A Healthy Approach to Sex and Sexuality
Since 2006, I have been able to help many people suffering from the impact of sex, pornography and internet based compulsive behaviour. It's a complex issue, with many possible causes. By maintaining an open mind, I avoid a one size fits all diagnosis and can help you think about its function in your life. I promote sexual health, and do not approach the behaviour as an addiction in the same way that many therapists do.

The good news is that Counselling and Psychotherapy can help you to achieve greater control of your life. By listening carefully to your thoughts and feelings, I can help facilitate a period of acceptance and change.

Safe and Ethical
Out of control sexual behaviour, is a sexual problem in which an individuals consensual sexual urges and behaviours feel out of control.
I work in a safe and ethical way, with a compassionate supportive approach. My treatment is without judgement and I am free from the belief that sexual compulsion is a choice in the normal meaning of the word. I believe it is a response to emotional issues or other external factors.
Empathy and Insight
I am emphatic that improvements in psychological well being, will lead to changes in how you relate to yourself and slow down the urge to act compulsively . I see out of control sexual behaviour as a symptom of suppressed past emotional trauma, and unresolved difficulty.
I offer insight and empathy that gets to the core of the problem. It goes without saying that confidentiality is a priority.
I previously worked in the NHS for many years, and have also worked in counselling agencies specialising in the treatment of addictions, and the support of victims of sexual abuse.
