Sex Therapy Treatment for individuals & couples

I work with individual men and women and with couples who experience problems in their sex lives. Part of the treatment is to discuss and identify areas of difficulties including medical issues and psychological problems.
In order to have a healthy sexuality, it is important to gain an awareness of what meaning we put on sex, as well as our sex education and other messages we may have learnt in childhood, adolescence and as an adult.
I aim to help and guide you with every step of your self-discovery.

I use Sensate Focus for individuals and couples in Psychosexual Therapy (PST). This is a programme designed to help you become intimate again and rediscover your body and each other's. Together we will identify the therapy goals. These are continually monitored and evaluated. There is a commitment to this therapy as you will need to carry out ‘homework’ and then discuss at the next session.

Sometimes, sexual problems have deeper roots in childhood and in the relationship. Some of the issues that we may discuss are:
  • Sexual abuse/rape
  • Medical conditions
  • Sexual addiction

    I am also a relationship Counsellor, I can offer support to individuals and couples with:
  • Finding solutions to conflict
  • Communicate more effectively
  • Deal with the effects of affairs
  • Rebuilding trust
  • Work together to create harmony
  • Come to terms with a future apart after the relationship has ended
  • Become intimate again and improve your sex life

    I believe in helping clients find and develop their own solutions using an integrative approach, including:
  • Psychodynamic Therapy
  • Systemic Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

    I tailor your treatment plan according to your individual needs and your specific sexual difficulties. Together we continually evaluate progress.
