Couples Therapy & Individual Psychosexual Counselling
We all experience difficulties individually and in a couple relationship. We offer a confidential environment to talk about your own relationship with intimacy; together as a couple. Couples are often disillusioned by their relationships and connection needs to be re-established. Couples coming to therapy are feeling frustrated, communication is difficult and intimacy has become awkward or non existent.
We offer an approach that is able to open up dialogue where you can talk openly about the relationship, and challenge long term behaviours that are stopping the relationship from growing. The first meeting is an opportunity to discuss openly your concerns. I am aware this can be difficult. I will help you overcome this with support and encouragement.
You will have the opportunity to explore your own sexuality, sexual timeline and new ways to think about your sexual template. We look at singledom positively as well as exploring your possibilities for future relationships. Issues with sexual dysfunction can be discussed as they can have a significant impact on your self-esteem, confidence and relationship.
