Relate Trained Couples Therapist Leeds, and Psychosexual Therapy Bradford
Hello, and a warm welcome to my website.
I am a very experienced Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor who specialises in Anxiety, Depression, Sexual Issues, Addictions, Relationship problems and work related stress.
I am a highly qualified practioner offering Psychosexual Therapy in the Bradford area, Couples Therapy in Leeds and Psychotherapy and Counselling in Horsforth. I offer Relationship and Psychosexual Therapy working with Individuals and Couples.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
Life success indicators show increased relational satisfaction as key to personal happiness and good therapy can improve this. I have worked as a counsellor and psychotherapist for 19 years having originally trained with 'Relate'. Arguments, cyclical behaviour, and affairs can cause depression, anxiety and stress at home, which in turn offers no respite.
Often clients experience repeated patterns of couple or relational dynamics that impact negatively throughout their lives and recognise that these need to change in order to offer a better quality of life. Or you may be encountering feelings of confusion in your relationship which would benefit from understanding yourself or your situation better. Therapy will help to work things out and arrive at a path that is the best one for you.
You may be in crisis, or perhaps a culmination of patterns is causing you anxiety or stress. You are invited to explore a preferred or different outcome in a warm, professional, and empathic opportunity to be heard, and more importantly, understood.
Communication between loved ones can stall, seize up or become strained through awkwardness or the reluctance to challenge or hurt their loved ones, and a skilled therapist can facilitate conversations towards solutions.
Put simply I can help you to explore your difficulties, and this understanding can offer a platform for change. You are welcome to attend as an individual, as a couple, or as a family to gain happiness and satisfaction out of confusion.
Change happens in many ways. Sometimes it’s subtle, sometimes over time, through talking therapies such as counselling or psychotherapy, or changing of behaviours. It need not be worrying, however, as all therapy I offer is tailored to your needs and presentation. I offer short-term and long-term work that can be decided through collaboration. I have also worked with culturally and sexually diverse clients from the LGBTQ communities in Couples Therapy, Psychosexual Therapy and Family Counselling.
The sensitive subject of sex can be particularly tricky to navigate and as a result we avoid it at all costs, and time does a splendid job of compounding the problem! Sexual communication in itself can improve intimacy, but it may be that you would benefit from sessions to address specific issues.
See my 'Services Offered' page for an overview of what I can help with.
