I am an experienced psychotherapist, accredited with COSRT, BABCP and EMDR UK and Ireland and I am trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches. I have completed a BSc in reproductive and sexual health, a postgraduate diploma in psychosexual therapy, a Relate certificate in relationship therapy, a postgraduate diploma in cognitive behavioural therapy and EMDR Europe Accredited training in eye movement desensitization and reprocessing. I also worked for Relate as a psychosexual and relationship therapist for a number of years.
I have completed an MSc in psychological trauma. I have a special interest in working with trauma and my training as a CBT therapist and EMDR therapist enables me to provide evidence based, recommended treatments for PTSD. I have also completed additional training in compassion focused therapy with the Compassionate Mind Foundation and working with sexually addictive and compulsive behaviours with The Laurel Centre.
I’m currently employed part time as a psychosexual therapist for the NHS, offering treatments for couples and individuals with sexual difficulties. My private practice offers psychosexual and relationship therapy, CBT and EMDR. I also offer treatment for sexually compulsive and addictive behaviours and am able to draw on all my therapeutic approaches to work individually with clients who are addicts, their partners, or the addict and partner as a couple to address the impact of the behaviour.
I have a clinic in Chester where I see clients face to face, I also offer online therapy via Zoom.
