How Sex and Intimacy are Affected by Common Relationship Problems
This seminar focuses on what lies underneath the issues presented by couples or individuals coming for therapy for help with conflict in the relationship with a partner.
The most common issues that I am told about by couples in my practice have to do with, Inequality often illustrated by rows and arguments about chores, childcare and workaholism.
Lack of communication, frequently one partner described as “unresponsive. ”Not being listened to coupled with both partners feeling permanently in the wrong. Individuals frequently express, Feelings of loneliness and isolation within a relationship. Anxiety about how to talk about their needs in a relationship Sadness because they feel rejected and don’t know how to address this without seeming to be demanding or clingy.
This seminar looks at these issues through the lens of intimacy. Often people in conflicted relationships have lost emotional and physical intimacy and this can lead to an escalation of irritation, blame, accusation and loneliness.
We will look at ways of helping the clients to talk openly about their emotional and sexual needs. To look at how the relationship used to be, what changed and why.

Sussex Counselling & Psychotherapy Annual General Meeting 2020
The Sussex Counselling and Psychotherapy Annual General Meeting will now be held on 8th August at the Holiday Inn, Brighton BN1 2JF at 10am. We will, of course, be mindful of any social distancing measures that will probably be in force at that time.
Please do you best to attend as a number of Committee positions need to be filled. Further details will be sent shortly.
As someone who is a non-directive counsellor with Rogerian skills and nonjudgmental positive regard, you can now add to your toolbox some practical directive skills. By putting the various 'theories into practice' we can work on a variety of issues, using NLP, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, CBT, or any other theoretical approach which seems appropriate when working with your client.
It will be an actively involved workshop offering you an opportunity to practice in a supportive group.
This interactive workshop is based upon a real complaint procedure experienced by a Psychotherapy and Counselling Union (PCU) member, which raised many issues and dilemmas. To explore these dilemmas, we will each be tied together with coloured twine to create a living network and experience how each person in the system, clients, therapists, supervisors, professional bodies, insurers, solicitors and so forth impact each other. As each person moves in the network (or workshop room), each crosses the string and pulls on others.
The workshop will be a lot of fun. This highly interactive process will help us look at all the stakeholders involved in a complaint and how they interact in ways that may or may not be useful. During the debrief, we may consider how complaints contain a transformative seed. People don’t generally complain about something they don’t care about. We and the professional registration bodies could treat complaints as a doorway to deeper commitments with clients and ourselves. The language of complaints tells us what we can’t stand (Shohet, 2017). The language of commitment tells us what we stand for (Kegan & Lahey, 2009). PCU is committed to change how complaints are worked with. The philosophy underpinning this workshop is that by supporting therapists we support clients.
