Elaine Tarsh

Specialist in relationship difficulties, sex therapy, and sex/porn addiction counselling



I work with individuals and couples focusing on relationships, sex therapy and sex & porn addiction. Often couples are stuck in a cycle of conflict, or they may have lost the intimacy in their relationship. I help people identify the relevant issues and work with them to rebuild healthy relationships. Sometimes, where it seems to be impossible or inappropriate to rebuild relationships, we can work together to learn from the past and move on, even if this can be hugely challenging. Letting go of the past is never easy, but it is possible to move forward, without trying to recreate the relationship as it was in the early years.
Over many years as a Relate counsellor and in my private practice, I have worked with many couples and individuals from all walks of life, facing different issues; their relationships being at the heart of the work I do.

Please consider getting in touch. You will find my approach non-judgmental, practical, positive and caring.
