    Sexual Counselling

    There are many issues relating to sex. It is a very complex subject and requires very specific training. I am proud to say that I did my initial training with ASSERT in Sydney over 25 years ago. I attend seminars and numerous on-going supervision and learn all the up-to date information and research on everything related to sex. I am a member of SAS Society of Australian Sexologists. My expertise covers:

    Male issues:

    • erectile problems
    • premature ejaculation
    • penis dysmorphia
    • Sex after prostate cancer
    • low interest in sex
    • delayed ejaculation
    • sexual abuse
    • sex addiction

    Female issues

    • Anorgasmic
    • Vaginismus
    • Dyspareunia
    • Sex during and after pregnancy
    • Low or no interest in sex
    • Sex and menopause
    • Becoming orgasmic
    • Sexual abuse
    • Sex and IVF
    • Sex addiction
    • Poor body image

    relationship issues: which is more often than not the catalyst for poor sexual relationships

    • Sexual discrepancy for both males and females
    • Resurrecting love and passion
    • The difference between sexual and non-sexual affection

    Male/female issues

    • Transgender issues
    • Gay/Lesbian issues and sexuality
    • Sex addiction
    • Pornography addiction
    • Fettishes
    • Internet sex

    Teenage Sex

    • Sexual education
    • what boys should know about girls
    • what girls should know about boys
    • sexuality issues

    I find many people need sexual education in spite of age and many people still refuse to talk about the subject in a open and objective way. I recognize many people fear talking to a sex therapist. The best sex, the best relationships start with communication. Therefore I counsel people in a relaxed setting and bring humor, objective explanations re their issues and empathy to all sessions. I encourage my clients to talk about sex objectively and honestly not only to myself, but to their partners. By communicating their fears and their needs many sexual problems are solved.


  • 70% of second marriages fail today because of the blended family and the dynamics of past relationships.

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can develop following a traumatic event that threatens your safety or makes you feel helpless.

  • Many people who suffer with sleeping disorders are anxious. I use psychotherapy, relaxation techniques and EEG Neurological Biofeedback to treat this disorder.

  • We all live in a very anxiety provoking world today and many thousands of people experience bouts of anxiety or depression.
