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.
