Selena Doggett-JonesIntegrative therapist
I specialise in relationship, sex and intimacy problems with both couples and individuals. I also work with couples where one partner's depression may be impacting negatively on the relationship. Most people have anxieties about relationships, intimacy and sexual difficulties at some point in their lives. Relationship and psychosexual therapy offers the opportunity to discuss your concerns with a therapist specially trained in this area of work in a safe, supportive and confidential environment. I also worked for many years as a nurse specialist in sexual and reproductive health. I am a supervisor and visiting tutor for Couple Therapy for Depressioin at Tavistock Relationships.
I see a very varied client group for both short and longer term therapy. I work with diverse gender identities and sexual orientations, cultures, religious beliefs, and social backgrounds. I have worked with a variety of physical and learning disabilities. I see both people who are in relationships and those who are not.
I am happy for you to contact me by email or phone. You can also look at my website www.highgatetherapy.co.uk
