About me and my therapy practice

I have 20 years experience treating straight and gay couples and individuals with a wide range of problems. I did a specialised training in 2009 (after a first Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy in 2006), that focused on psychosexual and relationship problems in couples and individuals. 

These days many more people want to address in a safe, non judgemental environment the difficulties they are having with their sex and relationship lives. That's not to say this is the only focus of any counselling or psychotherapy; clients want to talk about everything that pertains to their thoughts and feelings and general mental health especially anxieties and depressive thoughts and feelings.  

I'm a great advocate of the likes of Esther Perel and others who write about the challenges of monogamy in a world of so many choices, the impact of pornography, how to maintain the passion, intimacy and good communication in relationships of all configurations. Latterly I've become more of a sex and relationship coach, especially for men who find themselves, often with low confidence, erectile problems and porn use, repeating unhelpful cycles in their dating game and losing their masculine energy in their marriages, long term relationships and sex lives causing them huge stress and anxiety. 

As psychosexual work is psychological, these men, and women, shift miraculously from feeling disempowered to getting what they need sexually and relationally, their personal potency returning and transforming them in many aspects of their lives including work, in their families and in their romantic relationships.

There are multiple aspects to counselling, psychotherapy and psychosexual and relationship therapy; families, births, deaths, bereavements, abuse, trauma, personality disorders, sexually compulsive behaviours, addictions, work, illness, money, stress, low motivation, ADHD and neuro-divergency, cultural differences, religion and faith differences, war, immigration, sexuality
