I work and my experiences and qualifications. If we decide to work together, we shall establish your availability to come for supervision, locations (Regent Street, Finchley Central or Zoom), cost and your preferred method of paying.
