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 sex and relationship psychotherapist working with individuals and couples. I work inclusively and affirmatively, particularly with gender, sexual and relationship diversity (GRSD), neurodiversity, race, religion and cultural differences.

I help adults of all ages to work through a wide range of relationship and psychosexual difficulties including sexual compulsivity and problematic pornography use (sometimes referred to as ‘porn addiction’). Common presentations I work with include infidelity, conflict, desire discrepancy, Vaginismus, Erectile Dysfunction, Kink, non-monogamy and exploring sexuality.

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. Some prefer more in-depth understanding or long term therapy while others may prefer solution focussed or short term therapy. My approach incorporates psychodynamic, person-centred, Imago and CBT concepts in addition to mindfulness and psychosexual therapeutic tools and techniques.

I work with both individuals and couples to understand and explore the difficulties they 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. Therapy is also available via Zoom, Telehealth and phone.

Daytime and evening weekday appointments are available Monday to Wednesday. 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. Throughout our life, 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 experiencing difficulty can leave you deeply unhappy and despairing, even if successful in other areas of your life.
