I currently have two spaces in my schedule for new clients. If you are interested in working with me please book a 30 minute introductory conversation with me here. I am most interested in working with clients on issues related to relationships, sex work, sexuality and non-monogamy that are interested in weekly meetings.
I have enjoyed facilitating a peer DBT skills group, and I expect to run a future group online. Fee’s for the group would be between £5 and £15 depending on income and the group would include up to 6 participants. While DBT is usually used with clients who have a borderline personality disorder diagnosis, in my experience they are helpful skills for most people that struggle to manage their emotions and to behave in line with their values. These sessions would focus on mindfulness, emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness and distress tolerance. You can find out more about DBT here and if you’re interested in participating in a peer DBT skills group you can fill in this form. Once I have sufficient participants I will make contact to arrange a 121 conversation about participating.
If you are working through issues related to non-monogamy you might enjoy a course of online workshops that I am running with another psychotherapist on key issues in polyamory. We will have conversations centered around topics of values in polyamory, creating your own user manual, having constructive conflict, jealousy, new relationship energy and scheduling. While we do not have a specific week on couples privilege or other forms of privilege in relationships (financial, gender, race. etc) these issues will come up in most of our conversations. Our first course, starting November 2018, is a pilot and will be free of charge, subsequent courses will cost £100. You can get more information at www.talkingpoly.co.uk.
I’m passionate about helping people to create the life and relationships they want. This includes, but is not limited to, working out desires, needs and boundaries in relationships, working through values, building emotional continence, rebuilding and repairing trust, opening up or closing relationships. I offer coaching and counselling to adults, as individuals, couples, thrupples, and groups. I am most interested in working with clients around relationships, boundaries and self-consent.
You’re welcome to use this website in lots of ways. You can simply use it to find my contact details to join my waiting list. I have a page which contains lots of resources that you might like to check out, and I’ve written about topics like creating a user guide, relationshipqueeness, cheap dates, breakup plans, self-consent and depression in my blog. Feel free to take a peek.
I only work with adults, so if you are a teenager looking for advice on sex and relationship I’d suggest you start with the Scarleteen blog or getting in touch with a helpline specifically focused on working with teens, such as Teen Helpline. If you are a teenager looking for support with LGBT issues, in the UK you can contact The LGBT+ Helpline, and in Ireland you can contact BeLongTo.
