My Approach to Sex and Relationship Counselling

There are a lot of sex counsellors out there and picking the right one for you is an important part of the process.

If you want someone honest, transparent and open-minded yet professional and a IMG_0510specialist in the field, then I might be the counsellor for you.

If you would prefer a counsellor who will consistently sit quietly for hours while you recline on a chaise longue and stare at the ceiling, then we might not be the best match. It’s difficult to get my personality across in a website, so I offer a free 10 minute phone call to help your decision making process.

You can get in touch, through email or phone and we can book it into the diary, or if you’d prefer we can find a time over text message. My number is 07903 681853 and email is sexualhealinguk@hotmail.com

My goal

My goal is to help you understand what’s going on and facilitate you making the changes you want to make. To achieve that I work integratively using different counselling techniques and theories. Some sessions will be faster paced and coaching focused, others more thought provoking. This will depend on who you are, what you respond well to and how far along we are in the therapeutic process.

My strengths as a practitioner are working holistically with any presenting sexual dysfunction (seen here), but also couples who have lost their ‘mojo’ in their relationship and need to be revitalised. I work with clients who are in same or mixed sex relationships or who might not be in relationships at all. I’m a member of London Sex and Relationships Therapy  – a GSD (Gender and Sexual Diversity) friendly group practice.

My experience in sexual health

This includes working in sexual health for a number of years, in both the NHS and charities. This has included Chelsea and Westminster Trust; The Havens, Paddington; Living WellTerence Higgins Trust, Breast Cancer Care and Dimbleby Cancer Care.

Accreditation, Privacy and Monitoring

Whilst working with clients I follow the guidelines of COSRT, the College of Sex and Relationship Therapy. I am an accredited member and am governed by their code of ethics and complaints procedure – which includes strict guidelines about data protection, confidentiality and supervision. I hope this sets your mind at rest that this is a professional service operating within strict industry guidelines. Please see their website for more details.
