Albertina Fisher Psychosexual Therapist MSc, Reg. MBACP, COSRT
Intimate relationships can sometimes be difficult and even painful, whether we are currently in one, have recently left one, or are alone and longing to be part of a couple.
I specialise in helping people with sexual and relationship issues as they affect both individuals and couples. Having qualified in Pscyhosexual therapy and Couples and Individual Psychotherapy with the world renowned Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships in London, I have specialised skills in counselling couples in distress, who have reached a crisis point in their relationship, who feel stuck, who are considering separating or are going through a separation, or who just want to make things better!
Going to counselling can be a daunting prospect, and even more so if you are considering coming as a couple. You may worry that the counsellor will take sides, that you will not be understood, or that your partner will misrepresent you. As a specially trained and experienced couples counsellor, I understand your concerns. You can be assured that I will be able to provide a supportive, neutral environment in which it becomes possible to think and communicate in ways you may find it difficult to do on your own at the moment.
As a qualified psychosexual therapist, I have specialist knowledge and skills to help couples and individuals with sexual difficulties.
If you want to have counselling as an individual, you will find me a warm, supportive and insightful therapist who will gently challenge you to reach a deeper understanding of yourself, and support you as you take more responsibility for your happiness.
To get started
Please feel free to contact me through the contact form (using the Email button) on this website. I will always reply to your enquiry, so if you have not received an email after a few days, please check your Spam folder. After this, we can agree a mutually convenient time for a phone call to briefly discuss your current issues, and the help I can offer. If this seems like the right kind of support for you, we will arrange to meet face-to-face for an initial consultation session, after which you can decide whether to continue with regular sessions. Sessions will take place once a week, and can go on for as short or as long a time as you need.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
