As a Sexual and Relationship Therapist, I am trained to work with couples, individuals or partners with sexual problems. I have completed a Diploma in Sexual Addiction to increase my specialist knowledge. I am also trained to work online as well as face-to-face and regularly use Skype and FaceTime for therapy work. I am also trained in EMDR if there is a traumatic element to your issues.
I am an experienced individual and couple counsellor. My approach is an integration of predominantly Psychodynamic and Systemic theories, I also however have training in many areas to give me as many tools as possible to help you. I offer a safe, calm and confidential environment in which we can explore your reasons for seeking therapy and navigate beginning to make positive change and reaching your goals. I am here to support you, to hear your story and use my expertise to help you find the best solution for you, as an individual or as a couple.
