Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I am a fully qualified Psychotherapist and hold the ATSAC professional Certificate for Treating Sexual Addiction.
I work with individuals who are struggling with compulsive sexual behaviours including paraphilic urges. These can range from, viewing online Pornography, having multiple sexual encounters or sexual urges towards children.
I also work with the partners of addicted individuals suffering from these behaviours. I have vast clinical experience of working with men who have committed sexual offenses or struggling with unwanted intrusive sexual thoughts towards woman and children.
Entering therapy, especially when talking about such a private and sensitive topic can be very daunting. With this in mind it is always my intention to help you feel safe and at ease and to not feel judged. I work in a warm and empathic way allowing you to explore your thoughts and feelings no matter how dark they may be.
I am a registered member of the following associations:
- The British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
- The Association for the Treatment for the Treatment of Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity (ATSAC)
- The College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT)
I am also a Trustee for the Specialist Treatment Organisation for Perpetrators and Survivors of Sexual Offending (STOPSO)
Please feel free to contact me to arrange a free 15-minute consultation. From then on the first initial session will last for one hour and all further sessions last fifty minutes. Each session will be £100.00. If after your initial session you decide that you would like to book a block of sessions, I do offer block bookings of 6 sessions or more at a discounted rate.
I am also a qualified Supervisor for Counsellors and Psychotherapists who work within this area of expertise, and I currently have availability for Supervisees.
I am fully insured, and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) abide by their ethical framework.
I offer fee to face therapy in Stratford-Upon-Avon or Nationally via Zoom.
