My name is Michele. I'm a registered psychotherapist (BACP) and accredited psychodynamic counsellor (UKCP) - I help individuals and couples with their emotional health. I have private sector experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist. My focus involves abuse, depression and narcissistic personality disorder, and the specific problems encountered by men, women and LGBT+ people. I offer therapy for individuals, partners, and couples affected by sex & porn addiction, in addition to substance and other behavioural addictions, and eating disorders. I also work with those who feel their sexual drive may be unnatural and driven towards compulsive and illegal behaviours such as sexual and Internet sexual abuse.
