I have been a therapist specialising in sexual and relationship work since 1976, and have experience of a wide range of people and problems. My professional career started in nursing at Guy's Hospital. I then worked as a Family Planning Nurse, where my interest in sexuality and sexual problems developed. I decided to train as a sexual and relationship therapist. Starting in 1981, I have taught others to become therapists, and have supervised many students, beginning therapists, and experienced colleagues.
Coming from a background in nursing gave me a special understanding of the medical/physical aspects of sexual problems and their management, and an interest in physical methods as well as the psychological/emotional side of things.
I trained in Family Therapy to give me a wider range of ideas for helping couples to get over problems together. It has also given me an appreciation of family matters and how much they affect sex and relationships. This has been deepened by later training in working with family constellations, and encounter centred therapy. I have also received special training in working with trauma and in online work, so can offer a range of different ideas and approaches to therapy, finding the method that works best for any person or couple. If I think I can't help. I will do my best to refer on to somebody who can.
