What to Expect

After an initial assessment in Mayfair, London, there is no need to continue if you prefer not to. We can use the time to discuss the current concerns for which you seek Counselling, Psychosexual Therapy or Psychotherapy. I will discuss confidentiality with you and address any questions you may have. We can see how well we work together. You and I will then be able to decide if my mental health practice is right for you.


Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You decide which matter concerning your childhood or adult life you discuss. The aim of Counselling is to enable you to speak about a difficulty and find a solution which is right for you.

Psychosexual Therapy

Psychosexual Therapy concentrates on treating the sexual difficulties you experience. When appropriate, you complete treatment tasks privately at your home. Psychosexual Therapy seeks to help you overcome sexual problems.


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you obtaining insight into the problems you face. It considers your ideas, emotions and relevant events in your history. Psychotherapy intends to help you develop or discover appropriate methods of coping.
