About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced International Couple & Individual Psychosexual Therapist (PG Dip) (Tavistock trained), MBACP ( Accred) & COSRT registered, with a BSc (Hons) in Psychology.

I have a wide range of clinical experience from both the public and private sectors with a background of over 14 years in the field of personal development and 8 years in applied Psychology. I work across a range of private and public sector (NHS).​ ​My work is informed by Existentialist and Humanistic theory and Principles, Zen Therapy, Focusing, Body Psychotherapy, Psychosexual Couple Therapy and Psycho-Physiology of trauma.

​My clients are from all over the world with varied multi-cultural backgrounds, of all ages, often expats, (which comes with a very specific set of challenges in itself.​

I am truly grateful for the fact I do what I love. The Psychosexual lens is raw, powerful, unique. It is a most powerful tool to work with, and no stone is left unturned. We look at every single dimension of your life; the biology, psychology, spirituality, and physiology as well as one's present, past and past ancestry.

The clinic covers issues with individuals, couples & polyconfiguration relationship issues, sexual communication, sexuality, intimacy, menopause, sex and aging, exploration of alternatives to conventional intercourse;

issues with porn, body image, loss of desire, dealing with difference in libido in the couple, difficulty with orgasm, involuntary ejaculation, vaginismus, erectile issue, fear of sex or sex avoidance & phobias;

sexual orientation, gender identity struggles/coming out, and exploration of alternative sexuality and relationships (Open relationships- Polyamory- Kink- Fetishes).

​Some couples also work with me to learn how to separate with integrity, authenticity, autonomy and respect. 

Practice description

​I love that I can help people get unstuck. I love I can help demystify and normalise what sexual intimacy truly can be.... a far cry from what media tells us perhaps. I love that I can help women learn how to feel pleasure and work towards having an orgasm, no matter their age. I love to be able to help couples finding a new space within themselves they didn’t know was there before and experience each other’s bodies in a different way. I feel privileged to be of service to those who need to learn again how to construct a safe space within themselves in order to be able to feel pleasure again.

​As part of my Psychosexual work, I am interested how cultivating a quality of presence and acceptance of all our emotions and feelings affects the quality of our lives. How to sense, become aware of, label, live and dispel our emotions and feelings healthily.

​I also hold the deep belief that body and mind can be integrated for both component are part of a whole. Diligently, in the background of our mind, our body creates a repository of knowledge about the experiences we live, even that for which there is no words sometimes. This dimension is integral part of my clinical work.​

On a final note, I believe finding your therapist is like finding “that” pair of shoes - it needs to “fit”. The relationship you have together is pretty unique. Together we delves in the most hidden parts of you Self. So, it is primordial for you to feel safe and connected with your therapist . TRUST YOURSELF, you will know when you find the right one for you. Do not feel discouraged or put off if I am not for you.
