About Lisa Etherson Sex Therapy

Our practice aims to help anyone experiencing sexual problems, including compulsive sexual behaviour, to know that meaningful and lasting recovery is possible. Our objective is to create a comfortable and healing environment, where you or you and your partner(s) can grow and develop a loving, intimate relationship.

I'm a qualified sex therapist with over 20 years of experience working with people with emotional difficulties. By entering into me own process of self-discovery and emotional healing, I have an authentic approach to therapy, which helps me to help others who are looking for more fulfilling intimate relationships. Having completed a post-graduate diploma in psychosexual therapy, I'm now embarking on a PhD, exploring shame, relational trauma and compulsive sexual behaviour.

In order to thrive as people, we must nurture ourselves and our intimate connections with others. Sometimes, this is difficult to do and what is often needed is what Alice Miller would call a helping witness, someone who has been there before you, who can understand and help you to make sense of what you are feeling and why.

I take great care to provide a therapeutic environment that is compassionate and sensitive to ensure that growth and healing can take place.
