I am now only available online via Zoom

Fees & Charges

I am currently only working online via Zoom video and fees are between £85- £120 for a daytime appointment.

I charge £85 per sixty minutes for online Clinical Supervision/Practice Consultation.
I ask for payment to be made in advance of the session.

I am willing if it’s clinically appropriate, to see you on a flexible basis (fortnightly, monthly etc) and this can spread your therapy cost out. It may mean progress is a bit slower or you do more work between sessions yourself.

I also carry one low-cost online place (usually £60 per session). These are reserved for trans and gender diverse clients who are often poorly served and research shows have greater challenges to their mental health l


Online/Internet Counselling, Skype Video Counselling.

About me


UPDATE January 2022:  My Practice is currently full and I am unable to take on any new therapy ongoing clients. I sometimes have ad hoc space for consultations & supervision.


I began my career as a volunteer working with the Samaritans, working with them for the first decade of my career - mostly doing outreach support at music festivals around the UK, alongside two years of work on their helplines.  I also trained as a Residential Social Worker and worked with emotionally damaged adolescents before heading off to university to train as a Community and Youth Worker, specialising as a youth counsellor.  On graduating from that course, I started a training practicum as a University Counsellor under the supervision of Michael Jacobs and later with Moira Walker.  I also volunteered as a counsellor and assessor at Leicester Counselling Centre and was supervised for many years by the late Dr Bernard Ratigan. I also began my training in Person-Centred Counselling and Psychotherapy with Dave Mearns, Brian Thorne and Elke Lambers (1985-1988).


In 1987 I made a career change from University Counselling to work in HIV Education and prevention spearheading up a broad programme of activities for Mersey Regional Health Authority.  I went to New York and San Francisco to learn from and be trained as a 'buddy' and came back to the UK and trained the first HIV Buddies for Merseyside and Manchester, I also pioneered training for deaf people working as buddies and support workers with people with HIV/AIDS and ran a range of innovative training workshops around sexual health, gay men and sexuality.


In 1989 I moved to Nottingham University to take up a post as a University Counsellor and in 1995 I moved to Nottingham Trent University as a Senior Lecturer in Counselling and Psychotherapy - training counsellors and psychotherapists on their programme. My first book Pink Therapy (co-edited with Charles Neal, McGraw Hill) was published in 1996 and later that year I had a second book (The Sexual Politics of Disability: Untold Desires) published co-authored with Tom Shakespeare and Kath Gillespie-Sells.  


In 1997, I I left Nottingham to go to Australasia to where I finished co-editing the second two volumes of Pink Therapy textbooks and delivered some training and consultancy around sexuality and disability issues in Sydney, Melbourne and across New Zealand.


In 1999 I returned to the UK and set up Pink Therapy (this organisation) where we have continued to pioneer training for therapists in working with people with diverse genders, sexualities, relationships and lifestyles.

Sexual & Gender Identity:

Experience and approach

Specific experience and training:

I have been working with gender and sexual diversity clients for almost 40 years, most of that time in private practice, although I have also worked in Primary Care and had a decade working with students and staff at two Universities.  I am BDSM/Kink Knowledgeable and Sex Worker friendly.  I am also familiar working with a wide range of relationship models.

I've co-edited (with Charles Neal) three volumes of Pink Therapy textbooks, written many other articles, chapters etc. Click here for a recent article in Out in the City - a monthly gay magazine

I have developed and run various courses on gender and sexual diversity and therapy in the UK and abroad. I am regularly invited to speak about this subject at major conferences for Royal College of Psychiatrists, BACP, UKCP, Relate, BASRT (now COSRT), Royal Society of Medicine  and the British Psychological Society.  I have also programmed conference input for British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and UK Council for Psychotherapy.


I have attended over a 200 workshops and seminars on gender sexual minority therapy,  well as acting as Programme Director for seven international conferences on gender and sexual diversity therapy which Pink Therapy has run.  I am also course leader for our Post Graduate Diploma and our Foundation Certificate  in Gender, Sexuality and Relationship Diversity Therapy, a course which trains therapists across the world.  


