About me

I am a professionally trained sex and relationship therapist. I am a supervisor and willing to work with difficult ethical dilemmas within marginalised communities. My background involves teaching, sexual and reproductive health (GUM & HIV) and working with communities such as LGBTQI, sex workers and immigrants with identity, belonging and other issues. I have worked at various private and NHS settings.

I am trained in humanistic integrative counselling, which means I work with a combination of several humanistic models and theory. My special interest is in Diversity - cross cultural and transgender relationships and sexual health matters such as Erectile/Ejaculatory Dysfunctions, Vaginismus (painful intercourse for women), loss of desire, sexuality/gender and other sexual health related matters. I worked within the sexual and reproductive health for 18 years and understand clinical aspects of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. I am pro choice.

I am a BACP and COSRT accredited and UKCP registered therapist. I provide supervision and have extensive NHS management experience including coaching and mentoring of NHS managers. I am aware of gender and sexuality issues within workplace and have worked with organisations to mediate a professional working relationship between staff.

I work from Fulham in London.
