I am currently offering therapy on Zoom for individuals and intimate partners. I am a qualified and experienced relationship counsellor working with all relationship issues, and I know these can be made more difficult by the challenging times in which we are living.
I work with clients to improve their communication and mutual understanding, to find what is true and helpful for them, and to help them find ways to live the lives that they want to live.
Individuals and intimate partners come to counselling for a wide range of reasons. These might include wanting to:
· improve an existing relationship
· get help with sexual problems
· heal connection following betrayal
· look at issues around divorce/relationship breakdown
I help clients with sex problems, including unreliable erections, rapid ejaculation, vaginismus, pain on penetration, as well as low desire and orgasmic problems in both men and women. I work with compulsive or out of control sexual behaviours such as problematic porn use and having multiple affairs. These behaviours have been called sex/porn addiction. I also work with partners who have been affected by the compulsive/out of control sexual behaviour of others.
My counselling offers a respectful and sex positive environment to explore challenging issues and find ways to help you hear each other and restore connection. I recognise that it is important that I tune into where you are and I work at your pace rather than my own.
I have experience of counselling clients in retirement. Older clients can have particular issues with sex and connection in later life, helping to find a good balance between freedom and loving commitment. Relationships change over time, particularly as we live longer and expect more out of life. I can help partners look at the love and relationship rules that work for them, the ones that don’t, and have the conversations they need to have.
I previously used to work with Relate as a qualified relationship counsellor and I am now working in private practice.
I have many years of experience with Men’s work and I use insights I have gained to help men find their voice: what do I want, is that ok and how do I talk about it? I know that men are not always as open or transparent as they would like to be in relationship.
I know that living out of alignment with one's values can be difficult and painful.
I am Poly friendly and I know that this is something clients might be curious about and want to explore. I am also Kink friendly and know whilst this may be part of a client's life, it is not the main reason they come to counselling, and sometimes it is.
I am a passionate advocate of mindfulness and use this with clients.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), abide by the Code of Ethics and carry full insurance.
