Simon Halford | Counselling and Psychosexual Therapy
Counselling and Psychotherapy Fareham
I am a fully qualified and registered psychotherapist and psychosexual therapist. I offer counselling, psychotherapy and psychosexual therapy in Fareham, close to Portsmouth and Southampton.
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.
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.
The issues I treat include depression, communication issues, erectile dysfunction, pain during intercourse, loss of libido (sexual desire), sexual addictions including Internet pornography addictions, relationship difficulties and the impact of serious illnesses including cancer, strokes and cardiovascular issues on sexual function and relationships.
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.
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).
