Mary Clegg, Sex and Relationship Psychotherapist
Getting reliable help for relationship issues and/or sexual difficulties can be problematic. Mary offers relationship counselling for couples or individuals with a very flexible but dynamtic approach. Her warm and friendly way of working is mainly systemic, but she is able to work using CBT or psychodynamic models. She is comfortable and confident working with all aspects of sexuality. She realises through her experience that relationship or sexual difficulties need a proactive and timely response and her challenging way of working really gets to the root of difficulties quickly so that there is no time wasted to get the result that her clients need.
Quote: " Mary was not the cheapest therapist in town, but she really got to the root of our problems quickly".
