Many people have had an experience of therapy in the past and it has not produced the results they wanted. This in part can be due to the person going to see a therapist who is trained in one specific therapeutic modality (approach), who then tries to make the client fit that one approach. Collaboratively, we will work together to help you feel better, happier, more in control and confident in who you are as a person. As you begin to understand yourself and why you do things more, this will open you up to greater awareness in all parts of your life; home, work and relationships.

I am an Arts Psychotherapist and DDP practitioner with over 14 years experience. When life feels overwhelming or unmanageable therapy can provide a safe space in which feelings and thoughts can be shared confidentially and without judgement. By exploring concerns you have and working with words and creative exercises difficult feelings can be untangled, understood and healing can occur. This can give you the feeling of confidence, strength and freedom, feel more in control and restore a sense of balance in your life.

An additional focus in my practice is working with sexuality , sexual identity and sexual issues which often impact relationships and how people are in the world.
My clients choose to see me to help them address specific issues or to explore their thoughts and feelings in particular moments in their lives. Whatever the reason I offer them a confidential space where they can allow themselves to open up as much as they are comfortable with. Often issues are linked to self-esteem, self-worth and the difficulty to fully accept oneself. Clients are often able to become more confident in themselves and in relationships as they learn how to be more compassionate and kind to themselves. Therapy can help clients become happier, more fulfilled and successful in their life journey.

I am also studying towards a Masters in Psychosexual Therapy and have previously worked at an LGBTQI+ charity working with gender, sexuality and identity and at a rape crisis centre.
I have a down-to-earth approach to therapy, and my natural curiosity leads me to ask questions which help me understand more about you and how you work. I have worked with clients who have experienced abuse, anxiety, bereavement, bullying, cultural issues, depression, discrimination, feeling suicidal, gender and sexuality issues, intercultural adjustment, racism, relationship difficulties (personal or work-related), self-harm, separation/divorce, sexual violence, stress, trauma and workplace bullying. Some issues brought to me by couples are infidelity, communication, low libido and sexual dysfunctions.

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.
