About me and my therapy practice

Don’t you think it’s about time sex, pleasure and relationships, being a taboo subject, became a thing of the past?

Well, I do.

Sex and pleasure is not a shameful act.

In fact it’s part of being human, but it can be shameful to talk about…

… then it doesn’t get talked about which can lead to unfulfilling relationships and unsatisfying sex.

What if you could talk to someone who was not going to judge you?

Instead, hold you, in all your shame and discomfort, as we look at some of the conditions and beliefs adopted from culture and society to give you space to transform into a new version of yourself where you can feel liberated and fulfilled… living your fullest and truest raw and authentic self… 

Practice description

For the last two years, I delved deep and began working with sexuality and relationships. 

I have worked at various sexuality based festivals, retreats and workshops, worldwide, in different capacities from helping with the set up and take down of the festival, the organisational and administrative side, to being a facilitators’ assistant, to holding emotional support spaces, and taking the lead on workshops.

I’ve had experience of working with people who have experienced sexual trauma, non-abusing parents of sexually abused children, addiction/dependency and anxiety.

Qualifications include:

BA (Hons) in Counselling

Motivational Enhancement Therapy for addiction

PGCE in Training and Education

Various trainings on sex, sexuality and relationships.

For three years, I worked as a tutor, teaching a range of counselling courses and qualifications levels 2-5. This included core qualifications and individual modules including Personal Development, 

I have overseen and taken the lead on internal marking and assessing.
