Geraldine Myers MBACP, MCOSRT
I am an experienced couples counsellor and psychosexual therapist working with individuals and couples on a wide range of issues. Relationships can be a struggle at times and many people find that talking in confidence to an experienced relationship therapist enables them to explore their difficulties and find new and helpful ways forward, whether you find yourself at a crisis point or simply want to fine tune the relationship. I am qualified as a sex addiction specialist, working with addicts on recovery, partners or the affected couple to help rebuild a damaged relationship.
The sort of difficulties that clients bring, whether on their own or as a couple, are:
* Relationship and intimacy problems
* Separation and divorce
* Psychosexual difficulties
* Sex, love or porn addiction and other compulsive sexual behaviours.
* Bereavement, loss and grief
* Depression, stress and anxiety
* Unhappy with life or career- seeking greater contentment and control of your life
* Feelings of anger, mood swings
* Low self esteem and body image problems
I am also trained as an outplacement consultant, career counsellor and coach.
I can work on an open ended basis, but can also work within a fixed number of sessions or longer term.
I am based at my private practice in Ewell, Surrey (close to Epsom), within close access to train, bus and main road links. Disabled access and free parking outside.

I understand that making the decision to seek help is a big step to take. Coming to see a counsellor and talk about very personal matters can feel daunting and embarrassing, but I am here to help and not to judge. I will treat you with discretion, respect and confidentiality. Details about you and what is discussed remain strictly confidential. I follow the BACP and COSRT codes of conduct and ethics.
