The North Hampshire Clinic was opened by Carol Graham in 2016.  Carol had been a full-time psychotherapist in private practice for many years before she completed her post graduate qualification in psychosexual and relationship therapy.  Carol had been acutely aware of the lack of psychotherapists and counsellors in the North Hampshire area who had specialist psychosexual training enabling them to work ethically and competently with sexual and relationship issues, and so the clinic was born.

At the North Hampshire Clinic, we specialise in Sex Therapy, Relationship Counselling and Sex Education. We offer a non-judgmental, safe environment for you to explore your sexuality, your relationships and the problems that they may bring.

We have a healthy outlook on sex and don’t have any trouble talking about it. Sex is fundamental, after all, it is the reason we are all here!

Carol Graham

Founder of the North Hampshire Clinic, Psychotherapist, Psychosexual & Relationship Therapist, Hypnotherapist and EMDR Practitioner.

Carol specialises in psychosexual and relationship therapy and is the founder of the North Hampshire Clinic in Basingstoke. Carol is a fully qualified Psychotherapist, Psychosexual & Relationship Therapist, Hypnotherapist and EMDR Practitioner. She is an accredited member of the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT), a senior accredited member of the National Council of Psychotherapists (NCP) and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).

“I have been enjoying a truly fascinating and rewarding career for many years helping people change their thoughts and behaviours for a better life experience. Using the many tools in my therapeutic tool box, I have helped hundreds of clients with many issues.” Since opening the North Hampshire Clinic, and choosing to specialise in sex and relationship issues, I have noticed that my work hasn’t changed that much.  I am still working with fears, phobias, addictions, anxiety, depression, weight and body image issues, confidence and motivation issues. It’s obvious; whatever is going on in your life, if something is affecting your mental health, your physical health, your finances, your work or your relationships, it’s almost surely going to affect your sex life”.

“I have always had a very healthy outlook on sex, I’m sex positive and I’m able to be very open and candid with my clients.  I believe it’s because of this, that they very quickly begin to feel at ease. I approach my work with kindness, empathy and a little bit of humour, where it’s appropriate”.

“As an Integrative Psychosexual & Relationship Therapist, I draw on therapeutic techniques and understanding from the Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, Existential, Gestalt, CBT and Attachment models of therapeutic counselling to create a unique, flexible and personalised way of working with you that is tailored to your own specific needs and difficulties.”

“I aim to create a confidential and non-judgemental therapeutic space with you that is safe, trusted and sensitive to your individual needs, so that you can freely explore the issues that are troubling you without feeling judged or forced into making decisions that are not right for you.

Above all, as well as the serious stuff, I aim to create a therapeutic environment that can be fun, playful, humorous and exciting……..after all, isn’t that what healthy sex and relationships are too!!”

Steven Hayward

Trainee Psychosexual Therapist

Steven is currently completing his post-graduate training in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy and is joining Carol to complete his psychotherapy certifications. He will be working at the Clinic every Wednesday. Steven is a member of the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT) and is bound by their ethical codes of practice.

“I am passionate about living a fulfilled life. A big part of our happiness and general well-being is rooted in positive and fulfilling relationships with others. Nowhere is this more pertinent than in our romantic and sexual relationships. Unfortunately, we aren't gifted with a perfect instruction manual that defines how our relationships or our sexuality must function and so occasionally we become stuck or find ourselves against an obstacle that we are unable to tackle alone. I provide a safe and supportive space where you can be real, be heard, and be free from judgement. If you are an individual and would like to talk with me about a sexual issue; or if you are a couple and would like to work on your relationship, then I offer open-ended therapy for as long as you need, and will always strive to give you the best opportunity to explore and work on your difficulty or your challenge."

During Steven's training, we are offering sessions with him at £40 for one hour. His work will be mentored by Carol Graham together with regular clinical supervision from a COSRT accredited clinical supervisor, to ensure the efficacy of his psychotherapy practice. If you would like to take advantage of this reduced cost and book a session, please email us at info@northhampshireclinic.co.uk stating you would like an appointment with Steven.

Steven has a background in IT management and design and has worked in many industries including Investment Banking, Telecommunications, and Industrial and Medical Gases. He also has a keen interest in the philosophy of mind, especially consciousness, ethics, rationality, and free-will. Steven has been a musician for over thirty years, holds a black-belt in karate, and can solve any Rubik's cube in about 20 seconds!

“I started working with Carol in 2018 and quickly found a passion for the work that she has been doing within the Clinic. I found it extremely interesting, and eye-opening, learning and understanding the true intricacies of sex and relationships, together with the real difference that being open and communicating with your partner (and others) can make I am extremely excited to be co-creating the new e-Therapy courses with Carol, which will allow us to support more couples and individuals, who for many reasons may not be able to access face to face therapy sessions”
