The majority of sexual problems are caused by a mixture of physical and psychological factors. Therefore, my treatment approach is an integrated treatment programme that combines specialist medical and psychotherapeutic interventions to achieve the best outcomes.
I am an expert in dealing with sexual problems of all degrees of complexity; however, my particular expertise is helping people with complex and enduring sexual difficulties associated with chronic physical and mental health conditions.
I worked as an NHS consultant psychiatrist at the national psychosexual service at the Maudsley Hospital between 2009 and 2017, where I led a team of doctors and psychologists.
Common sexual difficulties I can help with:
Lack or loss of sexual desire
Difficulties with achieving and mainlining erection
Premature, retarded ejaculation and non-ejaculation
Painful sex (vaginismus and dyspareunia)
Hypersexual disorder / sexual addiction
Other disorders related to sexuality and sexual functioning
Intimate relationship disharmony
Psychological or physical problems following sexual abuse or violence (psychosexual rehabilitation)
Problematic sexual preferences that could result in physical or emotional damage to patient and/or their sexual partner(s)
