About me and my therapy practice
I am a warm and empathic Sex and Relationship Therapist who has worked with people since 1998 and as a Therapist since 2013. I am trained in Emotionally Focussed Therapy (Attachment Theory), Encounter Based Therapy, Internal Family Systems (for individuals and couples), Sensorimotor Therapy (Trauma Themes) and Clean Language training. I work with individuals and couples and I also run workshops and talks on communication, flirting and opening the heart. I also have two podcasts online interviewing people about their passions and meditations to support people to open and relax.
I see people for an initial session to see what they would like to work on and to assess the situation, offer a diagnosis and a prognosis and then we arrange a number of session.
I follow the standard approach for Psychosexual Therapy. If there is crisis we deal with the crisis. We then start by making sense of your relationship history and contributing factors that are affecting your relationship today. We work together to formulate a behavioural program of exercises that you do at home together to build sexual confidence and connection.
I also can teach you how to connect more deeply as a couple through. I can take you on a journey where we work for sessions to support you to open up and really listen to each other.
What Kind of Individual / Couples Do I see?
If you are in a relationship it's best to come as a couple. I would see you together mostly with occasional individual sessions. I see same sex couples, heterosexual couples, disabled couples and couples with differing sexual desires, needs and issues.
If you partner is unwilling to come you can come alone.
I work with many individuals who are not in a relationship and would like to be. We look at the kind of partners you are attracting, self-esteem building and how to move towards the kind of the relationship you want. Individuals dealing with sexual addictions, sexual dysfunctions and lack of sexual experience are also welcome. Many people are able to develop healthy sex lives and relationships once they get the support to deal with the isssues and anxieties they may have. Once you realise that you are not alone and that many people have gone through the same things and learned the tools to be confident it can change your life. Just give me a call to start talking.
