Sex On The Couch

I appear on the programme Sex On The Couch available as a boxset on BBC3 iPlayer, as well as weekly on BBC1 on Fridays after Graham Norton, from the 26th April 2019.
Sex On The Couch is a six-part series offering a unique insight into modern relationships and the pressures they face by following real-life couples as they bring their sexual and emotional issues to a specially constructed clinic. With the support of a team of four therapists, the couples will try to solve their problematic sex lives, discovering that to do this often means dealing with issues at the heart of their relationships.
Therapists: Kate Moyle, Dr Roberta Babb, Lohani Noor and Silva Neves.

Media work . Sunday Times

Sunday Times

I was interviewed for the Sunday Times on the topic of sexual abuse and BDSM practices.

Many people practicing BDSM do not have a history of sexual abuse. And many people who have been sexually abused are not attracted to BDSM. But for many, BDSM practice is a powerful healing process after sexual abuse as well as thriving sexually and being intimacy-enhancing. It is a great way to feel connected to your partner and experience deep trust within the erotic and sexual area. The practice must follow the three pillars of BDSM: 'Safe. Sane. Consensual', otherwise it can be re-traumatising and distressing.
If you're interested in BDSM, research how to practice safely first, talk to the people in the community and take one step at a time.

Expert interviews

I am regularly asked to offer my expert opinion on topics regarding sex, relationships and trauma.

  • Recently, I was interviewed by Jo Murphy for Sustain Natural on the topic of 'sex addiction'. Changing language around mental health is so important. The term 'sex addiction' has taken on cultural meaning with no clinical backing. The label 'addiction' is limiting and can be damaging. You can read the full article Here
