Research Interests

Previous research:

Psychosexual research. Female genitalia and the sexual response.

Ongoing research:

Further psychosexual research into relationships and sexuality.

I aim to provide a safe, secure and supportive environment in group or individual therapy, where you feel able to explore any of the concerns or difficulties that have been holding you back from leading a full life. Through a process of exploring your experiences, your emotional world or your relationships, you will be supported towards accessing new insights which will allow you to move forward towards a more healthy and fulfilling sense of self and well being.
