- Unable to achieve orgasm.
- Has the problem been around for a long time or more recently?

Couples might come to therapy when they want to work through a specific issue or there are some niggling concerns, other times it is because there have been infidelities in the relationship, one-offs or on-going relationship betrayals. These times can be emotionally draining and clients may benefit from having a space to understand how things got to this point and whether and how they might be able to move forward.
Whether it is use of pornography, sex workers, one night stands or a feeling that sex is dominating your life, sexual compulsion has become quite common. Therapeutic work in this area considers triggers that cause the person to act out and looks to encourage healthier behaviours to lessen the attraction of sexually acting out.
If you are the partner of someone with sexual compulsion, you may be struggling to understand their behaviour. Self doubt, trust issues and fear of sexually transmitted infections are all possible reactions; I can support you through these concerns.
One in four people will suffer from a mental health concern at some time in their life and most common conditions are anxiety and/or depression. Interventions follow a cognitive behavioural approach, where behaviours and unhelpful ways of thinking are challenged and replaced by more progressive ones.
Also known as systemic therapy, family therapy is for issues that effect more than one person in a family. It may be a “traditional” family or step family or mixed family. Family therapy is particularly helpful when young people are described as having difficulties and the therapy looks at different ways of the family working together.
Whether it is for a personal relationship or a business relationship, as a means to avoid costly legal fees, mediation can be a solution to finding a suitable way forward for both parties.
