I am a registered COSRT Psychosexual and Relationship Therapist (PRT) and a Loss & Bereavement Counsellor.
My journey of being a therapist started when I was trying to understand my own identity and sense of self. I think we are too quick to define ourselves by the norms created around us. I encourage my clients to define their own normal.
I became a therapist as I like to help people learn and develop better ways to handle issues that are standing in the way of achieving their full potential. I learn a lot from my clients and really value the therapeutic relationship. My clients say I am easy to talk to, easy to be open with and non-judgemental.
I provide a warm, friendly, confidential space, where you can feel safe, challenged and have the autonomy to explore whatever is on your mind. The outcome of therapy I most value is seeing my clients personal growth; it is a wonderful thing to watch. I feel that the process of therapy is a rewarding experience.
Get in touch today to see what I can do for you.
INTEGRATIVE HUMANISTIC APPROACH...
...using Existential, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis and Person-Centred techniques.
The aim of humanistic therapy is to help you develop a stronger, healthier sense of self. I care about the present moment and want you to achieve your highest potential. I specialise in Psychosexual and Relationship therapy, and also have experience in Loss and Bereavement.
PSYCHOSEXUAL & RELATIONSHIP ISSUES:
A lot of people find it difficult to talk about sex and their body, fantasies and desires. Psychosexual therapy addresses sexual dysfunction and/or emotional blocks within a relationship. I can provide an outlet for you to talk about your issues in a trusted supportive space. Whatever problems you are having individually or in your relationship, I can help ease the issue by working with you to address the problem. I work with individuals and couples of all sexual orientations, gender identities and sexualities. I have experience with:
Common sexual problems:
Sexual health issues
Sexual arousal, desire & intimacy
Sexual orientation issues & LGBTQI
Sexual anxiety, phobias or aversions
BDSM, Kink & Fetishes
Cross-cultural & Religious issues
Trust issues & Infidelity
Specific sexual dysfunctions in Males:
Erectile Dysfunction (inability to obtain or maintain an erection)
Rapid ejaculation (fast orgasm upon penile stimulation)
Retrograde ejaculation (semen ejaculation into urinary bladder)
Delayed ejaculation (difficulty achieving orgasm)

Vulvodynia (chronic vulva pain syndrome)
Vestibulodynia (localised vulva vestibule pain - burning or cutting)
Anorgasmia (persistent inability to achieve orgasm despite responding to sexual stimulation) or Orgasmic problems
LOSS & BEREAVEMENT
Most people will experience loss at some point in their lives. Grief is a reaction to any form of loss. Coping with the loss of a loved one shouldn't be something done alone. I can help you understand the bereavement process and find better ways of coping with your grief. I have experience with:
Sleep problems such as insomnia
Relationships which are suffering
Symptoms of depression or anxiety
Loss of appetite
