I am a qualified counsellor, psychosexual therapist, sex addiction therapist and counselling supervisor with a Certificate in Relationship Counselling, a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosexual Therapy, a Professional Certificate in Sex Addiction and a Diploma in Supervision. My psychosexual qualification is higher than that held by many sex therapists.
I have 27 year's experience working as a counsellor initially with Relate and subsequently in my private practice.
I am a Bupa network counsellor and am retained by 'Legal Reports and Services' for insurance-funded accident victim support.
I am an accredited member of the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT) and I subscribe to their professional standards. I am also an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and a member of the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity (ATSAC). I am also registered with Stop It Now (Sexual Offending).
I have a BSc and MSc in Statistics and I had a successful career first as a statistician and then in general management.
I held senior management positions in three organisations and I believe that I can understand the personal and family pressures that work can generate.
