Hi folks, I'm Heidi and 

I believe everyone is entitled to a fulfilling sex life no matter an individual’s background, gender or sexual preference. I specialise in supporting people diagnosed with sexually transmitted infections (STIs), HIV , working with couples and also assisting people to address sexual issues like sexual dysfunctions.

I understand the sensitivity and difficulty people experience when dealing with sexual issues so I want this to be platform where people feel comfortable to ask me anything relating to sexual health.
