Sexual or relationship concerns can be difficult to talk about and may negatively impact on our emotional well-being. Intimate problems often do not get better on their own and sex and relationship therapy can assist you to achieve the healthy, happy sex life your deserve.
I have a strong commitment to working with people to improve their sexual and interpersonal relationship, help people explore ways to have more pleasurable experiences and a special interest in supporting the LGBTIQA+ community.
I have over 20 years counselling experience as a social worker prior to pursuing my Master's degree in Sexual Health Counselling at Sydney University. I have counselled people over many years in a variety of settings and have extensive experience in sexual health counselling and working with individuals, couples and people in polyamorous and open relationships. I am an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker able to offer Medicare rebates, an Accredited Clinical Psychosexual Therapist and the Immediate Past National Chairperson of the Society of Australian Sexologists Ltd . I am committed to maintaining professional ethics and standards within the field of sexology and sexual health.
My approach is non-judgemental and accepting of all experiences, identities, expressions and orientations. I am a kink friendly practitioner who understands that sexuality can be experienced in unique and complex ways. I have considerable experience working with individials and people in LGBTIQA+ relationships and understand the pressures that come with same-sex relationships, disclosure, intimacy, internalised homo/trans/biphobia and exploring asexuality.
I am experienced in assisting transgender and gender diverse people, their partners and family members dealing with gender dysphoria, identity difficulties, changing relationships and transition.
I am experienced in providing counselling support to sex workers.
I have considerable professional experience working with a range of issues including people newly diagnosed with STIs and people living with HIV.
I recognise that talking about personal matters and especially sexual ones can sometimes be difficult. I provide a relaxed environment for people to openly speak about sex and sexuality whilst exploring outcomes and alternatives to your sexual and interpersonal difficulties.
