About me

My name is Val Northcote and I provide individual and couple’s relationship counselling as well as sex therapy and sex addiction counselling (and other addictions). My fee ranges from £50 to £60 dependent on the type of therapy offered.

Counselling can provide a safe space to express, explore and resolve issues which may be causing you problems in life, both personal and or at work.  I originally trained as an integrative counsellor, focusing on Humanistic ways of working including, Person Centred, Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Gestalt, Psychodynamic and Systemic ways of working.

I have since trained in relationship therapy and psychosexual therapy (sex therapy).
Relationship Therapy (couple counselling) enables individuals or couples to work through issues which may be causing difficulties in their relationship or have caused it to end.  Issues can include difficulties in communicating, affairs, controling behaviours, jealousy, step families or work and financial matters. 
Psychosexual Therapy is an approach which provides support for individuals and couples who are experiencing difficulties of a sexual nature, as well as those who would like to improve their sexual relationship. This can include premature or rapid ejaculation, erection difficulties, loss or lack of desire, painful sex or inability to have sexual intercourse.

I have a special interest in addictions or compulsive behaviours which may include drugs, alcohol, internet, gambling, shopping, eating, the excessive use of pornography or out of control sexual behaviours. These sexual behaviours are sometimes referred to as sex addiction.

I believe it is important to find a way to work with my clients that feels comfortable to them and that they can understand. Therefore I may use some or all of the above approaches with you depending on your needs. I will always be respectful and ensure the service is confidential, this will be explained at our first session, and that you remain in control of the process. My style of working will be further explained at our first meeting.

Skype and telephone counselling is also available.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
