Is ideal for people who have small children or struggle with child care, where they can meet with the counsellor once the children are asleep. It can also work well for couples who are in a long-distance relationship, perhaps living in separate cities or even in different time zones; these meetings would be a three-way conference-type call.
It could be ideal for those who do not live close to the right kind of counsellor, it is a very simple solution to go online and have therapy with a live video link to a specialist couples counsellor. She can support and assist the couple overcome their specific difficulties.
Additionally, it can also be very beneficial for people who are not able to leave home for any reason and is as effective as working in person with a counsellor.
The cost is the same as per in-person counselling, the only difference is that it has to be prepaid. However, it has the advantage of being more flexible in terms of time availability.
Online therapy does require a good quality internet connection and a private space where you will not be overheard or interrupted.
For online counselling I use Zoom.us, it provides a good level of privacy and security, and it is simple and easy to install. Once the appointment has been booked and paid for, you will receive an email invitation with a link to the meeting. The whole process is simple and straightforward
The Journey into Your Future. Are you ready?
I am a fully qualified Couples Therapist, and Sex Therapist, or Psychosexual Therapist, working online. I have been working with individuals and couples for over 30 years.
When people come to me for relationship therapy and sex therapy, they are often in crisis. I work with each individual and couple to develop strategies for overcoming the issues that have become the legacy of past traumas. I work with people who are experiencing trouble connecting as a couple both emotionally and sexually. For some this could mean rediscovering a love for each other and reawakening desire, for others it can mean healing and finding a mutual path after infidelity.
I work with a range of issues and approach each with a completely non-judgmental attitude and a compassionate approach. I invite each client to feel secure and safe enough to discuss very personal and painful subjects.
I am also interested in the area of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and its impact on couples' relationships and I have worked extensively with survivors of childhood sexual abuse.
My experience as a therapist and of working with individuals and couples has taught me that every human being is capable of extraordinary things, each individual is capable of reaching inside to find that place from where our most noble deeds and thoughts arise. I believe that change is always possible and that counselling can enable people to shape their future in the way that they want to
Sex therapy is a form of counselling for couples and individuals that incorporates both talking with the counsellor and exercises done privately by yourselves at home. A sex therapist is someone who has been trained specifically in a variety of sexual dysfunctions and who has learned many techniques to help you cure the dysfunction.
Many dysfunctions originate in the mind and emotions – in other words they are psychologically driven. Many issues can be healed by direct and honest conversations that enable you to feel safe and relaxed even when talking about deeply intimate things. Some dysfunctions are physiological or simply mechanical, but nonetheless can cause a great deal of distress, and having counselling alongside any medical assistance you may be receiving can ease much of the emotional difficulties you may be experiencing.
I also offer phone counselling.
Essentially Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) involves using bi-lateral stimulation to help the brain process distressing experiences. It is not a traditional type of psychotherapy. However, it is growing in popularity and is used most often in the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD can occur after one-off incidents such as a physical assault, rape, a car accident, or ongoing trauma such as military combat, domestic violence, or childhood sexual abuse. EMDR is used to help people recover from the distressing symptoms experienced in PTSD such as flashbacks, intrusive thoughts or images, depression, anxiety, and even angry outbursts.
In traditional therapy, it was assumed that deep emotional pain can take many years to heal. Whereas various studies in which EMDR was used, have demonstrated that the mind can in fact heal from emotional or mental trauma, at a similar rate as the body can recover from physical trauma. For example, in physical injuries such as a cut or a break, the body quickly reacts to repair itself, if this is prevented or blocked in some way the wound never heals completely, but once the impediment is removed then the body's own healing processes take over and full recovery is possible. Similarly, when the mind is traumatised, a block can develop often resulting in PTSD as explained above. EMDR removes this block and the mind then heals naturally and spontaneously as it is designed to do.
Supervision is offered to counsellors working with individuals or couples, sex therapists either qualified or in training. My main modality is psychodynamic, but I also work behaviourally and with mentalisation. I have 30 years of experience in the field of counselling, psychotherapy, and personal growth.
I believe supervision is vital to the integrity and safety of our work as counsellors and therapists. It is also a form of self-care essential, to avoid burnout or compassion fatigue. As a supervisor, I offer you a safe space for you to process your feelings or issues arising from the work. In addition, I also offer support and mentoring to help you set up if you are just starting out, or to promote your practice and develop your skills
