Certified Relationship Counsellor and Psycho-sexual Therapist
Denise Knowles has worked for RELATE, the UK's largest provider of relationship counselling and sex therapy, where she was a RELATE certified relationship counsellor and psycho-sexual therapist for more than 16 years. She has helped people through a wide spectrum of relationship issues, including family counselling, parent counselling, communications issues, sex therapy and behavioural issues.
Ms. Knowles has received a certificate in the Theory and Practice of Couple Counselling, a certificate in Systemic Practice in Family Therapy, and training in Effective Anger Management in Medical & Caring Professions.
She has had much experience helping clients and their loved ones deal with the diagnosis and challenges associated with chronic illnesses, including multiple sclerosis (MS). Throughout her career, Ms. Knowles has helped families and couples in their teens to their 80's deal with a variety of issues, providing counselling and support to help them communicate, express their true feelings and break down the barriers that they face in their relationships.
In her weekly advice column, which airs on BBC Radio Northampton, Denise discusses many relationship and health issues and provides advice to callers both on and off the air. She is married and has three grown up children - two sons and a daughter.
Denise has worked professionally with people for about 20 years in various forums. If you "Google" her, you'll find out more! You may well recognise her name from a host of quotes in magazines or newspapers or remember her from one of many television appearances or recognise her voice from 1000' s of hours on radio programmes. More recently she has been a guest speaker at conferences worldwide, speaking about the impact of Multiple Sclerosis on couple and family relationships. She has also been invited to sit on Advisory Boards.
But, believe it or not, most of Denise's work is with individuals, with couples and with families.
