Furthermore, I have completed CPDs in the treatment of family members of addicts at the Centre of Addiction Treatment Studies (CATS/Bath University) and training in sex addiction.

I offer therapy to individuals and couples where there are issues connected with sex and love addiction and compulsivity. I also work with the partners of addicted individuals. I am an experienced couples counsellor and psycho-sexual therapist and have worked for Relate for 18 years and also for over 12 years in private practice. I trained in sex addiction with Thaddeus Birchard successfully completing my ATSAC Accreditation Certificate in 2014.
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.
I am a Sexual and Relationship Therapist. I specialise in working with issues around sexual desire, compulsive sexual and/or relationship behaviours (e.g. porn, sex, fantasy, romance, and love addiction), specific sexual practices and sexual function. I bring to my practice a background in behavioural neuroscience, and sexuality education. I am dedicated to helping you explore what is okay for you and develop your version of a happy, healthy sense of satisfying relationships and sexual experience. I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) who has trained in providing therapy for sex addiction, psychosexual issues, and sexual offending. I am a General Member of the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT) who abides by the COSRT code of ethics and practice.
I work with individuals who are experiencing substance and behavioural addictions, including sexual addiction and compulsive behaviour. I use cognitive, behavioural, solution focussed and motivational interviewing approaches to help clients work out what is going on, what they would like to be different and the best ways to achieve and sustain this.
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.
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.
I am a NHS Senior Therapist and Clinical Supervisor and can support you if you are looking for help with compulsive and addictive sexual behaviour including porn addiction. I offer therapy to both individuals and couples and also family members and partners who’s lives have been turned upside down.
I have a particular interest and experience of working with sexual trauma and understand how the origins of addiction can often be attributed to early traumatic life events.
I have an ISAT Diploma in Sex Addiction and am a registered therapist with (StopSO) the Specialist Treatment Organisation for the Prevention of Sexual Offending. I am an accredited member of the (BACP) British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and practice in accordance with their ethical framework and a qualified member of (ATSAC), the Association of Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity.
I am a therapist.
I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist and work with people who are looking for help with compulsive sexual behaviour. I work in Central London (Oxford Circus) as well as Brixton.
My approach in working with individuals and couples is eclectic, and includes Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing. This helps provide the necessary structure when working with compulsive sexual behaviour whilst accommodating the individual needs of those I work with.
I offer a free introductory session to help clients understand more about what counselling can offer them and how it works, as well as to better understand what clients are looking for.
I work with people with sex & love addiction, co-dependency, sexual anorexia and the partners of sex addicts.
Additional Information: I am a supervisor to therapists working with sex-addicted clients and I supervise group leaders of sexual recovery therapy groups.
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.
