Here is a word that can be highly inflammatory for some and very important for others. There are swathes of judgement around kink and also garlands of shame.
Do you share your fetish? Does it make you feel guilty? Does your partner know? Are you being being asked to participate in something you feel frightened of or perhaps even disgusted by? Are you secretly aroused by something but do not know how to make it a reality?
The edges to fetish: is a compulsion, is it wrong, am I addicted, bring up lots of questions and answers can only emerge through frank discussion.
I am a kink and fetish friendly therapist. Talking through the issues, whether emotional, moral or history-based can help let go of much suffering and open the way for discovering how to become comfortable with your particular kink.
I am Carolyn Cowan, a Psychosexual & Relationship Therapist who is also a sex addiction therapist and a member of COSRT & ATSAC.
You can make appointments to see me in Belgravia, central or south London. I can also work via Skype or FaceTime.
To discuss therapy options, clarify questions or to make an appointment I can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 0208 6513233
