i work with a wide variety of different issues such as: anxiety, depression, low self esteem, eating disorders, addictions, anger issues.

As a psychosexual and relationship therapist i also specialise in working with relationship and psychosexual issues with couples and individuals.

Some examples of issues that I work with are:

erectile dysfunction sex and porn addiction lack of trust loss of sexual desire
premature and delayed ejaculation marital and relationship problems sex avoidance arousal disorders
painful sex conflict resolution communication issues sexual and relationship difficulties following abuse.

Approach to Therapy & How I Work

I respect that entering into therapy is often a big decision and one which takes courage. I provide a welcoming, safe, empathetic and non-judgemental space for our work together.

My approach is integrative, which means I draw from a variety of different therapy models to find the methods of working that best suit you, your needs and goals.

Within psychosexual and relationship therapy the behavioural modalitity of therapy is adopted to a greater extent to enable changes to be made in the here and now, other modalities are applied to help us to gain an understanding of the origins of the issues.

In addition to using the usual talking therapy, which is normally where the client talks to the therapist and the therapist listens offereing insight I also use more creative tools such as working wtih dreams, guided visualisations and art work, to help us explore the issues together.
