About me

Life and career

I’ve been an author (a memoir, novels, and short stories), journalist (in the UK and abroad), and broadcaster, and a lot of other things in between. I’ve spent a number of years promoting sexual awareness through the arts, media and charity work.

Continuing Professional Development

Three years ago I started the practice London Sex & Relationships Therapy. There are now seven of us. We offer counselling and psychotherapy with a GSRD focus. We also offer training on a wide range of topics to media, charities and training organisations. We meet monthly for peer supervision.

I regularly attend Pink Therapy’s ‘Advanced Clinical Discussions: Kink’.

I’ve been involved with the campaigning sex education organisation Sense About Sex.

To keep my practice up to date, I read books and journals and attend conferences and events:

  • I have trained other therapists about gender/sexual diversity in the therapy room.
  • I gave a talk about the Sex Escalator at Hackney Attic.

  • I have provided counselling services at festivals.
