Lindsay Dukes Sex and Relationship Therapist London E8Lindsay Dukes:

Sex and Relationship Therapist (COSRT)

My name is Lindsay Dukes and I am a Sex and Relationship therapist working from HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston and Dalston, Hackney, London E8 and online.

I am sex positive, meaning I respect and welcome individuals of all sexual orientations and practises (including those from LGBTQ+, kink and polyamorous communities).

I also respect and welcome individuals from all cultural and religious backgrounds.

We’re not often encouraged to talk openly about sex or the complexities of our relationships.

These are topics that can, for many, be shrouded in shame, but gaining an understanding of them can also be key to greater health, happiness and pleasure.

My aim is to provide a comfortable and confidential space where clients feel empowered to explore their intimate thoughts and feelings, and discover and communicate their needs, boundaries and desires, so as to better understand themselves and those they are in a relationship to.

I am a Pluralistic therapist, meaning I am able to draw on multiple therapeutic techniques and theories but place a strong emphasis on the client-focused, collaborative nature of the work.

I work with individuals, couples and poly groups around themes including:

  • Consensual non-monogamy
  • Erection/ejaculation problems
  • Orgasm problems
  • Vaginismus
  • Low sexual desire
  • Sexual discrepancies
  • Pain during sex
  • Sexual trauma
  • Relationship problems e.g. arguing / affairs / communication
  • Sex, gender, erotic and relationship identity concerns
  • Sexual compulsions
  • Specific sexual interests (BDSM, kinks and fetishes)

While some sexual problems can be very complex, others can be relatively simple and easy to overcome if given the correct information.

Together we can discuss the kinds of interventions that will suit you best, and work at a pace that is comfortable for you.


Individuals £75

Couples £120

Poly groups £150

I offer both student and low-income therapy on request.

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. Simply fill out the form below in confidence, and one of our fully qualified referral therapists can work with you to make sure you connect with the right practitioner and receive the correct therapy and counselling services you require.
