Turn around and turn away from where you've been and can no longer reside.
Turn around and turn away from what has ended.
Turn around and face what lies in front of you: the new path,the new destination,the new doors waiting to be opened.
How can I be of Help ?
Hello, my name is Jason Oddi
Welcome to my website.
I offer long and short term counselling and psychosexual therapy for couples and single clients.
I hold sessions in Central London and Central Brighton.
I have available space for clients on a lower income.
I draw on many years of expertise using different therapeutic models to guide clients towards self-enquiry. Awareness is the furnace for change.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (M.B.A.C.P) and a member of the College of Sexual and Relational therapists (M.C.O.S.R.T).
My preferred method of holding sessions is face to face although I also use skype .
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like an assessment Email here .
Psychosexual ( SEX) therapy
making sense of your unique sexual Journey
Sexual energy is at the core of our being and was the beginning of all our journeys into this world.There is nothing to be ashamed of by wishing to talk through ANY issues around sexuality , sexual energy , sexual language , sexual health and sexual beliefs.
I work with a range of issues that can affect the sexual connection. These may be body image issues , sexual health , infidelity , sexual identity ,gendered or non-binary, sexual engagement with ourselves or others , painful intercourse , sex addictions , sexual imagery use ,Impotency, cybersex + many others .
I trained at the Center for Psychosexual Health (CPH) www.psychosexualhealth.org.uk. The faculty is led by Cabby Laffy author of 'Love sex'.
There are many studies and much evidence to show that sexual energy (life force) is good for our health and well-being. The release of oxytocin known as the 'love' hormone aids our connection to ourselves and socially through being tactile and social/sexual dynamics.
Porn addiction , cybersex , fantasy sites and media driven erotic imagery have transformed relationships and how we see and share each others sexual journey.
In recent years I have volunteered at kink /sacred sexuality festivals/workshops supporting those who wish to explore and share their true sexual identity without fear of shame , guilt or persecution.
Problematic sexual issues can be a symptom of deeper emotional upset' trauma response and can lead to porn and cybersex / sexting / imagery . Common themes that come up when working with clients around addictions are Shame and Guilt.
Clients present with a wide range of symptoms relating to :
Dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
Hypo and Hyper arousal
Problematic sexual behaviours
and many others......
My work at mankindcounsellingLink here in Brighton supports male survivors of sexual abuse and is focused on the trauma model of psychosexual recovery. Sexual abuse has a deeply disturbing affect on relationships with internalised shame and guilt casting a debilitating shadow on self esteem and blocking the pleasure/arousal cycle. Many of my clients have felt freedom by exploring and acknowledging the sexual abuse they received or perpetrated.
Please visit the next page titled 'Psychosexual and relational therapy' to gain a broader understanding of my work.
Integrative counselling utilises many models of counselling to aid the process of healing and mental well being.
My work is focused holistically on the client(s) and not the label.
Here is a broad range of issues that clients have presented with over the years :
Couples ( relational) counselling
I offer support to couples who are having a difficult time relating to each other lovingly......
Relationships are not easy and need food to nurture and evolve. Therapy is an opportunity to re-model and re-engineer the relationship the you now want.
Together we can unearth and explore whats brought you here and put in place resources to help you to heal and re-connect. This is a challenging process that explores vulnerabilities and hopes for all parties.
Look over the page Psychosexual and relational counselling for more guidance.
Navigating the growing and ageing pains of a relationship can feel really daunting....lets work towards some solutions for change .
