Sex and Relationship Therapist (COSRT)
I am a fully qualified and experienced psychosexual and relationship therapist and a registered member of the Council of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT)
I strongly believe that all relationships can be better, and the impact of better relationships can be hugely positive for ourselves, our partners and those we are close to including, children, family and friends.
My approach is integrative, which means I adapt how I work to find what works for my clients. I use ideas from various approaches including humanistic, existential, Imago, Emotionally Focussed Therapy, and attachment theory.
I may also suggest exercises that you can work on at home and then bring back to therapy to explore what you have discovered.
You are the expert on yourself and your relationships, and it is my job to help you solve your own problems. In therapy, we will work collaboratively to explore unhelpful patterns of thought and behaviour and uncover what is causing them.
With that increased awareness you then have the choice to do something different and lead a happier and more fulfilled life.
Some of the relationship issues that I help clients with include:
- Improving communication and understanding
- Dealing with conflict and arguing better
- Entering long-term commitment consciously
- Infidelity and rebuilding trust
- Improving emotional and physical intimacy
- Working to end relationships on good terms
- Consensual non-monogamy
- Step and blended families
Some of the psychosexual issues that I help clients with include:
- Low or mismatched desire
- Erectile dysfunction
- Rapid or retarded ejaculation
- Pain during sex
- Inability to orgasm
My fees are £100 per 50 min session. It can be helpful for couples to have a longer initial session for a higher cost.
Sessions are generally weekly but can become fortnightly. We can work on a short or long-term basis depending on your needs, though I suggest committing to at least 6 sessions initially. We will regularly review the therapy to ensure it is working for you.
Talking about your sex life and intimate relationships is not easy. All the evidence suggests that it is the quality of the relationship between client and therapist that is the biggest factor in successful outcomes in therapy, so it is really important that you feel safe and comfortable talking to your therapist.
I think the best way to see if that’s me, is to have an initial free 20-minute consultation so please get in touch.
