About me and my therapy practice
With over 20 years specific experience in the field of sexual health, I am a Psychosexual Therapist working in private practice in Worcestershire. I work with sexual dysfunctions such as loss of desire, painful sex, vaginismus, erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation. I also work with sexual addictions and compulsive sexual behaviours, in this regard I most commonly see people with pornography addiction. I have worked in an NHS sexual health clinic, within Relate- a national counselling service, for a local NHS trust in their sexual health counselling service and now solely in private practice. I trained in EMDR Therapy at Worcester University in 2015/16 as part of an MSc in EMDR Therapy that I completed in 2018. I am an EMDR Europe Accredited Practitioner. Whilst EMDR is recommended as a first line treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) by the World Health Organisation, its successful application to other presentations has been proven effective in many studies. I am specifically interested in the use of EMDR Therapy in treating sexual presentations. Anxiety related sexual issues and difficult past sexual experiences can be treated most effectively utilising this approach. This enables clients to make deep and lasting changes to their problematic behaviours and move forward positively with improved resilience. It also makes the work I do so satisfying being able to help people on such a fundamental level.
