Hello there and welcome…my name is Joanne and I specialise in Couples Counselling, Psychosexual Therapy and sexual addiction . All relationships have up’s and downs, this is quite normal and we have to re-adjust when life throws up these challenges. If you are experiencing any of the difficulties below though and are finding it hard to resolve, then it may be time to seek experienced support: Do you no longer feel able to talk to your partner? Do your conversations always seem to turn into an argument? Or maybe you are experiencing loss of desire, erectile dysfunction, pain during sex which are causing you a great deal of distress.

Do you feel your relationship is stuck in a rut? That it lacks the spark it once had? Are you having the same argument over and over again? Or maybe your looking for a new relationship. Maybe you feel your sex life is lacking in some way and you have lost that intimate connection you once had. Are you struggling with the limitations Co-vid has placed upon society?

You may be questioning yourself or feeling stuck and counselling will help you recognise potential areas where change may be needed and support you in making positive change at a pace appropriate to your needs. ​ I implement effective psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding among clients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. I have faced my own therapeutic journey and healed from trauma and feel that this has given me more insight than any of my academic training and professional development. Let's work together to help you to secure a happier and more fulfilling life!

Are things getting on top of you, so that your day to day living is a struggle, and your relationships with others are strained? Do you feel like past, or current, events are effecting how you cope with life today? I help people feel more confidence in their relationships by identifying the hurdles that are holding them back. I help people to find peace of mind by managing their anxiety or low mood. I support people through their bereavement to enable them to enjoy life again. Let me help you to make sense of your difficulties, so that you can connect more positively with your loved ones and the world.

I have been working in this field for over twenty years now and I still have a determined passion for it. I am trusted to hear the life narratives and difficulties of those seeking support and my aim is to help you feel heard and empowered. I have never lost sight of this aim. I have worked with people who have felt very isolated by their own thoughts, felt intense shame, and struggled to cope with overwhelming feelings. Usually they have not felt able to talk to those around them for fear of judgment, embarrassment or rejection. I feel privileged to have been trusted by my clients which enables me to help lessen their burden.

Whatever it is that brings you to counselling, I will help you to bring about the change you are wanting to achieve. You may have a personal goal in mind, or you may not know exactly what it is you need from counselling yet. You may be struggling with life at the moment and finding it hard to see a way forward. You may feel lost and not have a good sense of who you are any more. You may have a long term condition that you need help with or you may have had a recent bereavement, separation or other traumatic life event. Maybe things just don't feel right. Whatever it is you need and wherever you need to get to, I am here to help you.

Hi. At times we are challenged in life and we may need help to work through the issues that can affect us. Whatever we are experiencing, it can impact on our whole life greatly. At times admitting we need help can be a long and hard journey. Just getting to this point of looking for a therapist means you’ve addressed so much already and that you wish to take the next step. It's finding the right therapist for you, just like any other relationship is how you connect that enables you to feel safe and be open so you can work through your issues. So take your time to find the right one as that relationship can help you so much.

Sexual Addiction Counsellors
Sexual addictions usually are revealed in stages: Preoccupation: continual fantasies about sexual prospects or situations, which can trigger episodes of sexual "acting-out": Ritualization: a preferred sexual activity or situation is often stereotyped and repetitive; Sexual Compulsion: continual engagement in sexual activity despite negative consequences and desire to stop; Despair: guilt or shame over inability to control behaviour or feel remorse; and, Other behavioural problems, particularly chemical dependency and eating disorders.

Sex addiction or love addiction in marriage is common and inevitably leads to betrayal and hurt. Overcoming and recovery from sexual addiction starts with recognizing that you are out of control.
