Rose is a member of COSRT and practices psychosexual therapy within the professional and ethical standards set by COSRT visit www.cosrt.org.uk Rose also offers training to other counsellors and psychotherapists in Cornwall.

Rose works with all sexual dysfunctions with individuals and couples of any sexual orientation. Sexual dysfunctions such as loss of desire, loss of interest in sex, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, difficulty obtaining orgasm, pain during sexual activities, and difficulty achieving penetration are all common problems in a relationship.

Sex is an important aspect of an adult’s life and the lack of intimacy that can result from a sexual dysfunction, or just getting out of the habit, does create frustration and sadness for many.

Guarantees aren’t possible but Rose has extremely high success rates in helping couples overcome these difficulties and achieve the intimacy and quality of life together that they want.

Rose also works with a wide range of other sexual problems and specialises in working with sexual addiction to support addicts and their partners through the changes they want to make.

Rose helps individuals wanting to work on issues and make changes in their current life.  Often difficult experiences from the past have an effect in the present that has become unhelpful and leaves someone feeling stuck.  Psychotherapy can help make the changes people want in moving forward in their life. Psychotherapy may be time-limited or long-term.

Rose offers EMDR, a powerful, psychological therapy, and has helped many people overcome trauma arising from experiences as diverse as war, childhood abuse or neglect, natural disaster, assault, road traffic accidents and workplace incidents.  Rose has used EMDR to help many people with a number of conditions such as anxiety, obsessions, phobias, depression and chronic pain.

Rose is specialised in working with childhood trauma using EMDR, including early years experience. Early years trauma experienced before the age of 4 is not stored in the brain in the same way as other memories.  However the body holds these experiences and the EMDR work to resolve this is working with what the body remembers.

As a trauma therapist Rose can give gentle support and help needed when someone is struggling with past or current experiences.  Rose offers EMDR therapy for people wanting fast and effective treatment of traumatic events.
