17 Years Experience

Relationships, like people, can change over time - reshaping, adjusting and sometimes straining as we grow as individuals. Perhaps your relationship is going through a rough patch - you and your partner are arguing and you can’t find that ‘spark’ you once had. Maybe you feel stuck in a relationship that’s not good enough...

17 Years Experience

Relationships, like people, can change over time - reshaping, adjusting and sometimes straining as we grow as individuals.

Perhaps your relationship is going through a rough patch - you and your partner are arguing and you can’t find that ‘spark’ you once had. Maybe you feel stuck in a relationship that’s not good enough to stay but not bad enough to leave? I help individuals and couples to improve their relationships by facilitating change.

I am a Relate trained counsellor and sex therapist with over 16 years’ experience. I specialise in helping those with relationship difficulties, intimacy issues and porn and sex addiction. I provide a secure and non-judgmental space - somewhere that you can feel safe to communicate your feelings and identify problems you are facing.

Couples Counselling
Counselling as a couple gives you both a chance to explore your relationship in a neutral space. Here, you can look at the present situation, think about what you’d like to change, and begin to move forward.

Individual Counselling
Sometimes it’s helpful to explore things independently of your partner. There’s nothing wrong with taking a step back and looking at things as an individual. I provide a non-judgmental, practical and positive space to do this.

I work with couples and individuals affected by issues such as:
Abuse, affairs and betrayal, anxiety, arguments, bereavement, commitment, communication difficulties, depression, domestic violence, feelings of loss when children leave home, issues with stepfamilies, loss of identity, low self-esteem, parenting, past relationship issues that are affecting the present one, retirement concerns, separation and divorce, sexual disagreements, sexuality and intimacy problems, cultural differences

Sex and Relationship Therapy
Sexual problems and relationship difficulties are often connected. It is not uncommon for couples to be unhappy with their sexual relationship. I help couples and individuals to explore why these problems have come about and work towards resolving them.

I work with couples and individuals affected by issues such as:
Difficulties reaching orgasm (anorgasmia), delayed/premature ejaculation, difficulties arising from sexual abuse, erectile difficulties, internet addiction, lack of sexual information, loss of desire, pain during intercourse (dyspareunia), vaginismus

Sex Addiction Therapy
Some sexual activity can feel ‘out of control’ to a point where, despite trying to stop, you are unable to do so. Many people struggle to deal with these issues alone, even when they are determined to change their behaviour.

Equally, discovering that your partner’s sexual behaviour is out of control can be devastating and isolating. I can help both parties through this experience.

I work with couples and individuals affected by issues such as:
Compulsive viewing of pornography, chat lines, visiting prostitutes, visiting sex cinemas, exhibitionism, voyeurism, compulsive masturbation, fetishes, anonymous sex, telephone sex, illegal sexual practices

Online Counselling
I offer online counselling as a secure and convenient way of getting the help you need. The service is discreet and can be accessed anywhere that you feel comfortable using a computer, tablet or smartphone. Zoom is a fully encrypted, secure platform for online counselling sessions, so you can be confident that what you say will remain completely private.

"Elaine was a very calming influence throughout our session, she is very clear in how her process works and how she supports the conversation between ourselves. We are looking forward to working with her more."
   
"Elaine made me feel really comfortable and I liked that she spent the first session going through my entire history. She also explained her methods and the process - which I was really appreciative of. I look forward to continuing to work with Elaine"
   
"The therapist was wonderful! I have a problem with the times- i live in the states-it says on the Harley site that the times are New York est...but the therapist went by the time she is at in the UK so that made for a big problem and I only got half of a session instead of all 50 minutes! I would like a refund or at least another session"
