Choosing a Therapist
It can be a challenge trying to find a Counsellor/Therapist when there are so many to choose from. This may be your first step towards counselling/therapy or you may have had counselling previously.
So how can you be sure that I am the right therapist for you?
I have helped many people change their relationships and lives for the better and it has been a privilege to work with so many clients. We will be on this journey together.
My counselling/therapy work
My own personal work has developed over the years. In addition to counselling, I have a special interest and training working with clients with:
- Psychosexual issues in relation to sexual desire, arousal, ejaculation/ orgasm, vaginismus, dyspareunia impacts of sexual abuse/violence.
- Relationship issues such as partner abuse, divorce and affairs.
- Addictions, in particular alcohol, drugs sex and porn addiction.
- Depression, anxiety and feelings of suicide
- Working with individuals and families affected by sexual offending/ abuse
- LGBTQ- Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender
So am I right for you?
I am happy to have a no obligation chat on the phone to discuss your situation and to discuss any reservations you might have about coming for Counselling/ Therapy.
