Further information

Relationship Counselling generally takes one to six sessions.

I use Sensate Focus for couples in PST(Psychosexual Therapy). This is a programme designed to help you become intimate again and rediscover each other’s bodies. Development of shared views by me and each individual’s problems will lead to identification of therapy goals. These are continually monitored and evaluated. There is a commitment to this therapy as you will need to carry out ‘homework’ and then discuss at the next session. PST can take up to twelve sessions as it’s important to take small steps at a time.

Philosophy on counselling and psychotherapy

I believe that communication is a fundamental part of any couple relationship and that a healthy sex life is important to maintain a sound relationship.

Difficulties in a sexual relationship can occur at any time in our lives and at any age. It is therefore important to identify the problem and seek help.

Counselling can improve the quality of the couple relationship, sexual response and satisfaction.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
