Relationship & Sex Therapist

Miranda Christophers - Certified Professional Sex and Relationship Therapist

My approach does not hold individuals to set norms or expectations, so regardless of your sexuality, gender identity, relationship status or personal situation, I will strive to enlighten and support you.

Counselling and Psychotherapy

I am an accredited therapist who helps people to work through relationship and psychosexual difficulties including sexual compulsivity and porn addiction. I work confidentially with clients using an integrative approach, drawing on various therapeutic approaches and tools to suit clients’ individual needs, as everyone is different and while some prefer more in depth understanding or long term therapy, others may prefer solution focussed or short term therapy. My approach incorporates psychodynamic, person centered, Imago and CBT concepts in addition to mindfulness and psychosexual therapeutic tools and techniques.

I work with both individuals and couples to help them understand and explore the difficulties they are are experiencing in their relationships or sex lives in order to help them overcome them, while building confidence, learning new skills/ theories and gaining insight to help them to enjoy healthy relationships and sex lives.

Locations

My therapy rooms are in two locations – Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire and Harley Street, London. Both locations are near train and tube stations and are ideal for people where discretion is important to them in accessing therapy. You can also access therapy via Zoom or telephone.

Daytime and evening weekday appointments are available Monday to Thursday. Intensive therapy sessions are also available for clients in crisis or keen to work on issues in a limited time frame.

Philosophy

From the moment we are born, we enter a relationship: with a parent, with a carer, with a family. People have an inherent desire to be cared for, loved, belong and to be accepted. Through our lives we will inevitably have many platonic, romantic, work and family relationships that are sometimes chosen, and sometimes necessary. To truly understand and get the most of out such relationships, I believe individuals must have the space to confront, think and talk about such relationships. A good relationship can leave a person feeling confident, happy, secure and fulfilled. Conversely, one that is in difficulty can leave you deeply unhappy and despairing, even if successful in other areas of your life.
