Couples counselling, psychosexual therapy and relationship counselling
in Central Bristol and North Somerset with Duncan E. Stafford
Couples, relationship and sex therapy in Bristol, North Somerset and Online
Welcome to my North Somerset (BS48) and central Bristol (BS1) couples and relationship-focused counselling and sex therapy practice. I offer relationship and sex therapy for women, men and couples in person in North Somerset and Greater Bristol area or by secure online video chat* throughout the UK. I can also 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.).
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.
In my North Somerset and 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 also 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 many LGBGTQ+ individuals and couples.
People have diverse issues around relationship problems, psychological sexual issues, risky and addictive behaviour with partners. Below I have listed some of the most common reasons that bring people to my practice:

**My book, Turned On: Intimacy in a pornized society (Witting Press 2010) might be of use to anyone wanting, or needing, to inform themselves on a range of aspects of hardcore pornography use and addiction, and therapy. (If you are a counsellor or psychotherapist you might also find this book of use.)

Practice opening times
Tuesday to Thursday: 8am to 6.30pm

As well as working with individuals and couples who live and work in Bristol (BS1 to BS48) I also work via telephone and Skype* with people in Cambridge, Birmingham, Exeter, Bath, Norwich, Glasgow and London.
*I prefer to use a platform called Vsee. Vsee is designed as a telemedicine platform and performs well on low bandwidth so is less likely to dropout, stutter or let us down during our therapy session. Please talk to me about these issues. If you have an Apple product that supports FaceTime, we can use this as it is end-to-end encrypted. For Android users WhatApp is also end-to-end encrypted. Telephone is seen as being secure for the purpose of therapy.
