Katarina Gjertsen - Specialist in Relationship and Psychosexual Therapy
I am experienced and accredited relationship and psychosexual therapist.
I offer help and support to couples that are experiencing difficulties in their relationships. Over the years I have helped many couples to navigate through the intricate 'relationship jungle' from teaching new communication skills, through improving sex lives, to dealing with addictions.
I also support individuals that struggle in a relationship or just came out of a relationship. I offer new understanding and tools that help people to make clear and positive decisions.
My other strengths as a psychosexual therapist are dealing with psychosexual presentations such as Vaginismus, Erectile difficulties, Premature ejaculation and Loss of Sexual Desire.
I offer individual and couples sessions.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists
COSRT is the UK’s leading membership organisation for therapists specialising in sexual and relationship issues.
