ABOUT

 

I trained as a therapist following many years running my own businesses. I realised that what I really valued above all else was seeing people realise their potential, achieving the most out of themselves and their relationships.

I have a particular interest in the dynamics of couple relationships, and aiding couples to improve them. In addition, I am passionate about helping people to achieve the happy, healthy sex lives they would like.

I am extremely passionate about my work and enjoy advancing my knowledge in my chosen field by continuing with professional development and research – I am currently doing a Masters with research into understanding the relational impact in hetrosexual relationships when the female has higher sexual desire than the male. I am a frequent contributor to the media talking about sex and relationships in newspapers, magazines and appearing on Radio 4 Women’s Hour.
