I am able to offer short or long term therapy to individuals or couples over 18. The first appointment is an assessment appointment so that I can find out what you are seeking from therapy and for you to take this opportunity to discuss your issues and see if the therapy I offer is for you This will be an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have about therapy and your difficulties. After the first initial appointment you can have time to decide if you would like to go ahead with therapy.
Regular reviews throughout the sessions to reflect on the work and the process. I work from a systemic framework, a psychodynamic profile (past) and incorporating a CBT element to achieve effective communication skills. I am comfortable working with all aspects of sexuality and sex related issues. This work is challenging for client and I aim to help the process of finding the cause with the client so that a more satisfied sexual experience is created, whatever that might be for you.
Intensive Therapy Programme
Intensive therapy is offered to give the couple the opportunity to explore issues without limits on time. These are popular as intensive work give the couple time to work and reflect and challenge the behaviour that now unpin their communication and behaviours It is most important that clients have no outside distractions and can concentrate fully on the therapy programme in the given time. With the best will in the world interruptions in the form of family, work, pets, etc., can interfere with engaging one’s mind on the therapy process. Depending on the time allocated to the intensive therapy which could be four hours or two days For these reasons (2 days) it is recommended that clients check in to a local hotel, impose strict limitations on contact from friends and family (emergencies excepted) and limit alcohol consumption and interaction with other guests to the minimum so that the therapy receives full attention. Lottie is a highly skilled therapist who has a very open, flexible and pragmatic approach to therapy, sometimes it is directive, which can be challenging and sometimes it is very client centred, autonomy of the client, Lottie contains strict boundaries around client safety, confidentiality and works in a highly ethical way. She is frank and very honest and because topics may include sex, her language is explicit but always appropriate.
