As a Sex, Relationship and Intimacy Coach/Therapist, I specialize in helping individuals and couples. My clients love their partners and are committed to nurturing their connections. Recognizing the need for assistance can be intimidating, and I support those who take that brave step. My mission is to prevent the unnecessary end or prolonged unhappiness in committed relationships and instead reset and reinvent them. I promote a positive and healthy attitude toward sexuality, fostering understanding without judgment, upholding ethical practices, respecting diversity, and using evidence-based methods.

As a Professor of psychology with academic expertise on men, masculinities, sex and relationships, I provide bespoke therapy for men’s needs. Men prefer a less emotional, no-nonsense approach to counselling. My approach is thus problem-centered, solution-focused, with practical application and flexible session lengths. My expertise is to help men with relationship problems, particularly concerning related issues of sex, sexuality, erectile problems, cheating, sexually opening up relationships and multiple issues related to men, adolescents, and masculinities.

Welcome, I am Hannah Elliott. I specialise in sexual wellbeing for women by exploring the challenges faced through womanhood and sexuality.  I see these challenges as a rite of passage and a series of initiations, often presenting themselves through our menstruality, sexuality and sensuality, and ultimately leading us on a path where we have no choice but to slow down and listen to the body. These challenges might show up as pelvic pain, pain on penetration, anxiety around intimacy and communication. I work closely to support women through pregnancy loss, both pre/ post termination and miscarriage.

You may also feel overwhelmed by intrusive thoughts or unable to cope, questioning your sexuality or struggling in relationships.
We all go through life experiencing good and bad moments, but sometimes the bad experiences can become too overwhelming to manage them on our own. Sometimes they may be a result of sudden changes which life throws at us unexpectedly leaving us vulnerable and lost in a new reality and sometimes it may be that we want to change something in our lives, but don’t really know how, which leaves us feeling stuck and helpless. If this sounds familiar to how you feel why not try counselling? Talking to someone you can trust who can listen without any judgement can be very helpful especially in these challenging times.

Sex Therapy Counsellors

Who is sex therapy for?

Sex problems are common in relationships. Many people want a better sex life and want to feel loved and desired by their partner. It is difficult for couples to resolve sexual problems on their own because people often feel ashamed to talk about their sexual desires fearing they are not normal, when in fact a very broad range of preferences and behaviors are normal. A sex therapist can help clarify this and other matters.

Why do people need sex therapy?

Many people do not know how to talk about their erotic needs or their emotional needs, both of which are addressed in sex therapy. Couples often live with sexual difficulties for years before seeking help, and in that time, partners may experience so much disappointment and alienation that they may fear their problems mean they are incompatible. Once people experience disappointment, it is difficult to find resolution without help.

What happens in sex therapy?

People have many misconceptions about what takes place in sex therapy. First, it is a form of talk therapy in which partners discuss their sexual concerns; it does not involve touching or physical exploration of any kind. Sex therapy typically helps couples get comfortable talking to each other about sex so that, in the privacy of their home life, they can openly discuss their sexual desires and make decisions about what they want to do. Couples are typically assigned activities to do at home that build intimacy skills.

What kinds of problems do sex therapists treat?

Very often, partners differ in their degree of sexual desire and struggle over how often to have sex. Or they may have fights about porn use or have difficulty connecting sexually after one partner is unfaithful. Men may have problems with premature ejaculation. Women may find themselves struggling to become aroused or to achieve an orgasm. Sometimes partners feel like they have lost the sense of attraction to their partner. These are all common issues dealt with in sex therapy.