I worked sessionally at PACE as an Initial Consultation Counsellor (for over two years, and ran a supervision group for 18 months). I served on the Editorial Board for the Journal of Gay and Lesbian Psychotherapy for several years and am currently on the Editorial Board for Psychology and Sexuality (Taylor & Francis).


I am experienced in working with young people (aged 16+); as well as adults in a variety of relationships styles, including various forms of consensual non-monogamy. 


Therapies Practiced:
Counselling, Life coaching , Psychosexual therapy, Psychotherapy, Supervision/Consultation.
Specialisms and interests:

Relationship therapy; sex therapy and psychosexual difficulties; 'sexual addiction' happy to work with people who feel out of control in their sexual behaviour, HIV/AIDS; anxiety, bereavement and loss, depression; disability sexuality; identity confusion and change; coming out; self-esteem and shame, trauma and post traumatic stress.

Male survivors of sexual abuse and sexual trauma (rape, assault etc)   

I am also trained in and able to offer a 'Fast Trauma and Phobia Cure' as well as Thought Field Therapy (TFT Dx & VT) - Callahan Techniques, which is an energy psychology and sometimes known as 'the tapping cure.'  Which is very good for resolving trauma and acute anxiety.


Gender issues, including gender diverse & non binary people and those people who maybe diagnosed with 'Gender Dysphoria' and 'Gender Incongruence') or people who are confused or unhappy with their gender. I enjoy working with a broad spectrum of Transgender, Non Binary & Intersex people on a whole range of life issues whether they're directly connected to their gender or not.



I am experienced at working with people who have run into problems with chemsex and who are wanting to make changes to either stop or reduce the amount of chemsex they're having.  You decide the goals here, I work with you, to achieve your goals.


If you're having difficulties with Tina, GBL, Meph and feeling you life has started to revolve around Chemsex most weekends and you want to feel more in control of how you manage your use of sex and drugs, then I might be a good therapist to discuss things with.  I take a non-judgmental approach to chems and as a sex therapist I have experience at working with people who have had concerns with their sexual performance and social anxiety - two features which seem to co-occur for many gay/bi men who run into problems.   


I will work with you to put you back in control of your life and your relationship to Chems and to the sex and relationships you're having.

Conversion Therapy Survivors (attempts to change sexual orientation or gender expression)

I am particularly interested in working with people who have been involved in conversion/reparative 'therapy' (Ex-Gay movement). I was interviewed by Channel 4 News challenging Joseph Nicolosi who was the CEO of NARTH.  I am one of the co-authors and signatories to the Memorandum of Understanding on Conversion Therapy signed by all the major psy/therapy organisations at the Department of Health in October 2017.  I've also consulted to the Council of Europe on this issue.


BDSM/Kink and Fetish
I am a 'Kink Knowledgeable' therapist and happy to work with clients who either live a BDsM lifestyle or engage in SM, BDSM/Kink practices of all sexualities and gender identities. If you're in a BDSM relationship and wish to explore the dynamics or any difficulties I'm happy to help you unpick things: Master/slave, Daddy/son, Handler/pup, Dom(me)/sub.  If you're kink-curious and uncertain about what you can expect and why you're drawn to it, then this could be a good conversation to have with me. Communication, self-awareness and safety are all important things to address if you're entering the Kink world.    I am listed on the Kink Aware Professional's Directory and for the past six years have been facilitating a consultation and discussion group for Kink Knowledgeable therapists.


Consultation to other therapists
I offer consultation and supervision of Gender, Sexuality and Relationship Diversity Therapy. I have a strong interest in ethical issues. One-off consultations welcome. I offer mentoring to therapists wishing to improve their knowledge and skills with gender, sexuality and relationship diversity clients. We can work over Zoom, Skype or other video platforms.

Theoretical approach:
Integrative, Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, Relational.
Ethical Framework:
