I am a highly experienced sex and relationship therapist, qualified in sexual addiction therapy. With over 15 years of psychotherapeutic experience, with a background in charitable and NHS sexual health services, delivering a variety of services within these sectors. I provide a unique, confidential and safe counselling and psychotherapy practice. My sexual health expertise provides relief of sexual dysfunctions and out of control sexual behaviours, ultimately allowing you the sexual satisfaction you desire. I provide a fresh approach to counselling, psychotherapy and the management of sexual difficulties.
Since the onset of COVID – 19, I have been providing online therapy, using a secure and encrypted network, which has been clinically audited. There is research to suggest that online therapy can be just as effective as face to face therapy. However, I recognise this may not be suitable for all and there are some cases where online therapy is unsuitable, when this is the case I will endeavour to signpost you to appropriate services.
Counselling and Psychotherapy
Life can throw so many obstacles, from major incidents to repetitive small ones, it can all eventually take its toll. Counselling and Psychotherapy is by no means a magic pill, but we know that talking about our difficulties with a trained therapist can begin to relieve you of some of the symptoms life events can leave.
“I aim to support you in becoming unapologetically you!”.
Sex and Relationship Therapy
It may not always be easy to explain what the problem is regarding your sexual health and wellbeing, however, from sex therapy you can expect some of the following improvements in:
In sex and relationship therapy I will support you in making the changes that you desire, essentially you master your body.
Compulsive Sexual Behaviours
Whether you have sexual dysfunction, limited sexual information or an “addiction”, I recognise that shame can also hinder people from reaching out for support. It’s important to know that every behaviour or habit has a function, most commonly, some behaviours are soothing. Despite, the soothing nature of sex addiction, it can often present unwanted behaviour, causing conflict with self and others, in turn harming general health and wellbeing. Talking with a trained therapist can support you in taking the steps you need to create change.
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing)
As a qualified EMDR therapist, I can provide this comprehensive psychotherapy that helps you process and recover from past experiences affecting your mental health and well-being.
Psychological First Aid
I offer brief local-based (West Midlands) psychological first aid for those experiencing crisis, predominantly to key-workers. If you feel that counselling is not for you, but need to talk about recent events, get in touch. If you are having suicidal thoughts, please contact your GP and call the Samaritans.
Clinical Supervision As a COSRT registered supervisor, I provide clinical supervision for trainees and qualified therapists.
Unfortunately, I am unable to provide this service to individuals who have severe mental health issues, currently in severe crisis and receiving treatment for this, or individuals who are currently receiving counselling or psychotherapy for presenting or related issues.
