  • Psychosexual sequelae of sexual abuse
  • Sexuality, cancer, and terminal care

Note: We are not qualified to accept referrals for:

  • Long standing psychiatric conditions

This is a brief intervention, not long-term support. Patients need to be able to retain information, reflect and interpret. We are not commissioned to investigate or prescribe for psychosexual problems, so any investigation should be done prior to referral.
