So what is sex & relationship therapy?
It is quite normal for individuals and couples to go through stages in their life when they notice a change and things don’t feel quite like they used to. But this can become distressing and frustrating when it persists and interferes with relationships and sexual satisfaction. I offer sex-positive education, guidance and counselling to help people meet their sexual goals and understand themselves sexually. Sex is approached in a non-judgemental and positive way. I help couples understand their patterns of behaviour, communicate more effectively, and reconnect intimately on all levels.
In the initial consultation, I will conduct a thorough verbal assessment. The assessment questions will depend on your concerns, and may focus on topics such as physical, mental and sexual health, upbringing and childhood, your current and past relationships or previous mental health concerns. Each talking therapy consultation last for 50 minutes.
