Couple’s Therapy

Many relationships go through difficulties and this can be one of the most common causes of unhappiness. Couple’s therapy can help you understand each other and reconnect.

You may find that your relationship is lacking something that it once had, or you are struggling to communicate with your partner and arguments are becoming more frequent. Often arguments happen due to differing views on things such as money , kids , housework responsibilities and sex.

Stress at work can also impact at home if not dealt with. Keeping things from your partner rarely works, causing even more anxiety and pain – often the very thing you wanted to protect them from in the first place by keeping things to yourself.

Perhaps there is a loss of sexual desire and intimacy, or you may feel betrayed due to an affair or guilt from having one yourself.

Problems can also occur through long term illness or disability. Having the space to talk through these difficulties can help you in meeting each other’s needs.

There are a number of reasons that people enter into couple’s therapy. Together we can explore some of these difficulties in a safe environment, to help you to bring about change and develop the relationship you deserve.

Sex Therapy

Issues relating to sex can be difficult to talk about, but they are more common than you may think. Talking through your issues in psychosexual therapy – or simply sex therapy – can help you resolve them.

The origins of sexual difficulties can be due to anxiety, depression or other mental health problems. They can also be caused by emotional difficulties such as unhappiness, unresolved grief, problems in a relationship or due to certain situations or circumstances.

Sometimes sexual difficulties result from illness, accidents, surgery, medications or disability. Whatever the cause (and there could be a combination of factors), talking these issues through with a psychosexual therapist can help you to get back on track.

I think what often stops us seeking help, is that sex is an area that in general we find ourselves getting embarrassed about. We may have received messages such as ‘it’s not macho to talk about such things’, ‘good girls don’t…’, ‘it should come naturally’, etc. We are all individuals, all unique and all deserve a full ,consensual, satisfying sex life whether that be alone or with others.

Sex therapy is available to individuals and couples irrespective of sexual orientation.

It involves talking therapy, psychological and practical techniques to help you move through the difficulties. It may involve some sex education , communication skills and tasks given to undertake at home. At no point will you be asked to remove clothing or engage in any sexual activity in the therapy room.

Individual Therapy

Most of us experience difficulties at some point in our lives and may need help to resolve them. Individual counselling can help you gain a better understanding of yourself and stop repeating patterns of the past.

I offer an environment that is supportive, warm, confidential and free from judgement. I create a space in which you will be able to explore areas of your life to understand what’s troubling you, discover where your beliefs have come from, gain more control and a better understanding of yourself.

Whether the difficulties are current or unresolved from the past, together we will work to make your life better. I work in an integrative way, which means I draw on a number of theories to help you make sense of things.

You may be looking for something short term such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) . This differs from other therapies in that it focuses on what you are experiencing at the present time. It’s emphasis is on how a problem is perceived or how a situation causes negative emotions. If you like structure and you’re problem focussed and practical, CBT could be for you.

Individuals can also seek relationship counselling without a partner. This may be due to coping with a break up or being undecided about continuing a relationship. I also see people who wish to improve on their relationships with particular family members.

If you are facing isolation due to your partner or family members’ behaviour, you do not need to suffer in silence. I can help you explore the impact of offences on a family. Please feel free to call me today to discuss how I can help you through. You may also benefit from a support group.
