As a Sex Addiction Therapist, I work with individuals and or with partners . I am a qualified Relationship Therapist and Psychosexual Therapist and at times, within each unique situation, find this may provide additional support for the individual. I have qualified colleagues who with informed consent/ permission, I may signpost for additional partner support; in order that therapy remains contained but also beneficial for the client(s)/relationship. And I am able to signpost where the need arises, group work and aftercare support.
I work collaboratively with supervisees through focusing and learning through work and being responsive throughout to the supervisee’s needs. Supervision is a place where it’s good to discuss what troubles us, explore mistakes, disclose personal issues and explore general practice and theoretical issues. A sense of freedom comes when learning and exploring, to find ways back to trusting ourselves through shared understandings of what is helpful.
I qualified as a counsellor and psychotherapist and went on to specialise in sex addiction therapy. In that time I trained as a relational therapist (couples work) and a psychosexual therapist (sex therapy). In my practice I work across all these areas and supervise work across them as well as out of control sexual behaviours and the impact on partners of sex addicts.
