Problems often reflect underlying difficulties from each partner’s experiences in earlier life. Psychotherapy aims to understand what lies behind current difficulties, paying attention both to conscious and unconscious factors, in order to bring about change. Whether you come with your partner or alone, whether you’re gay or heterosexual, married or single; I aim to offer a safe and confidential setting in which to explore your difficulties.
Sexual problems can be longstanding, or related to recent events which have caused stress, confusion or unhappiness. Whichever is the case, I am trained to work with people to help resolve their sexual difficulties.
Sexual Addiction can best be defined as an all consuming and destructive preoccupation with sexual activity. That activity might be masturbation, pornography, going to sex cinemas and shows, visiting prostitutes, sleeping with strangers, having multiple affairs, cyber-sex, pursing a fetish or even sexual offending behaviour. Neither the type of activity, nor the frequency defines an addict, but the relentless preoccupation with pursuing sex in spite of the damaging consequences. Sexual addiction takes time, energy and money. As a result, many addicts find that after a while, their work, health, relationships, family and social lives are being compromised, if not devastated.
Online therapy or Skype is a new convenient alternative to face to face therapy. Skype can be accessed via the computer from home, work or even on holiday anywhere in the world. For some clients it has proven to be a better way of finding the help and support they need when they need it. Some clients are more comfortable and find it easier to talk openly about issues that they might otherwise find difficult in direct face to face contact.
