Couples and psychosexual therapy
Psychosexual and relationship therapy- How I work
I work with individuals and couples using an integrative approach. Put simply, this means I use a variety of styles adapted to what suits your needs best. I take an active part in what's going on by listening and giving feedback. The problematic dynamic often recreates itself within the counselling room, which provides the opportunity for insight and direct work. When this happens my job is to keep communication channels open and equal and to encourage responsibility and expand awareness. I hope to empower people to be self reflective, honest and able to talk about what's problematic for them individually and in relationship.
During the initial sessions, we work together to gain a clear idea of what you want to achieve and goals so as to keep the work focused. All I ask is that you're willing to work and to grow. We often agree 'homework' so that the process is continued and expanded upon outside of sessions, but this would obviously be your decision.
I have particular interest in improving communication in couples and in deepening intimacy and understanding. I also work with sexual compulsivity and internet related problems. I have lots of experience in overcoming the impact of sexual assault and trauma. I also work with erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation and loss of interest in sex.
