I have worked as a sex and relationship therapist in Woking, Epsom, and online for many years. Problems with relationships often stem from communication issues; often feeling misunderstood, not seen, or heard correctly. It is normal for couples to go through a range of transitional changes and these changes even if they are positive changes like having children, moving house etc can often create additional stress and exacerbate different styles of communication. Relationship counselling can help couples express themselves better, understand each other’s intentions, eliminate misunderstandings, accept difference, and create productive conversations where agreements and solutions can be reached.
For some couples they may have good communication, but they may have difficulty with their sex life. These problems are common, and happen for a lot of people, but nonetheless cause a great deal of distress and unhappiness. A good sexual relationship plays a small but significant part of a couple’s relationship, and when that connection isn’t there, the situation can feel magnified and can leave both individual’s feeling low and disconnected. Seeking help isn’t easy, but taking that step is such an important part of reaching a better place in your relationship.
My practice is a completely non-judgmental space for individuals and couples to work through these problems in a way that’s comfortable to them. If you have any questions about my sex therapy in Woking, Epsom, and online, don’t hesitate to get in touch at any time.
Sex & relationship therapy can support people working through various sexual problems, such as:
In couples counselling an assessment would consist of one session as a couple together and two separate individual sessions. From there we would explore your mutual goals and aspirations. I use a range of techniques to help couples communicate and connect.
In sex therapy, there would be an extended assessment to establish whether the cause is psychological, physical, or a combination of the two. Sex therapy is predominantly Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and focuses on your thoughts, feelings and behaviour. Much of our work will be about guiding you through practical exercises which can then be performed in the comfort and privacy of your own home. I know that the idea of sex therapy can be daunting, but the process is a deeply enriching experience. It is one of the most successful therapies and can enhance your relationship on many levels. Not only will you learn more about your sexual needs, and that of your partner, but you will also find better ways to communicate more effectively, which helps your relationship on a broader level.
Along with one-to-one psychotherapy and couples sex therapy in Woking, Epsom, and online, I am also a life coach who supports people with their personal development. View my Personal Development Coach page to learn more.
