Welcome to my ‘Home’. You have arrived here because you are looking for someone who can help you resolve either a relationship or sexual issue, and am wondering if I could be that person.

Selecting ‘Relationship Counselling’ or ‘Psychosexual Therapy’ will explain the common issues people seek help for, but what exactly is counselling and what is therapy?

Relationship Counselling:

An interactive learning process contracted between an individual or couple - and me.

The issues you bring could be social, cultural, economic or emotional and I will approach with empathy in an holistic, non judgemental way, giving you my time, attention and respect. Our time together will give you the opportunity to address and resolve specific problems, make decisions and cope with a crisis whilst developing personal awareness. It may involve working with thoughts and feelings and considering the source of these.

Psychosexual Therapy:

Gathering of personal information leading to a personal treatment plan.

It's still conducted in a non judgemental, emphatic manner, but could be considered more directive than counselling. The work is done in a collaborative way and involves more of a time commitment as you will asked to do ‘homework’, and then discuss the outcome of the assigned tasks; what did you like, dislike, not do and why. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is used.

You are the expert in your life, but recognise that anothers perspective could help.Relationship Counselling in Basingstoke

Relationship Counselling

Most people find themselves in the distressing position of having relationship issues at some point in their lives.

Everyone’s relationship is unique, but there are often similarities when it comes to problems. We are often able to cope with differing viewpoints and feelings to our partner or family members, but at times, especially when we are stressed, or there has been a change in circumstances, we can't cope. Communication breaks down, and we lose the ability to resolve the problems.

You don’t have to wait until you are at crisis point before trying to resolve things. Some people choose to do a ‘Relationship health check’ before making a firm commitment.

Previous clients have told me that working with me in a safe, non judgemental, emphatic environment has helped them resolve or come to terms with their situation.

I won’t tell you what to do. I will help you work it out for yourself so you feel better equipped to solve any future problems.

Jane Cottle - Relationship Therapist

My interest in Relationship Therapy grew out of personal experience, and I decided to make a career out of this in 2001 when I obtained a Certificate in Counselling.

I began working for Relate in April 2003 and completed their specialised training programme in May 2006, obtaining the Relate Certificate in Couple Counselling, Theory and Practice. I’ve been trained to help you understand yourself more, improve relations with others,work out things for yourself and make decisions about what to do next.

I have since qualified as a Psychosexual Therapist; Post Grad Diploma in Psychosexual Therapy (PG.Dip, Relate Institute). I will assess your problem with you and if therapy is agreed, put together a treatment plan for you to do privately in your own home.

I have spent 1000’s of counselling and therapy hours with individual clients and couples, and continue to work for Relate.

I am fully insured, a member of the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT) and adhere to all practice codes and ethics.

My work is supervised, undertaken with appropriate confidentiality, and I keep up to date in my field with continual professional development.I welcome clients from all cultural backgrounds.

Psychosexual Therapy

Sex Therapy can help you if you're experiencing difficulties in your love life. Sex is a very personal thing. Talking about it can be embarrassing, but talking is often the best thing you can do to improve your sex life.

All couples go through phases where they don’t have the time or energy for regular sex. It’s natural to want better sex and sometimes there are specific psychological or medical reasons for your difficulties.

If there is a medical problem, it would be dealt with by your G.P. For many people, however, their problem is being maintained by their thoughts and feelings about sex and sexuality. This is what I would help you with, hence the term ‘Psychosexual Therapy’ .

Sex therapy can help you with:-

• Different sex drives
• Orgasm and arousal issues
• Erection problems- can’t get one or can’t be maintained.
• Rapid or delayed ejaculation
• Painful sex
• Navigating the menopause
• Sexual boredom

 

You will never be asked to do anything sexual in my presence. After a detailed history take, and a personal treatment plan is put together, you will do all the work in your own home. The work is collaborative and your agreement to the proposed process is always sought
