Dr Anna Laws, DClinPsy, PGDip,PST
I am a fully qualified Clinical Psychologist and specialist sex therapist working in the NHS in a Gender Identity Clinic.
We meet in a comfortable and confidential setting where you will feel relaxed and supported to be able to think about the difficulties that you are having.
I have a background in working with people who have experienced trauma and interpersonal problems which cause them difficulties in day to day life. I often work successfully with people who have problems that they feel are long term, 'untreatable' or who have had therapy before.
In addition to these broader difficulties I also offer help to people experiencing sexual difficulties.
I provide psychosexual therapy privately for couples and individuals facing a wide range of difficulties in their sex life.There are many more details about what psychosexual therapy involves and what to expect on my website www.sextherapyne.co.uk
Whether you are in a relationship or not, if you want to address some sexual difficulties then do get in touch.
I am happy to discuss your difficulties with you if you feel that I might be able to help, so please use the contact details here to request a telephone call for a free consultation.

I offer the first consultation for free, by telephone, so that we can decide together whether or not therapy is right for you.
This usually lasts about 30 minutes. There is a form on my website for you to complete or you can use the number listed on this page and I will call you back at a convenient time.
If we decide to continue into therapy then subsequent 50 minute sessions cost £60.
