Adele Swift PgDip, regCOSRT. Couples Counsellor & Psychosexual Therapist
I am a fully qualified Couples Counsellor and Psychosexual Therapist and I work with clients who come to me with a wide range of sexual and relationship problems. I am happy to work with clients in-person or online, sometimes both if flexibility is required.
I have a clinically directive approach, using talking therapy to uncover fundamental aspects of the problems, then practical guidance, information and tips to resolve difficulties.
I encourage couples and individuals to be truly honest with themselves, and each other, to think about their own needs as well as their partners. This might be in areas such as affection, commitment, life goals or with sexual difficulty and satisfaction.
I often work with clients to improve their communication skills, with practical excersises to increase understanding of each others viewpoint.
I aim to guide clients towards achievable goals and to consider difficulties that could lie in the future, to increase awareness and to consider strategies that may help.
I understand that it is tricky to know how to start with therapy, so just send me an email introducing yourself and give a brief outline of what is troubling you and we can take it from there. I offer a free initial chat on the phone if you wish, and always consider a first session as introductory, a chance for you to find out if I am the right therapist for you.
Training, qualifications & experience
Following a foundation course, where I studied an Integrative Approach to general psychotherapy, I studied for my Post Graduate Diploma in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy with The London Diploma, accredited by COSRT and Middlesex University.
