Welcome to New Beginnings Therapy

Senior Accredited Sex and Relationship Psychotherapist

Specialist in Relationship Counselling and Psychosexual Therapy

Ashby de la Zouch and online

Hello and welcome to my website. If you’ve found your way here, I imagine that you have an issue in your relationship and/or a problem with your sex life and think psychotherapy may help. I hope the information that you find in these pages is useful and helps you navigate through to the next step (whatever that looks like for you).

It might not feel this way at the moment, but please know that you’re not alone in this. Many people seek help or guidance at some stage in their lives. As a psychotherapist for almost 20 years I have helped people find solutions for a wide range of challenges, including (but not limited to) relationships, sex and intimacy, trauma, domestic abuse, and other issues such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and anger problems.

Who am I?

I am a highly experienced (Relate-trained) senior-accredited Sex and Relationship Psychotherapist and accredited Clinical Supervisor based in Ashby de la Zouch (in the heart of the National Forest). Over almost 20 years in psychotherapy, I have provided therapy to individuals and couples of any age, gender and sexual orientation to help improve their well-being, relationships and sex life.


Seeking help isn’t easy and I try my best to put you at your ease during your first visit. In fact, clients regularly report how nervous they are before attending their first session, but then go on to tell me how relieved they are that they have finally taken a positive step towards finding a solution.

How counselling can help you

When we agree to work together, I provide you with a supportive, confidential and non-judgemental space in which to explore your problems in depth. Counselling can help you understand yourself and your problems, empowering you to use your own resources and capabilities to find ways to manage your emotions more effectively and make better choices in your life. I am here to listen with empathy and to offer you a fresh perspective on the challenges you are facing, which will help you make the changes you need to achieve your goals at this stage of your life. Counselling is led by you – I will not make decisions for you or offer you opinions. I truly believe that the power to change comes from within – I am here to help you find your own answers.
