All relationships have ups and downs, this is perfectly normal. Learning how to navigate through difficult times can be challenging for some couples. Relationship difficulties generally stem from poor communication, which can lead to arguments, withdrawal  and relationship breakdown. Unresolved conflicts may lead to lingering feelings of resentment, irritation, and anger which further impact on the foundations of the relationship.  Mental health issues including anxiety, depression, insomnia and addiction problems can lead to problems in relationships, equally relationship problems can also lead to mental health problems.

I use a combination of treatments  for relationship problems including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) , mindfulness based cognitive therapy and hypnotherapy. I am a trained family therapist and see individuals, couples and families for relationship problems.

        Psychosexual Problems

Sexual difficulties can affect anyone at any stage of their life and in any stage of a relationship, psychosexual problems can be caused by a variety of things, including anxiety, depression, insomnia, stress, conflict,  and addictions. It can be difficult for many people to talk about intimate sexual problems and probably more so for men than women.  I offer help to couples and individuals and the most common problems include erectile dysfunction, ejaculation problems, loss of desire ……loss of libido, sex addiction, porn addiction and gender identity issues.
