Present and Past Positions:
Hello. My name is Ali. I am a sexologist.
I graduated as a medical doctor and specialised in Sexual & Relationship Psychotherapy at the Porterbrook Clinic in Sheffield – a centre of excellence, specialising in helping people with all kinds of sexual and relationship problems. Also, I have attended the world-renowned ESSM Oxford Sexual Medicine Course where I received comprehensive and rigorous training in various aspects of Sexual Medicine. In 2012, I was awarded the prestigious title of ‘Fellow of European Committee of Sexual Medicine (FECSM)’ by the Multidisciplinary Joint Committee on Sexual Medicine (MJCSM). I am currently the only clinician in and around Cambridge to hold such a qualification.
I am accredited by the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT) and served as the Vice-Chair of COSRT from 2015 to 2018.
Along with clinical practice, I have been actively involved in education and as an educator. I have a PhD from the University of Cambridge, UK, on educational aspects of sexual health and wellbeing. In 2016, I co-founded Cambridge Institute of Clinical Sexology intending to improve sexual wellbeing through professional education in interdisciplinary clinical sexology.
I currently practice as a sex therapist for the NHS, Relate, and privately. I also provide consultation to organisations and programmes, healthcare professionals, researchers, educators and schools, as well as parents on various sexual health and wellbeing and issues.
