Sex Therapy

 Sex is a simple word for an extremely complex variety of desires. It cuts to the core of our desires, our passions, our emotions, our feeling, our wants and our dreams. It is when it goes wrong that it can be harmful and damaging in our relationships and our lives. 


I offer sex therapy to individuals presenting with a wide range of emotional and sexual intimacy difficulties.

I have a particular interest in working with people who have sexuality concerns such as sex addiction, porn addiction, atypical sexual practices, loss of interest in sex (low desire), low sex drive, erectile problems, (OCSB) problems (including pornography addiction/compulsion), at risk sexual behaviours, diversity of sexual practice, sexual functioning and sexual identity or orientation, and gender dysphoria.

My practice also includes working with individuals rebuilding their lives after recovering from sexual abuse, traumatic experiences, complex trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).  

My focus is on an authentic and conscious presence. I am practical, and I often use humour. I draw on a variety of counselling modalities to assist clients to engage consciously and authentically to themselves as well as to others.

- Trauma Sensitive Yoga -

Yoga has shown to be an effective method for healing trauma held in the body, and can be a powerful complement to other forms of therapy.


Trauma-informed Yoga is taught in a very specific manner, emphasizing control over one’s own experience.

‘Being In Your Body’ uses gentle movement, reflectivity and mindfulness based techniques to invite participants into a relationship with their bodies at a pace that feels helpful to them.


The material is offered in such a way that participants can moderate the amount they choose to do (an important part of trauma sensitive rationale).

Course comprising 6 sessions – 90 minutes – all equipment included: $150.00

" I met Louise on the back of a dramatic and emotional revelation to my wife about my addiction to internet porn.  Since then Louise has guided me through understanding the causes my habit, working with my thoughts, feelings and emotions.  She has enabled me to learn about how the brain works, and its enormous power to rewire, relearn and ultimately repair.  She has put me on a path to healing myself for me, for my wife, for our relationship and for our children.  She has given me hope when it felt that there was no hope "

" Meeting Louise has been life changing for me. Her guidance and wise words in a really relaxed environment made my visits enjoyable and un-pressured.

Thank you so much Louise "

" I can't thank you enough for your support and loving energy. Thank you for creating a loving space for me to release and thank you for helping me get back on the rails "

" Louise gave me a far greater gift than simply the solution to my problems.  She gave me the skills and resources to heal myself. Be good to yourself, and allow her to be as positive an influence in your life as she is in mine! "

I wanted also to acknowledge how grateful I was to meet you. Your enthusiasm in infectious! Thank you for helping me change my life!!!

Louise is incredible, my value of life has shot through the roof thanks to her help! Fantastic experience, life changing


"Very nice to meet you today. Thank you very much for such an engaging, positive, and practical session today. Definitely most valuable counselling session I’ve ever had. Meant a lot to me"

“A memory without the emotional charge is called wisdom”

"This is the first time in human history that we have had the entire world on a pause. If we are going to wake up, then I think we need a wake-up call. We are stepping into a place where there is uncertainty and we are moving from what we know about ourselves and our lives into the unknown!"
