Brexit is like a marital divorce: Relationship therapist, Juliet Grayson, draws profound comparisons between Britain breaking off from the EU and a failed marriage

Published GQ Online on Wed 27th June 2016.  

The end of a relationship can be a very traumatic experience, inducing the most powerful feelings of shock and abandonment. As a relationship therapist I can’t help but notice that the Remain voters’ response to the referendum last week is very similar to an individual who doesn’t want a divorce.

The Magical Marriage: why some people go off sex after eighteen months (mentions PBSP)

Published in HealthyNewAge Volume 2 June 2016

Once again, the fist came out of nowhere.  Ten-year-old John was sitting quietly at the kitchen table, doing his homework, mum in the background, cooking.  Then his father had come in.  Angry.  He’d lashed out before he’d said anything.  John had jumped between them.  He knew the only way to protect his mother was to take the beating himself.
“Get out of my way, boy.” His father turned to his mother, “You slag.  I saw you in the café.”
John, sweating, felt the pit of his stomach drop.  He could smell the scotch on his father’s breath.  Somehow he had to say something that would catch his father’s attention.  Turn his anger.  Protect his mother.
“You’re pissed,” John said.
That did it.  His father lashed out at him, unsteady he staggered backwards  and then came at him again.
“You little runt.  Just shut up.  SHUT UP!”.
Hours later, when the row was over, and the house was quiet again, apart from his father’s snoring, his mother came to him.  “You’re my little man.  Always there for me.”
“I’ll  protect you mum.  Don’t worry.  Don’t be sad.”

What we have here  is a ‘magical marriage’ between John and his mother.             Obviously, it’s not a literal marriage but they are treating each other like partners.  There is no sexual contact or inappropriate physical touch, but the relationship is emotionally incestuous.

Why being a sex and relationship therapist is like being a detective

Published in Female First Online on 6th June 2016.  And a slightly different version published in The Hippocratic Post on 10th June 2016.

When people ask Juliet Grayson, author of “Landscapes of the Heart: The working world of the sex and relationship therapist” what her job is like, she replies, “It’s great! I get to be a detective.”
One symptom, for example erectile dysfunction, can have many different causes – part of what Juliet does is find the cause specific to that person.
Using this one symptom as a starting point, Juliet Grayson explains why being a sex and relationship therapist is really all about being a detective:
Working with working with Dave and Caroline required a bit of careful sleuthing before I could help them;
Dave (aged 28) was tall, dark, and had erectile dysfunction. He’d been seeing Caroline, blonde, gorgeous and slim, aged 35, for two years. They had been living together for six months. His erection had begun to fail about five months ago. They still enjoyed oral sex and masturbating each other.

Obituary for Al Pesso who died 19th May 2016

written by Juliet Grayson and Sally Potter.  Published in the Guardian Online on 30th May 2016.

Al Pesso, who has died aged 86, was an innovative master of body-based psychotherapy. With his wife Diane, he created a method now known as the Pesso Boyden System Psychomotor (PBSP).
While teaching dancers to use their bodies to express inner feelings, Al and Diane realised how their pupils were limited physically and psychologically by emotional scars. To enable true, connected expression, they created an interactive method that drew on spatial relationships, specific words and physical touch to meet inner needs expressed by the client, and this developed into PBSP.

As told by a sex and relationship therapist by Juliet Grayson. Published in Healthy Magazine on 4th May 2016

Many of us will admit that our romantic relationships leave room for improvement – but where to begin? Juliet Grayson, a sex and relationship expert and author of Landscapes Of The Heart: The Working World Of A Sex And Relationship Therapist(Sleeping Mountain, £12.99), works with couples to improve their interactions.

     1 Be willing to do your personal work and heal your history
Many people are longing to get their childhood needs met by their partner. Others are negatively affected by experiences in their history, which get in the way of their current relationship.

Talking About Sex With Doctors

by Juliet Grayson.  Published 27th April 2016 in the Hippocratic Post

      “I don’t know if I can do it.” Jeremy seemed truly frightened. “My GP is a woman, and I can’t talk to her about my loss of sex drive.”
As a sex and relationship therapist in private practice, I’d been working with Jeremy (aged 43) and James (41) to explore their lack of sex. “It is my fault.” Jeremy had explained. “I am not that interested.”
My first task was to establish whether this was a lack of sexual desire, where the appetite for sex with a particular person is diminished? Or a lack of sexual drive (libido) where all sexual interest is reduced. Clarifying this I said, “Imagine we are talking about food. If you have lost your appetite completely, then it is drive. Whereas, if you have gone off a particular food, such as cheese, then that is desire.” I asked: “Do you masturbate? Do you ever find yourself thinking about sex? Is there anyone you fancy, maybe on TV?” If the answer to all three was no, then it was a lack of sex drive.  Click here to read more

One of the most common problems that I encounter as a sex and relationship therapist is the loss of interest in having sex…..
