9 Abbey Grange
I am an accredited psychotherapist with more than 30 years experience. I see clients with all kinds of personal difficulty and have specialist training and expertise in sexual and relationship difficulties and gender issues (dysphoria). I worked in the NHS for 27 years as a senior psychotherapist and supervisor. I now see clients in private practice.
During my long therapy career I have helped many young people find their way in life; their identity, self esteem, dealing with family breakdown, sexuality. Having the opportunity to explore in a non judgemental way how they are experiencing their difficulties can really help them come to terms with and accept the person they are.
Working with couples of all ages has given me a real insight into what people expect in a relationship. When I started couple relationship and sex therapy training in 1985 there was very little research available into possible physical causes and how they impact on sexual functioning, this has now improved enormously and because of my NHS work I can point couples to the appropriate help. Communication difficulties has always been one of the main reasons for couple disharmony and sexual dissatisfaction for instance seems hard to confront with a partner. The benefit of using a third person is that it can take the heat out of the situation and the experienced therapist is able to sensitively look at their situation in a more balanced way. Ageing brings other difficulties, for instance women suffering vaginal dryness, men realising their erections not as strong as they were and as a couple facing empty nest syndrome and needing help in rediscovering their relationship. I really have a wealth of knowledge of all the different couple problems - financial, work, infidelity to name just a few.
I am warm and welcoming and well aware how frightening it is for some people to visit a complete stranger and be expected to 'open up' so am happy to talk on the phone and answer any of your questions before you decide if I am the right for therapist for you. My approach is eclectic and thus my work is very client centred.
