Cover_TTNov13_I have been very busy recently. The onset of winter and the approach to Christmas inevitably leads to many people reflecting on their lives, family, friends, work. At this time of year many people begin to struggle with issues in these areas and can find it difficult to know where to turn for support. As a result, this leads many people on the path to sexual and relationship therapy. However, despite being busy with client work I have been prompted to also reflect on my own life experiences which led to  me embarking on my career as a Psychosexual and Relationship Therapist. With two other colleagues at Local Counselling Centre in Hertfordshire, Jo Coker and Julie Sale, we decided to combine our experiences of the psychosexual training we each undertook and subsequent experience of practising in the field as qualified therapists, from the perspective of our three different age groups – one of us in their thirties, one in our forties and one in our fifties. The result has now been published as an article “On Becoming a Sex Therapist” in this month’s Therapy Today.
