I am a qualified therapist who specialises in pornography and sexual addictions. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT) and The Association for the Treatment of Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity (ATSAC). I am also an associate of The Laurel Centre, which is a specialist organisation that provides help for Compulsive Sexual Behaviour Disorder (CSBD) and sexual addiction therapy.

I believe in supporting people to move on and to be in a place of recovery and hope.
