Claire Serridge Dip. Couns., PG Dip., MBACP, COSRT Accredited
I am a qualified Psychosexual and Relationship Therapist, currently practicing within the NHS. I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and COSRT (College of Sexual and Relationship Therapy) and I follow their code of ethics.
I provide psychosexual therapy to clients from diverse educational and vocational backgrounds with psychosexual issues. I use an integrative approach, offering non-judgemental therapy to couples and individuals of any age, gender or sexual orientation. This includes various approaches including education and normalisation.
Common sexual problems which can be treated effectively with psychosexual therapy include: dyspareunia, vaginismus, anorgasmia, erectile dysfunction, rapid ejaculation, delayed ejaculation. I also work with sex addiction and I offer support for partners or family members affected by addictions. Other issues include difficulties associated with age, illness, gender identity, disability, menopause, lack of desire, use of pornography and past sexual abuse.
As a specialist in relationship therapy, I provide therapeutic support to heterosexual and same sex couples and individuals with relationship and psychological issues. Treatment involves, use of various communication tools, education and normalisation.
I currently work for the NHS in various clinics around Lancashire and St. Mary's Hospital, Manchester, where I have gained an extensive amount of experience in all areas of psychosexual therapy.
I also gained experience in workplace issues, having worked alongside Human Resources, in a large media organisation for over 18 years.
One never knows what path their life is going to take. Everybody’s road is different and we all cope in our own way. Some of us cope with issues as they happen, others put them away in the hope they will disappear. However big or small your issue is or however smooth or rough your road of life is, Well Road Therapy will help you deal with it in a way that’s comfortable for you.
Please feel free to contact me where we can discuss, in complete confidentiality, the possibility of working together.

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.
