I am an Honorary Psychosexual and Relationship Therapist currently in training at The Centre for Psychosexual Health. As part of my training, I am delighted to be undertaking a placement with Controlling Chemsex.
PRT (Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy) is a branch of psychotherapy that deals with all issues regarding sex, sexuality and human relationships.
Some sexual dysfunctions may be due to psychological problems such as anxiety, depression or other mental health problems. Emotional difficulties, such as unresolved grief or unhappiness due to other problems in a relationship, can also have an impact on sexual function. Sometimes symptoms are situational, which means that they only happen under certain circumstances.
Some of the areas covered by PRT include rapid/delayed ejaculation, anorgasmia, erectile dysfunction, painful sex, inhibited desire, general sexual dissatisfaction, sexual trauma or relationship/intimacy issues.
As a PRT practitioner I work with individuals and couples.
Prior to my training at The Centre for Psychosexual Health I qualified as a Psychotherapist with a Masters Degree in Integrative Psychotherapy.
Before I retrained as a Psychotherapist, I worked in the Digital Agency world. I have many years of experience in the corporate ‘rat race’. I’m familiar with, and understand, the pressure and stresses that come with it, in trying to balance our personal and professional lives.
As a gay male I hold a life experience of feeling different and belonging to a minority group and have used this knowledge and my training to volunteer and work for LGBTQ organisations in dealing with a wide range of problems, especially those within the LGBTQ community, around sex, sexuality, identity, relationships, addiction, anxiety, depression, shame and self-esteem.
I am very excited to have joined Controlling Chemsex in supporting people connect with their sexual selves, and in developing healthy fulfilling relationships, so that they can enjoy living again.
