I’m Rhi and I am a Clinical Sexologist, which could also be described as a Sex and Relationship therapist. I can work with anything considered a sexual ‘dysfunction’ like low desire, vaginal pain, erectile issues, not being able to orgasm, compulsive sexual behaviour (often described as sex or porn addiction), sexual practices that may cause concern/issues, sexual trauma, sexual shame and sexual health.
When it comes to relationship work it can mean working with any issues surrounding being in relationships such as communication breakdown, recovering from affairs, fertility challenges and mismatched desire. It is important for me to let you know that I welcome all sexualities, gender identities and relationship structures, including consensual non-monogamy.
My practice also includes an opportunity for people to think and talk about their gender identity or sexual orientation so if you are experiencing struggles with these subjects, I may be the right person for you. We don’t even have to talk about sex in sessions around identity.
The therapy model I use is called Pluralism, which is based on the view that no one therapeutic approach can resolve all client presentations, and that different clients are likely to want and benefit from different interventions in therapy. You as the client and I as the therapist will be a team and work together.
Outside of work, I run 2-3 times a week, I read books like they are going out of fashion, have a passion for live theatre and I enjoy open sea swimming.
