I gained my Registered General Nurse qualification from St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London in 1984 and qualified as a sex therapist in 2003.
This dual qualification enables me to manage patients in an holistic way combining pharmacotherapy and behavioural techniques. I achieved a Developing Practice Award from The Queen’s Nursing Institute to develop an information package for patients and partners regarding erectile dysfunction. I have worked on several advisory boards regarding the development of therapies for erectile dysfunction and its management. I regularly attend specialist international conferences on sexual health. I am also a Trustee and Treasurer of the Sexual Advice Association and Specialist Advisor to Macmillan Cancer Support and Prostate Cancer UK. I am a member of the British and European Societies of Sexual Medicine ( BSSM & ESSM ) and College of Sex and Relationship Therapists (COSRT). I have particular expertise caring for patients who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer as often a variety of sexual issues develop. Consideration is not only for the patient but if in a relationship also their partner(s).
Consultations will typically last 50 minutes and the charge is £200.00 per consultation. During this time I will obtain a detailed understanding of your situation. You may attend with your partner if you so desire.
Note: Consultation fees are due prior to your appointment. Please be aware that private health insurance companies do not always cover this.
The following health insurance companies will often cover your consultation fee with me depending on your policy. I would advise speaking to them before booking to confirm.
