Hello and thank you for visiting my page. My name is Skye, and I am a highly qualified integrative counsellor, psychotherapist and psychosexual therapist.
Coming to counselling can be a daunting idea at first. Whether you have been in therapy before or this is your first time, we would use our first session together to decide if and how we would like to work together. I will explain how counselling works should you wish, and answer any questions that you may have. Within the first session we would discuss what has brought you to therapy now, what you would like to achieve and what you may need from me as your therapist.
As my client, I would offer you a confidential, empathetic and professional space in which we would work together towards your counselling goal. Being 'Integrative' means I have no set way of working but use my knowledge, training and skills to create a bespoke way of working with each client. I work in a relational way, in order to create a safe and comfortable space for you to explore and work through the challenges you are facing.
I have a broad range of experience working with clients who have come to therapy for varying reasons. This may have been a previous or recent trauma, relationship or sexual issues, mental health issues, stress/anxiety or issues at work.
Examples of areas I regularly work with are:
-Low self confidence/ self esteem
Additionally, I am a psychosexual therapist with a broad range of experience with sexual issues. Sexual issues are extremely common but you may be struggling to discuss them due to distress, feeling embarrassed or ashamed. This may be affecting your relationship with others, you self confidence or other areas of your life. Counselling and psychotherapy gives you the place to talk without fear of judgement or shame. I work in an integrative way, ensuring an understanding and exploration of the physical dysfunction, psychological and emotional aspects of the sexual issue you may be facing.
Examples of sexual issues I regularly work with are:
-Issues with desire and loss of arousal
- Erectile or ejaculation issues
- Penetration difficulties
- Dyspareunia (Pain during sexual intercourse)
- Sexual abuse or assault
- Questioning sexuality
-Sexual addiction and compulsions
-Sex aversion or phobias
-Fears around sexual experience/ Education
I work with individuals and couples of all sexual orientations, gender identities and sexualities.
Be the first tofor Skye Kennedy-Cullen.
