William Conant BSc (Hons) MUPCA COSRT
36-42 Kings Road
I originally trained as an integrative counsellor at Roehampton University and have gained a great deal of experience working in a variety of settings including the NHS, charitable organisations and in my own practice. Issues that I have successfully worked with include depression, anxiety, anger, addiction and trauma. A biographical list of my training and work experience can be found below. However, since originally qualifying as a therapist I have had a growing interest in sexual and relationship issues.
As such i have undertaken a 2 year post-graduate diploma in psychosexual and relationship therapy that has allowed me to increase my knowledge of working in this area. Working with couples I can offer a non-judgemental space in which to improve their communication, understanding of each others' needs and thus helping to create a stable and growing togetherness within the relationship.
As well as working with relationship issues I also work with individuals and couples suffering sexual dysfunctions, such as low libido, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, delayed ejaculation, penetration difficulties, vaginismus, dyspareunia and sexual addiction. This often involves exploring the underlying causal effects of the dysfunction whilst beginning to implement certain practical exercises to aid recovery from these issues.
For more information and exploring the possibility of working together I do encourage potential clients to contact me by telephone. A phone call, rather than an e-mail, often gives a better indication as to whether we are suited to work together before committing to an assessment. After an assessment clients are welcome to leave and take some time so as to think about the session and make a decision to undertake therapy.
I am a member of the UPCA (Universities Psychotherapy & Counselling Association) and COSRT (College of Sexual & Relationship Therapists).
