Lynn Goodwin PgDip Couns, Dip Psychosexual & Relationships MCOSRT & MBACP Accred
I am a qualified and accredited Counsellor and Psychosexual and Relationship Therapist. I can see individuals or couples for a wide variety of counselling issues and also sex and relationship issues depending on each individual/couples unique situation.
My aim is to offer a supportive and non judgmental therapeutic relationship where you can explore the issues you are facing. Perhaps the greatest benefits of counselling/psychotherapy is that it can help you feel more in control and better able to do something about an aspect of your life that simply isn’t working for you.
You can contact me via telephone or e mail and we can arrange a time to talk. We can then arrange an initial session and decide the best way forward to help look at the difficulties you are facing.

Since leaving school my background has been in Nursing and Midwifery. During my time as a Midwife I decided to study Counselling skills course which I really enjoyed. This then led me onto doing a Diploma in Person Centred Counselling and then a subsequent Diploma in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy.
My Counselling experience has come from a variety of settings. I have worked with Cruse Bereavement where I learned a lot about loss and grief and that we all grieve in our own way. I also worked with Aberdeen Foyer which works with young adults and upwards. I also have experience of working with EAP companies offering a time limited service.
I am currently working as a Counsellor with the NHS where I work with a variety of clients with many different issues. I also work as a Sex and Relationship Therapist privately and with an organisation based in Aberdeen offering therapy to Individuals and Couples with sexual and relationship problems.
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Affairs and betrayals
- Chronic fatigue syndrome/ME
- Domestic violence
- Eating disorders
- Emotional abuse
- Family issues
- Feeling sad
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
- Physical abuse
- Postnatal depression
- Pregnancy and birth
- Relationship problems
- Seasonal affective disorder (SAD)
- Separation and divorce
- Sex problems
- Sexual abuse
- Suicidal thoughts
- Work-related stress
Other areas of counselling I deal with
When people come for sex therapy these are some of the common sexual concerns they may have:
Concerns around sexual desire and arousal
Anxiety around sex and intimacy
Difficulty having an orgasm
Difficulty and fear of penetration (Vaginismus)
Pain when having intercourse (Dysparunia)
Difficulty getting and maintaining an erection
Problems with ejaculation premature or delayed
There are many more sexual difficulties that bring people to ask for help. Perhaps the first step is acknowledging that something is not how you would like it to be sexually. By coming for sex therapy and talking about your issues you are taking the steps in a safe and non-judgmental environment to work towards having a happy and fulfilling sex life.
