Professional Experience
  • Sexual Health South West London (SHSWL), Clapham Junction (NHS) and, before that, at SHSWL Balham (NHS) as a Psychosexual Therapist. I worked with individuals and couples dealing with a wide variety of sexual dysfunction including low sexual desire, vaginismus/dyspareunia, sex addiction, erectile dysfunction and anorgasmia.
  • Courtyard Clinic at St George's Hospital, Tooting (NHS) as a Psychosexual Therapist . I had particular experience working with women who experienced pain and discomfort during sex (vaginismus/dyspareunia), men who had erectile and ejaculatory difficulties, and with loss of orgasmic/arousal difficulties and low libido.
  • Ealing Abbey Counselling Service, London as a Psychosexual and Relationship Therapist working with couples with relationship and sexual difficulties
  • Open Door Services, Feltham as a counsellor and psychotherapist working with relationship issues including suicide, anxiety and bereavement
  • Cobham, Surrey where I currently see individuals and couples in private practice for a wide range of issues. I have particular experience in working with sexual and relationship difficulties.

    Personal Approach
    I work within an integrated framework that draws on a range of counselling theories, approaches and techniques: Psychodynamic Therapy, Existential Psychotherapy, Gestalt Therapy and Imago Therapy. I consider my way of working with people (individually, in couples, sex therapy) as providing an individual approach that is personalised around you and your needs and issues. I work with adults of all ages providing long and short term counselling and psychotherapy.
