"Coming to see a psychosexual counsellor was one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make in life, but it was also one of the best decisions I’ve made. The first time I met the therapist, I was anxious and nervous. I had no idea of what to expect but somehow, she managed to help me feel at ease. I can’t express how grateful I was for that. She made it easy for me to be open. Nightingale provided me with a safe space where I felt that no one was judging me, and I was able to be open and honest."
"This was such a relief, as for almost a whole year I was bottling all my feelings, and this was putting a tremendous strain on my relationship with my wife. You listened to my situation and presented me with exercises that were helpful in rebuilding my sexual relationship with her. She helped me rediscover the importance of romance in a relationship and the pleasure of close contact, I now have a sex drive again and really enjoying intimate moments. I am feeling more positive now and believe my relationship is more secure and moving in the right direction again, thanks to your help. It is an exercise in patience and belief now, but I feel comfortable that if I need any support in helping me again, I can rely on you."
"My husband and myself were extremely apprehensive before we visited Nightingale. However, after our first session we felt a weight had been lifted from our shoulders. Our therapist helped us see that the one particular outcome we were focused on was just a small part of a bigger picture. We found we were discussing things neither of us had discussed for years. Our therapist has a genuine and caring nature which made all the difference to our counselling experience. Not only is she down to earth and approachable, but she is also incredibly insightful. We can’t thank her enough."
We hope you can take comfort from these testimonials and find the strength to address your sexual issues. We are only a phone call away.
