What could you do, to nurture your inner child today?

NB My Practice is currently full and I will be unable to accept new clients at this moment.  As I don’t operate a waiting list, please check back circa beginning of October. 

I am an experienced Psychosexual Therapist and Relationship Therapist, with a Diploma in Relationship Counselling (DiRC) & a Diploma in Sex & Relationship Therapy (DipSRT), gained from Relationships Scotland, Edinburgh. As such, I am qualified to see couples or Individuals who are experiencing difficulties in their relationships or would like to explore, change and/or enhance their current situation or who feel their relationships have reached crisis point.

My Sex Therapy practice can help with sexual dysfunction, such as (but not limited to): erectile dysfunction; delayed ejaculation; lack of intimacy; painful sex; vulval pain; vaginismus; porn use that impacts you and/or your relationship negatively.

As an Integrative Therapist, I have an avid interest in trauma and I use various tools from my therapeutic toolbox, to help meet your current needs and to try to find the cause and not just treat the symptoms of your discontent or distress. I am just about to embark on my third and final year as a student of a Somatic Experiencing®, a gentle and embodied practice that allows us to integrate past unresolved stress or trauma, so we are able to live a more fulfilled life, moving from fixity to flow.
(see for more info.)

Key themes I see in practice include subjects such as: anxiety; affairs; depression; family issues; feeling overwhelmed; financial worries; lack of connection; lack of intimacy; life changes and loss (such as bereavement – including pets, illness, menopause, redundancy); low self-esteem; porn addiction; sex addiction; stress; trauma.

I believe the best therapy happens when the relationship between Client and Therapist clicks and when the Client comes with an open mind and the willingness to discover. I firmly believe my Clients already have the answers they seek resolution to – they just need to space and the right environment, in which to hear or see or feel these answers.

I am currently practicing online and via telephone and my consultations are 50 minutes long and cost £55. Often weekly sessions work well, but this arrangement can be more flexible if this does not suit your situation. And, you may only want to come for one session. I currently use the Zoom platform for online sessions and have successfully completed an 80+ hours Certificate in Online and Telephone Counselling from the Counselling Tutor.

I am a member of the following professional bodies: COSCA; BACP and COSRT and as such, I model my Practice on their ethical guidelines.

*I do not see children or adolescents nor clients who are actively misusing alcohol or drugs at the time of our scheduled appointments*

If you have a complaint about my service which you believe breaches COSCA’s code of ethics, I would be happy to discuss with you in the first instance or you can contact the organisation directly at
