I am a psychosexual and relationship therapist who works with individuals and couples who are experiencing sexual difficulties and/or relationship issues.
My therapeutic approach in my relationship counselling is integrated so I work systemically and psychodynamically and use some Cognitive Behaviourial Therapy (CBT) techniques too. This blend can be helpful in making sense of you as a person/couple, life experiences and upbringing that may have formed beliefs about yourself, relationships and how you attach to others. I also look at the wider context and influences to help you gain insight into your specific difficulties which helps to make sense of your problems, your behaviours and the thoughts and feelings generated. Within my sex therapy, I follow a CBT framework which ensures that there is a detailed assessment to make sense of your sexual difficulties. This is helpful to understand what may have triggered the arrival of your sexual difficulties, what might have made you/your partner vulnerable to developing those difficulties and what might be influencing the problems continuing. This can help you understand 'Why is this happening to me/us?' and enable a tailored treatment programme to be put together. Sex Therapy follows a structured process, so you take little progressive steps towards your goals which helps to reduce any anxiety and work through any stumbling blocks that may crop up along the way.
The aim is that you ultimately leave relationship or sex therapy with your own toolkit for self maintenance, knowing what to do if things were to slip in the future and this can feel hugely empowering.
Therapy can be offered a variety of ways - face to face where I practice in Doncaster, South Yorkshire or by email, telephone, webcam or scheduled live chat if this is more convenient to you. Please see more information on my website https://www.sexualwellbeinguk.co.uk on the options available to help you decide which medium may work best for you.
The types of Relationship issues that I work with can be varied but may include a breakdown in communication and intimacy, infidelity, the impact of changing roles and responsibilities, external pressures on the relationship, loss of a relationship etc. The range of sexual difficulties I work with include (but are not limited to) sexual avoidance and fears of intimacy, loss of sexual interest and desire, erectile difficulties, painful sex, fear of penetration, ejaculatory difficulties, arousal or orgasmic difficulties, sexual trauma and sexual abuse. I can also undertake initial assessments for sex addiction or sexually compulsive behaviour and work with couples affected by this.
