Bjorn Ventris Sex and Relationship Therapist London E8Bjorn Ventris:

Sex and Relationship Therapist (COSRT)

My name is Bjorn Ventris. My pronouns are he/him. I am a sex and relationship therapist working from HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston and Dalston, Hackney, London E8 and online.

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 work with couples and individuals, of all backgrounds and orientations, to help them improve their relationships and sex lives.

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
  • Vaginismus
  • 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I Seek Therapy?

Many people, new to this type of help, believe that they need to be suffering from “mental illness” or serious “psychological problems”, or be in crisis in order for therapy and counselling to be appropriate for them. This is a common misconception; anyone can benefit from therapy when it comes to helping you deal with your personal feelings and problems, make positive changes in your life, and understand yourself better.

So what is therapy and counselling? If you’re new to this world then the first steps can sometimes be the most difficult. Therapy can be a very effective treatment for a whole range of personal problems covering areas from physical and emotional problems, different types of behavioural disorders, through to human sexuality issues and a host of wellbeing and complementary therapy techniques.

Any problem you have that is causing you concern, anxiety or distress is a valid and appropriate reason to reach out and find a therapist and talk to them about it. Far from something to be ashamed of, acknowledging your vulnerability and asking for help is a sign of maturity and strength.

If you feel that you have a desire and are committed to making changes in your life in order to overcome your current problems and achieve more long-term satisfaction, psychological wellbeing and personal fulfilment, then you are ready to seek therapy. We are here to help you work through a wide range of therapy issues that might be troubling you.

Will Information About Me Be Safe & Secure?

It is quite normal to be hesitant when it comes to sharing private and intimate information about yourself with a stranger. You may fear that you will receive judgment from your therapist, or that your therapist will share your details with others.

HQ Therapy Rooms takes your privacy and confidentiality very seriously. Our therapists are required to keep everything said in therapy sessions between you, just like your doctor is required to keep your records private.

For therapy to be effective, there must be unconditional trust built between you and your therapist, and this relies on a shared understanding of confidentiality. It applies to the outside world as well: it is standard practice for therapists not to acknowledge their clients if they run into them outside of the therapy rooms in order to help protect their client’s confidentiality. Read our full privacy policy for more information.

Can I Contact You For Advice About Getting Therapy?

Talking about your thoughts and feelings with a supportive therapist can often make you feel better and help you face your problems. It feels good to be listened to and to know that someone cares about you and wants to help. It is important that you find a therapist with whom you feel comfortable and can build a trusting relationship to help you make positive changes in your life.

But how do you know what type of therapy is right for you? Taking the first steps in finding the right therapist can be the biggest hurdle for newcomers, so we have made it easy.
