Sex and Relationship Therapy in Leeds

When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at often change

Hello, welcome to my website. I am an experienced, qualified Psychosexual (Sex) and Relationship Therapist/Couples Counsellor working in North Leeds and online. I offer sex therapy and couples counselling to people from all walks of life and with a variety of sex and relationship related difficulties.

You may have always struggled with certain aspects of sex, or a sexual difficulty could have developed over time.

Whatever your situation, problems with sex and intimacy can be very distressing. If you're currently single, you may find you lack the confidence to start a new relationship while couples can find themselves either avoiding sex or experiencing tension and upset when sex hasn’t gone to plan.

Lack of time, stress, infidelity, illness and communication difficulties are just some of the factors that can impact on sex and intimacy. Having the time and space to think about and talk through your thoughts and feelings with a skilled sex therapist or couples counsellor can bring a sense of relief and lead to new ways of looking at and tackling the problem.

Whether face to face or online, Sex and Relationship Therapy can equip you with useful tools and techniques allowing you to build skills and confidence and learn new ways to connect sexually and emotionally with your partner, creating a happier, more fulfilling sex life.

Many people find it difficult to talk about intimate, sexual issues, even with their partner, so it can be daunting to think about confiding in a stranger. In fact, most people find a great sense of relief once they start talking about their concerns in a supportive, confidential, non-judgmental environment. I am aware that clients are often apprehensive at first and I aim to offer a calm, safe space for you to work towards your goals. I believe that, with the right support and commitment from an experienced Sex Therapist or Couples Counsellor, most difficulties can be either improved or resolved.

I am Relate and NHS trained and have worked as a Psychosexual Therapist in the NHS. I am also a qualified Relationship Therapist and Coach and Mentor and have many years of experience in helping people to reach their goals of improving their physical and emotional wellbeing.

I work with adults aged 18+, from all sexual orientations and ethnicities.

Sex therapy issues I have worked with include:

  • Male issues - erectile dysfunction, premature and delayed ejaculation, arousal difficulties and loss of libido (sex drive)

  • Female issues - vaginismus, dyspareunia (sexual pain), arousal and orgasm difficulties, loss of libido, menopause related concerns

  • Couples issues - differing sex drives and arousal triggers, conflict over porn use, lack of sexual knowledge, communication difficulties, adapting sexually to illness and disability

  • In addition - body image issues, sexual anxiety and phobia, confusion about sexuality, lack of confidence about sex and relationships

  • Relationship Therapy issues include: difficulties with communication and intimacy, conflict over specific areas (e.g. finances, socialising, housework, children), stress, anxiety and depression, physical and emotional difficulties, lack of confidence and infidelity.
    Couples counselling and individual therapy are available depending on your requirements.
