“Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, just remember how far you have come. Remember everything you have faced, all the battles you have won, and all the fears you have overcome.”
What do you need?
Whatever you need from me – counselling, longer-term psychotherapy or psychosexual (sex) therapy – we’ll explore your difficulties together, in total confidence.
As well as listening to you without judgement, I’ll work with you to understand your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and support you in changing them if you want to. If you’re experiencing relationship or sexual difficulties, I’ll guide you in resolving these issues. There are also exercises and other resources that can help.
I’m a fully qualified, experienced counsellor and psychotherapist. I’m also a psychosexual (sex) therapist. As well as working in private practice in the Redhill / Reigate area, I work for Relate as a relationship and psychosexual therapist.
We all find life hard to cope with at times.
Whatever you’re experiencing, counselling can help you make sense of your feelings, and understand yourself and your life better. In time, you will feel more confident and in control, and find a way forward.
I will support you in working through the issues that are troubling you, for example:
- Bereavement and grief
- Decluttering / hoarding
- Emotional, physical and sexual abuse
- Low self-confidence and self-esteem
- Separation and divorce
- Stress, including school, university and work-related stress
Strong, positive relationships contribute to a long, healthy and happy life. But what if things aren’t going so well? Couple’s counselling will help you make sense of what’s going on. I’ll give you both equal time, understanding and attention, and support you through what can be a challenging and emotional process.
People come to me for help with many different relationship problems, including:
- Affairs and infidelity
- Arguments and conflict
- Betrayal or deceit
- Children / family
- Coping with a crisis
- Lost connection
- Poor communication
- Sexual concerns
I also see people struggling in other types of relationship, such as parents and adult children, and adult siblings.
Psychosexual therapy is beneficial when there’s a psychological or emotional reason rather than (or as well as) a physical or medical reason for a sexual issue.
Whether you’re single or in a relationship, monogamous or polyamorous, whatever your gender or sexual identity, psychosexual therapy can help you with most sexual issues, including:
- Erectile disorders
- Exploring BDSM and kink
- Gender dysphoria and transition
- Inability to orgasm (anorgasmia)
- Inability to have penetrative sex (vaginismus)
- Lack of desire or arousal
- Painful sex (dyspareunia)
- Rapid or delayed ejaculation
- Retarded (inhibited) ejaculation
- Sexual orientation
