About Me

I have trained as a psychosexual and relationship therapist through Relate, and with Dr Birchard in the area of compulsive and addictive sexual behaviours.

Additionally I have a qualification in assessment and treatment for people with inappropriate sexual behaviours and have been writing reports for the criminal justice system and Social Services for fifteen years.

My approach is CBT orientated (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and clients are encouraged to complete exercises at home  as a means to moving forward more swiftly.

About Me

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor who specialises in the treatment of addiction-related issues. I am accredited by FDAP (Federation of Drug & Alcohol Practitioners) and also have a graduate diploma in psychology. I am equally comfortable working with substance addictions (alcoholism and drug addiction) and process addictions (sex and love for example). I do not work with gambling addiction or eating disorders as there are better qualified therapists out there for those particular presenting issues. A good place to start is always to meet for a thorough assessment and to consider the problems together with a view to putting together a treatment plan. An assessment comes with no obligations or expectations and can shine a bright light on problem areas.

About Me

I offer therapy to individuals, couples, partners and family members affected by addictive and compulsive behaviours. I am an experienced psychotherapist and supervisor and am a sex and relationship therapist. I believe the source of most addictive and compulsive processes originate in a disconnection from self and others. Engagement in addictive and compulsive behaviours further alienate and create shame. I have particular interest and experience of working with trauma, shame reduction, and building resilience I work with those who have difficulty in establishing or maintaining relationships and with co-dependency.

About Me

I am a psychotherapist and have been working in private practice since 1997.  I was also Head of the Counselling Service at St.George’s Tooting and was also school counsellor at Kings College School, Wimbledon.  I became increasingly aware of the problem of addiction to the internet, especially to pornography. This can start early, and, though my work is not exclusively with young people, my experience with this client group has increased my understanding of addictions of various kinds among adults.  I  undertook a training in Sex and Pornography Addiction  at the Laurel Centre in London in 2018 and am a member of ATSAC.

I work with individuals and couples.  Some work is long term and some time limited.  When we meet I assess the clients’ needs and we work collaboratively from then on.  I am not the sort of therapist who sits for long stretches of time in silence, but I am a compassionate and informed listener.

About Me

I am an integrative psychotherapist, having gained an MA and an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy from Regent’s University London, I went on to study with Paula Hall at The Laurel Centre for a Diploma in Sex Addiction and Compulsivity.

I have worked for many years with individuals from the LGBTQ+ community, with GSRD (Gender, Sex and Relationship Diversity) issues which include; sex addiction and compulsive behaviours around pornography and BDSM/kink/fetish desires, as well as Chemsex and other drug related ‘out of control’ behaviours. Many aspects of these behaviours involve online, app-based and club scene related activities, as well as, issues around private chill-out events.  More information can be found on my website http://www.lgbtplus.co.uk

Chemsex is a complex issue and one that I consistently see affecting gay men within my private practice. As an integrative psychotherapist I work holistically with you, in a humanistic and relational way to connect with you, to understand what is behind these issues, as well as identifying coping strategies to help in the here and now. Methodologies include; Person Centred, CBT, Motivational Interviewing and Mindfulness.

I have also worked with male sex workers involved in escorting, online video/private subscription sites and studio pornography production, some of whom wish to leave the sex industry. Issues around self-esteem and self-worth, combined with excessive drug and alcohol use are common.

My work with SurvivorsUK involved working with men who had been sexually abused as children or raped as adults. Issues included, sex addiction and compulsivity, pornography, sexual orientation, self-harm, flashbacks and anger.

I am a registered member of UKCP and BACP.

Sessions can either be arranged in-person at my office in Belsize Park NW3 or via Zoom on a secure video link.

About Me

As my website http://www.londonsexaddictiontherapy.co.uk reflects, I’m an integrative, accredited psychosexual and relationship therapist with vast experience at working successfully with with all kinds of sexual compulsivity including issues around porn, escorts, with BDSM, fetish and illegal habits. I’m warm, down to earth, unshockable and have a lot ways to help you gain control of your triggers and work out what you want from love, sex and your life in general.

My qualifications include a PGDip in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy, an advanced diploma in couples therapy, a certificate in sex addiction and compulsivity and training in “alternative” sexualities with Pink Therapy. I’ve featured in publications including The Times, The Telegraph, The Daily Mail, The Sun and Men’s Health. I’ve also been a guest on LBC and Radio 4’s Women’s Hour.

About Me

Sex should be a natural, enjoyable part of life. But for some it becomes an addiction or compulsion. I work with people, perhaps like you, to help them return to a fulfilling sexual life.
I also work with those who feel their sexual drive may be unnatural. My office is in Canary Wharf (E14) and I see clients from all over London and surrounding counties.
CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) is the principle therapeutic approach I use but I will also introduce other counselling techniques as appropriate. The first counselling session can be daunting so I carefully tailor this meeting to ensure that clients feel as comfortable as possible. I will explain what they can expect and what will be expected of them. In this way they begin to take back control of their lives.

About Me

I offer therapy for individuals, partners affected by sex, porn addiction and sexually compulsive behaviours. I also work with partners who may be dealing with the trauma of discovery.  Partners Group work is also available through The Laurel Centre where I work as an associate.  I also have specialist training (Cofra121) and experience at working with (online) offending behaviors. I am currently working online via zoom.

I have a background working with addictions and relational therapy. I have a level 5 Diploma in Sex Addiction Counselling through the Institute for Sex Addiction Training (ISAT) and awarded by CPCAB. I have  real passion for working in this area. I have seen the devastating impact that sex and porn addiction can have on both addict and partners and also understand that reaching out for help can be a scary prospect. Often the result of a rock bottom experience. I am here to help you navigate your way through the impact,  to understand the problem and find ways to move forward.
