Private Practice

For the time being I am not accepting new patients in order to concentrate on my current list. One of my colleagues at Gendercare may be able to help for gender related matters. For other matters please Try Pink Therapy, the BACP, or the UKCP.

I can assist with any of the practices and identities covered in my book including:

  • Trans
  • Intersex/DSD
  • Cisgender
  • Non-binary/genderqueer
  • BDSM/Kink
  • Asexuality
  • Bisexuality
  • Lesbian
  • Gay
  • Heterosexuality
  • Cross-dressing
  • Infantilism/ABDL
  • Furry
  • Fetish
  • Monogamy
  • Non-monogamies

I can also assist with common issues such as depression and anxiety, job difficulties, relationship difficulties, bereavement, personal losses and similar issues.

Under 21s and Carer referrals
Unfortunately I do not see people under the age of 21 unless you are in work or at university, or other similar full-time occupation. I do not accept referrals from carers in my private practice. I do accept professional referrals.

I provide:

Psychotherapy for Individuals

Relationship therapy (For two or more people)

Assessment for physical treatments such as hormones and surgeries

Psychotherapy for people who feel uncertain or unhappy about their transition

Written reports:
A comprehensive written report is included in the assessment fee. This can be addressed to the referrer and/or the individual themselves.

I can also undertake GRC reports for people I have seen personally.

Professional Witness work
I will not generally act as a Professional Witness unless summonsed to do so. I do act as an Expert Witness, but, of course that is a separate matter and I cannot have met the client beforehand.

Payment methods:
Payment can be by cash if meeting in person or PayPal.

I do not deal directly with medical insurance companies and will expect medically insured clients to obtain reimbursement themselves from their insurance company.

Accreditation
My accrediting bodies are the BACP and the HCPC.

Accessibility
Unfortunately my rooms require stairs to access them. If you cannot use stairs, or have other access needs, do contact me and I will see if alternative arrangements can be made.

I am afraid there is no facility for people to wait for people having their appointment. Please make alternate arrangements if you arrive with someone who will not be in the session with you.

Private Practice Contact
Please note I will not receive contact regarding my private practice through my NHS clinics. This is because I am not contracted to work privately when I am at work within the NHS; and the administrative staff are accordingly not allowed by the NHS Trusts  I work at to pass on any  information to me, including the fact that you have called.

Instead, please e-mail me.
