About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified psychosexual and relationship therapist with experience practicing with individual and couples at the NHS sexual clinic at Croydon University Hospital. Referrals included vaginismus, low desire, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, relationship and intimacy difficulties, painful intercourse, anxiety in response to sexual stimuli, low desire, sexual identity, confidence crisis, erectile dysfunction, inability to reach orgasm, premature ejaculation, dyspareunia and other sexual and relational issues.

I have an initial qualification (MA in Art Therapy) and I have been practicing in this capacity for over ten years with young people and adults. 

My theoretical approach is Integrative with psychodynamic principles and understanding. During the therapeutic process we will explore your needs together. I will give you relevant sexual information, activity assignments, and explore your beliefs, assumptions and early influences. Every therapeutic journey is unique and I will support you through your self-exploration process of your sexuality and intimacy, individually and/or in couple. Although I do not make promises, I do trust the therapeutic relationship and the potency that emerges from each therapy journey in developing unique creative expressions that will support you in your decisions to move forward and reach your goals.

Practice description

Sessions are private and confidential, a safe and nonjudgmental space, currently using the Zoom platform. Individuals and couples are welcome, heterosexual and same sex relationships. Please feel free to contact me if you would like an initial consultation (fee £40 for 40min) or would like further information about my therapeutic approach before deciding to start therapy.

My first session

I offer an initial 40 minute consultation using the Zoom video platform to explore your reasons for therapy and give you all the information that you need.  If you would like to move forward with your therapy sessions I will then email you a contract and an intake form to be emailed back prior to starting your first therapy session with Zoom. I will email you a Zoom link about 5-10 minutes prior to he start of each session.

During the consultation we will explore your goals, a fortnightly schedule for your sessions, same day and time at your convenience. We will focus on history taking (sexual, parental relating model). The first session will vary depending on each client's presentation, reasons for starting therapy. 

Please feel free to email me at any point if you have any questions.
