Emma Waring qualified from St Bartholomew’s Hospital in 1992 as a registered general nurse. Emma went on to specialise in cardiac nursing and in 2001 she obtained a degree in critical care nursing from King’s College. She moved into a specialist nursing role at Guys and St Thomas’ and along with Dr Graham Jackson, was involved in setting up a clinic to specifically treat erectile dysfunction in cardiac patients. This unique clinic enabled them to present their work both nationally and internationally.
In addition to her work as a specialist nurse, Emma has also obtained a post graduate diploma in psychosexual therapy at the University of Central Lancashire. This has led to her expanding her role within Guy’s hospital to the Sex and Relationship clinic, working working as a sex and relationship therapist.
Emma won the Nursing Times rising star award in 2004 in recognition for her unique work as both a sex and relationship therapist and specialist nurse.
In October 2011 Emma joined the London Bridge Hospital as a psychosexual nurse therapist and has set up a psychosexual therapy service for patients/couples experiencing sexual difficulties and/or relationship problems.
