Couples counselling, psychosexual therapy and relationship counselling

in Central Bristol, BS1 and Online with Duncan E. Stafford

I work both in room and online blending remote technologies with face-to-face work. I've been working online for more than 15 years. While online therapy might still be new for you, it is something that I am very experienced, comfortable and enthusiastic about using. I regularly use a number of platforms - including FaceTime, Sessions, WhatsApp, Zoom and Skype but am open to using other platforms if needs be. (Last updated 21 April 2024)

Couples, relationship and sex therapy in Bristol and Online

Welcome to my Bristol (BS1) couples and relationship-focused counselling and sex therapy practice. I offer relationship and sex therapy for all kinds of people and couples both in person in the Greater Bristol area and online. My central location is convenient for those living in North Somerset. My online sessions allow people to book video chat* throughout the UK. I can offer telephone work if this is required. As a BACP accredited and registered counsellor / psychotherapist I work with all counselling and psychotherapy issues (you can click to go to my general practice website.).

I am very experienced in working with relationship and sexual issues, and this website gives detailed information about the way I work with all genders and couples on sex and relationship issues. I have particular experience of working with couples and individuals around sexual intimacy problems, sexual dysfuntion, poly relationship issues, kink issues and sexual addiction difficulties, including porn addiction, sexual risk taking and difficulties associated with prostitution.

It can feel great to be part of a couple but it is not always easy to sustain that feeling; the closer a couple are, the more potential problems there can be.

Are you a couple where one or both of you identify as neurodivergent? I have considerable experience of working with couples where one or both people identify as ADHD, ADD or is on the ASD spectrum. You don't have to wait until crisis point before you book an initial couples session.

In my Central Bristol relationship and couples counselling and therapy practice, I work with couples of all sexual orientations as well as with individual women's and men's difficulties. I have considerable experience of working with individuals and couples who identify as being polyamorous or part of an 'open' couple. My practice is kink friendly and I have worked with people from the LGBGTQI+ community for more than 20 years.

People have diverse issues with relationships with problems including psychological/sexual issues and risk and addictive behaviour. Below I have listed some of the most common reasons that bring people to my practice:

  • mismatched libidos
  • low sex/no sex
  • loss of intimacy
  • pornography use
  • loss of attraction
  • neurodiversity (including: ADHD, ADD, ASD (Asperger's)
  • infidelity
  • sexual dysfunction such as problems with erections
  • kink issues (BDSM)
  • identity issues
  • previous negative life events such as abuse or abandonment.
