Lesley Boswell (MBACP) Psychosexual and Relationship Therapist
I am a specialist Psychosexual and Relationship Therapist with experience of working in the NHS, private practice and charitable sector. I work with individuals and couples. (LGBTI) individuals and couples are welcome. Please take a look at my website www.betweenpeople.co.uk
I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Relationship and Psychosexual Therapy, an Advanced Diploma in Counselling and a Masters in Medicine,Law and Ethics. I have specialist training in Sex Addiction and Compulsive Sexual Behaviours, for example pornography.
Sexual difficulties and their impact on the individual and the couple relationship can be difficult to talk about ,for example low sexual desire, painful intercourse, erectile difficulties, physical illness,body dysphoria.
Facing a crisis alone about gender with self or close other can be isolating too.
Also sex addiction and compulsive sexual behaviours can cause significant difficulties for individuals and partners, for example compulsive use of internet pornography,excessive masturbation, multiple and ongoing affairs and high risk sexual behaviours.
I offer a confidential,safe and understanding place to speak about things you may not feel able to share elsewhere and to explore the impact on self and your relationship/s.
Relationship and marital /partnership therapy is also available and can help with matters such as infidelity,arguments and communication difficulties, jealousy and control,repeated difficulty in relationships or repeating unhelpful patterns.
Pre and post separation and divorce coaching is available on an individual basis, on request.
My private practice operates in Truro. Wednesday and Saturday appointments available.
