Sex Addiction Treatment Strategies

Joanna Benfield, our Psychosexual Therapist, has a new article published online for 'Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity', The Journal of Treatment and Prevention - which is The Official Journal of the Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health. The article is a study examining the lived experiences of 6 sex addiction therapists who incorporate an attachment-informed approach in their work. The study aims to elaborate key components of an attachment-based approach that could potentially be incorporated into sex addiction treatment strategies for therapists working across different modalities. View the article here. View Joanna's informative website here.

Welcome to Petar Rodic

We are delighted to welcome Petar Rodic onto our professional therapy team. Petar specialises in Addiction Counselling (substance misuse, drugs, alcohol, behaviours) and also works as a Recovery Practitioner for the NHS. He is an Integrative Counsellor focusing on Psychodynamic, Person Centred and Existential-Transpersonal theories, but can draw on many other therapy modalities to suit the needs of his clients. Petar is also passionate about personal development work with clients - exploring the 'inner child' to discover the true self. Another area of focus is Family Constellation work - an approach that goes beyond therapy as it explores life events and traumas in previous family generations that is able to affect the lives of concurrent and future generations, often manifesting as physical illness or disruptive life patterns. Working with and understanding these influences can bring about transformation and healing. Petar speaks English, Russian and Serbo-Croation.

Grieving a son’s suicide

Our Psychotherapist and EMDR Counsellor, Sandra Gladh, was asked by The Counsellors Cafe Magazine to review a new book - "I'll write your name on every beach" - by Susan Auerbach, who tragically lost not only her father, but also her son to suicide. The book covers her personal grieving process and also deals with the difficult questions raised by such an event. Sandra could relate to Susan's struggles, as she meets clients dealing with bereavement through suicide, and other causes, in her therapy work. Sandra was also pleased that Susan wrote about her positive experiences with EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing). Read the book review here.
