Hi, I’m George

I hope to expand your sexual world by opening your mind to new possibilities, identifying barriers to sexual intimacy, and providing sexual knowledge and strategies to enhance sexual pleasure.

I have wide-ranging experience in human sexuality, both personally and professionally. I take an adventurous and inquisitive approach to sex. I find people’s sexuality intriguing and rich with meaning.

I view therapy as a flexible, dynamic, exploratory and collaborative process of self discovery. My aim is to foster self-understanding and curiosity. I provide direct interventions and help you develop a network of supports where you can gently stretch out of your comfort zone and achieve your desired outcome.

My Approach

  1. Define an objective, outcome or goal
  2. Identifying pathways and obstacles to achieving these outcomes
  3. Teaching skills and techniques as required
  4. Enhancing motivation and goodwill to change

Experience

I have worked in private practice specialising in the area of sexuality, gender, sexual function and relationships for the last 14 years.

Prior to private practice I worked for 4 years in public sexual health, drug and alcohol at Kirketon Road Centre, Sydney Hospital.

Previous to that I worked for 8 years in acute inpatient and community mental health settings as a clinical nurse specialist at St Vincents Hospital. I also ran the group in-patient program during this time.

My background as a registered sexual and mental health nurse provides me with a comprehensive understanding of the impact of physical illness on individual and couple sexuality.

I hold Master Degrees in Clinical Psychology (MQU) and Sexual Health (USyd).

I hold Bachelor Degrees in Psychology (Hons.) (UNSW) & Nursing (UOW).

I am a Fellow of the College of Clinical Psychologists and a professional member of Australian Psychological Society (APS)

I adhere to the APS code of Ethics and Charter for Clients of Psychologists.

I am a member of the Australian Association for Transgender Health (AusPATH) and the Word Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) as well as the Australian and New Zealand Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abuse(ANZATSA)
