Over 3 Years Post-Accreditation Experience

Welcome. I'm Priya Tourkow. I'm an accredited psychosexual therapist and an accredited and registered counsellor and psychotherapist - I assist individuals and couples with their emotional health. I hold private sector experience as a psychosexual therapist and a counsellor and psychotherapist. My focus involves relationship problems, as well as the particular obstacles experienced by men and women.

What to Expect

A preliminary assessment meeting allows you to see if you feel comfortable with me, share what concerns you, ask questions, understand confidentiality, and determine if therapy could benefit you. Please use a contact option on the right to arrange an introductory assessment appointment in Barnet.

Counselling

Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You determine what issue concerning your childhood or adult life you explore. An aim of counselling is to enable you to speak about a difficulty and discover a way forward that is right for you.

Psychosexual Therapy

Psychosexual therapy focuses on treating the sexual difficulties you encounter. When appropriate, you complete treatment activities privately at your home. Psychosexual therapy aims to help you overcome sexual difficulties.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you obtaining insight into the difficulties you confront. It considers your ideas, emotions and significant moments in your life. Psychotherapy aims to help you change or discover suitable methods of managing.

Thoughts on Mental Health

Many people are concerned about their sexual desire - 'Am I wanting sex too much or too little, or why aren't I interested in sex?' The truth is there is no hard and fast rule, though for a couple it's helpful if both are comfortable with the amount of intimacy and sex they have. Intimacy and sex are not quite the same thing, yet intimacy is essential to most humans and definitely enhances sexual activity, which most would like to enjoy and feel positive about. It is normal to have less (or perhaps more) desire for sex, in certain circumstances. Some common causes of changes in sexual desire include: illness, feeling disconnected from your partner, being unhappy about your body image, and distractions such as technology or porn. You may also experience a change in your sexual desire if you are feeling emotionally stressed, for example if you are depressed, suffering loss or conflict. You may not be enjoying sex, have a fear of failure, or sexual problems such as pain on intercourse, premature ejaculation, erection difficulties or inability to orgasm; or you may have issues relating to sexual abuse you've experienced in the past.†Ideally, talking to a counsellor who understands psychosexual issues is a good starting place for both couples and individuals.
