Counselling | Relationship and sex therapy

“Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, just remember how far you have come. Remember everything you have faced, all the battles you have won, and all the fears you have overcome.” - Unknown

What do you need?

Whatever you need from me – counselling, longer-term psychotherapy or psychosexual (sex) therapy – we’ll explore your difficulties together, in total confidence.

As well as listening to you without judgement, I’ll work with you to understand your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and support you in changing them if you want to. If you’re experiencing relationship or sexual difficulties, I’ll guide you in resolving these issues. There are also exercises and other resources that can help.

I’m a fully qualified, experienced counsellor and psychotherapist. I’m also a psychosexual (sex) therapist. As well as working in private practice in the Redhill / Reigate area, I work for Relate as a relationship and psychosexual therapist.

Psychosexual therapy

Psychosexual therapy is beneficial when there’s a psychological or emotional reason for a sexual issue rather than, or perhaps as well as, a physical or medical reason.

Whether you’re single or in a relationship, monogamous or polyamorous, whatever your gender or sexual identity, psychosexual therapy can help you with most sexual issues, including:

Erectile disorders

Exploring BDSM and kink

Gender dysphoria and transition

Inability to orgasm (anorgasmia)

Inability to have penetrative sex (vaginismus)

Intimacy

Lack of desire or arousal

Painful sex (dyspareunia)

Rapid or delayed ejaculation

Retarded (inhibited) ejaculation

Sexual orientation
