I provide psychosexual therapy to clients from diverse educational and vocational backgrounds with psychosexual issues. I use an integrative approach, offering non-judgemental therapy to couples and individuals of any age, gender or sexual orientation. This includes various approaches including education and normalisation.

Common sexual problems which can be treated effectively with psychosexual therapy include: dyspareunia, vaginismus, anorgasmia, erectile dysfunction, rapid ejaculation, delayed ejaculation. I also work with sex addiction and I offer support for partners or family members affected by addictions. Other issues include difficulties associated with age, illness, gender identity, disability, menopause, lack of desire, use of pornography and past sexual abuse.

As a specialist in relationship therapy, I provide therapeutic support to heterosexual and same sex couples and individuals with relationship and psychological issues. Treatment involves, use of various communication tools, education and normalisation.

I currently work for the NHS in various clinics around Lancashire and St. Mary’s Hospital, Manchester, where I have gained an extensive amount of experience in all areas of psychosexual therapy.

I also gained experience in workplace issues, having worked alongside Human Resources, in a large media organisation for over 18 years.

Please feel free to contact me where we can discuss, in complete confidentiality, the possibility of working together.
