Linda is able to tailor relationship counselling to suit your particular needs, drawing upon evidence-based strategies such as mindfulness, schema therapy, narrative therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and motivational interviewing.

Relationship Counselling and Sex Therapy

After extensive training and many years of clinical practice in relationship counselling, Linda realised that the whole area of sexual issues was unaddressed/underlying with many couples, so she undertook further training in sex therapy. Combining the two areas of expertise and offering couples and individuals the benefits of both couple and sex therapies, is an holistic approach which helps to minimise the amount of time that individuals/couples spend in therapy.

Sex therapy helps individuals or couples to improve relationship intimacy through discussion of sexual problems, relationship issues, expectations and provide information on sexual functioning, low desire and enhancing mutual satisfaction in sexual relationships. Sex therapy in the context of relationship counselling may begin with constructing a detailed sexual and/or relationship history examining the origins and the patterns of the current situation.
