Margaret Jones MA
I am a UKCP registered couple and psychosexual therapist and clinical supervisor. I have 25 years experience both for Relate and in private practice, working with individuals and couples.
My current practice is primarily supervision of qualified and student therapists and clinical consultation to a range of caring professionals.
I have a limited number of appointments available for clients. As a qualified EMDR therapist I work with clients where historic or recent trauma or phobia inhibits their lives and am particularly interested to work with clients who believe their sexual difficulties are a result of trauma.
I am a registered psychotherapy provider for BUPA .
In addition I am retained by leading EAP providers to offer brief therapy for workplace issues.

My experience is with indivuals and couples experiencing relationship difficulties. A further specialisation is psychosexual therapy whIch treats specific sexual dysfunctions for both male and female clients . A thourough assessment is made with both partner or the individual and a treatment programme is created to treat difficulties such as painful intercourse, inability to allow penetration, premature/delayed ejaculation , erectile difficulties and loss of sexual desire.
EMDR therapy works with trauma which is imapcting your life. Examples may be road traffic accidents, childhood abuse, traumatic childbirth.
