Clients often tell me they want a therapist who will both listen and have something to say. I believe that a good connection and two-way communication must be established in order for therapy to be successful. My therapeutic approach is all about helping you to do the work you need to do to overcome the obstacles that hinder you on your path.
I am a psychosexual and relationship therapist working mainly with men (and some couples) around topics including relationships, sex, and problematic sexual behaviours which may include compulsive sexual behaviour (so called sex or porn addiction). I offer an empathic and non-shaming environment to explore issues, such as betrayals, mismatched desire or enhancing sexual intimacy. I can help to find ways to listen, share and restore connection.
I specialise in helping clients with problems, including disappointing erections (so-called erectile dysfunction), low desire, ejaculating sooner than you want, delayed or absent ejaculation (anorgasmia).
My approach offers a respectful and sex positive environment to explore challenging issues and I work at your pace rather than my own. I use a variety of approaches, depending on what works best with different clients.
I know that living out of alignment with your values can be difficult and painful. I provide a safe and non-judgmental space to explore what is true for you.
I am Polyamory and Kink competent (and also friendly, of course). I know this is something clients might be curious about and want to explore. Whilst this may be part of a client's life, it is often not the main reason they come to therapy, and sometimes it is.
I help men find their voice: what do I want, am I able to let my partner know and how do I deal with my partner’s reactions? I know that men are not always as open or transparent as they would like to be in relationship. As men, we learn to be defensive when challenged, whilst this strategy may work in some situations, within intimate relationship it rarely ends well.
I am a fully qualified sex and relationship therapist and have been awarded the Diploma in Clinical Sexology (psychosexual therapy) and the Diploma in Compulsive Sexual Behaviour, both from the Contemporary Institute of Clinical Sexology.
These Diploma courses are accredited by the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT), which means they meets the stringent requirements of the UK’s accrediting body for sexual and relationship therapists.
I am a registered member of the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists and also the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
