I warmly welcome you to my website and to consider what I can offer if you are struggling with issues, or if you are stuck and would like to find a happier place to be, within yourself.
My name is Lesley Inglis Sex and Relationship Psychotherapist (and Online Counsellor UK ) and I have been providing Counselling and Psychosexual Therapy in the Scottish Borders, Edinburgh, Newcastle and Berwick upon Tweed for the past fifteen years. I specialise in treating various difficulties that I address on these pages and work within a sunny atmosphere of respect, acceptance and confidentiality. I understand how painful emotional distress can often lead to feeling vulnerable and afraid. Let me help you to find the strength and courage to move forward from a state of angst and closer to a calmer, more positive way of being. If you have Fibromyalgia, are Expats, with relationship difficulties & Mental Health conditions, I will also be happy to hear from you .
What can you expect from working with me on difficult issues?
I shall listen carefully to you and will ask questions to help me understand your difficulty, i.e. the assessment process. I shall also be specific about what is helpful and what is unhelpful if you wish to change any behaviours that are problematic. I consider all aspects of human behaviour without embarrassment and will put you at ease. I have wide experience of people and their challenges. I feel privileged to help you understand yourself, situations and relationships better and to take steps to make positive changes, if that is your wish.
What kind of people problems do I work with?
How many sessions do people need? Initial Free 30min Consultation -overviewing difficulties
I work with individuals and couples on an open-ended basis or a set number of sessions. I am very experienced at providing brief therapy (6 session model) for mild to moderate mental health difficulties. A lot of couple work is helping partners to have difficult conversations, to understand each other as individuals and your needs as a couple. Online Psychosexual Therapy and Addiction work is likely to be a longer term therapy. If you just want one session to find out if working with me is right for you, that is also ok. What is most important is that I work with 'people' not just conditions or diagnoses. I offer a safe, trusting and genuine therapeutic relationship built on empathy and compassion.
Prevention of Sexual Offending STOPSO
I work confidentialy & none judgementally for the specialist organisation StopSo to help prevent Sexual Offending. Whether you are having difficult thoughts e.g. tempted to explore illegal websites or you have been cautioned or charged with an offence, I will work with you to help you stop any further sexual offending and to also understand why this behaviour occurs and what you can do to stop it, in order to keep others and yourself safe.
With easy access to sexual websites, porn, chat lines, hook up sites and more, it is becoming increasingly tempting for people to start exploring ‘edgy’ activities and this can easily spiral into illegal behaviour. Young men are particularly at risk of becoming dependent on porn. If you are worried about sexual offending and want to work to stop this, please email me. Partners and other family members who are emotionally impacted by this behaviour can also access help. I am particularly reaching out to women as well as men to have courage to come forward for help
