Therapist Recommendations - UK or remote?

Hey everyone,

I’ve come to the conclusion after some thought that I could benefit from talking to a sexual health therapist. I was wondering if any of you might have some great recommendations.

Even though I’m no longer based in the UK, I’m more than open to video sessions.

Thanks in advance for your help!



I’m so glad your Mojo experience has got you thinking about what sort of support might suit you :blush:

A good first step is to browse a directory that lets you use filters to refine your search. This will help you see what’s out there and prompt you to reflect on what matters to you.

Try checking out Psychology Today’s UK online directory (you can also change it to the region you’re in now to look for face-to-face therapists):

There’s also the Counselling Directory (UK-based therapists only, but you can filter to those who offer online or phone sessions):

Some things to consider while you’re browsing are:

  • Where do you want the person to be based?
  • What time of day/week do you want to speak with them?
  • Do any styles of support seem like they’ll suit you more than others?
  • Do you think you’ll feel more comfortable with someone who’s a certain age or gender?
  • Do therapists’ pictures and descriptions on their profile “speak” to you?
  • Are any cultural or background factors important to you?
  • What sort of specialisms would you like them to have? (for example, as well as erection issues, you might like to talk about something from your past or another challenge you have)

Consider making a shortlist of therapists that stand out to you. From there, you can send them an email or set up a call to get a clearer picture of what it would be like to see them regularly.

And what about after you’ve had a few exploratory conversations? I spoke to one of our psychosexual experts, Amanda Barge, about how you know when a therapist is a good fit when you’re shopping around and speaking to different therapists, and she told me, “trust your gut!” A good therapist will make you feel comfortable and heard and will give you some hope about the work you could do together.

Anyway, I’m sure other Mojo members will have some advice and their own experiences to add. But I thought the above could be a good place to start.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

I hope you find someone great to start therapy with — I’m excited for you!


And one more tip — the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT) directory is dedicated to UK therapists with psychosexual specialties.

I find it’s harder to browse the COSRT directory because it doesn’t have the filters the other options have. But it might be a helpful additional resource for you, especially to check up on the accreditations and affiliations of someone you come across in your other searches:
