Relationship Counselling Fareham

I am a fully qualified and registered couples counsellor, psychotherapist and psychosexual therapist. I offer couples therapy, counselling, psychosexual therapy and sex therapy. 

 

I aim to provide a safe environment and practical solutions for exploring and addressing sensitive sexual and psychological problems for individuals and couples. As an integrative therapist I draw on several psychological models of therapy including psychodynamic, person-centred and cognitive behavioural approaches. 

 

 

Specialisation

I am an experienced Psychotherapist, specialising in the treatment of sexual and relationship issues using a range of approaches to meet the individual or couple's needs. 

 

I help both men and woman individually, as well as couples with many different types of issues, including erectile dysfunction, pain during intercourse, loss of libido (sexual desire), sexual addictions including Internet pornography addictions and the impact of serious illnesses including cancer, strokes and cardiovascular issues on sexual function and relationships.

 

 

Communication issues

Many sexual or relationship problems have their root in poor communication between partners. Couples can go a whole lifetime with one person feeling in a state of rejection and the other misunderstood.

 

There are a number of types of behaviour which can result in a breakdown of communication between partners resulting in problems, for example ignoring unmet needs, comparison, mind-reading, secrets and deceit. 

 

My therapeutic work explores the undiscovered, unseen and unexplored areas of your relationship and helping to improve communication between couples. I work with you to improve the quality of communication thereby rebalancing your sexual relationship.

 

 

Assessment session

The sessions are strictly confidential. You can contact me for an initial assessment consultation where we can get to know each other and where mutual suitability can be established. You can tell me a little more about the issue(s) you’d like to work and we can talk about the frequency and number of sessions you might need. Any other queries you might have can also be addressed at this consultation.

 

 

About me

I have worked in the NHS and privately for more than 20 Years and I am accredited by the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

√ I recommend this counsellor


I felt that we were in the safest possible hands

“We had been reluctant to seek help - and Simon was pretty much our first experience of therapy. From the moment we met, I felt that we were in the safest possible hands.

Simon had a wonderfully avuncular manner, is extremely kind, and is generous with his guidance. We dealt with highly sensitive and at times acutely painful issues but somehow Simon's skills enables us to leave his room lighter than when we arrived.”
