My aim within counselling sessions is to help you understand yourself and assist you to work through some of the personal and complex problems you face. Problems that you cannot always resolve through discussion with your partner, friends or family. My style of counselling incorporates CBT, Systemic and Psychodynamic theories.
Within my couple/individual counselling sessions, I work with individuals or couples to explore relationship issues including; communication problems, past relationship difficulties affecting the present; trust and jealousy issues; parenting problems; work difficulties; grief; childhood sexual abuse; loss and affairs.
As a Psychosexual Therapist I look at sexual and intimacy issues with couples or individuals; and I explore how the individuals sexual dysfunction has become a problem for them. I then put together a structured intervention that includes tasks to complete at home and that will help them to overcome the dysfunction.
I also offer a structured program of therapy to treat porn and sex addiction.
I am also very experienced in counselling people with substance misuse problems including drugs and alcohol. This can include Behavioural Couples Therapy(BCT) a high intensity intervention. BCT has a very good evidence base for treating people with drug and alcohol problems. To engage in the therapy you should be prepared to be working towards abstinence from illicit drugs or alcohol abuse during the first couple of weeks of therapy or be illicit drug or alcohol free on commencement of the therapy.
