David Bromberg, MA, MFCC, Altarinda Road, Orinda, CA, Phone: 510-254-6885, Email: davyd3@webtv.net. I feel that sexual uniqueness is an aspect of ourselves which must be embraced, accepted and allowed to reflect who we are. Our personality is most sensitively and personally reflected in sexual fantasy and preferences. Because our sexual longings are so basic and primal in our human experience, there is often a great benefit in dispelling any hurtful myths (and judgments) that may cause shame, or other harm. To me, psychotherapy is a kind of untangling of the many (often self-injurious) messages that function to block creativity, and self expression. To embrace and understand the once-hidden places, may be the most important avenue toward self-expression and even self-fulfillment. (w)

A Acceptance Counseling, Joseph S. Auria, M.A., LCPC, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, 2211 Langdon Place, Hoffman Estates, IL 60195, 847-884-7343, fax: 847-884-6236, email: GIOCHERO@aol.com. Mr. Auria operates a general counseling practice and specializes in the treatment of adults who were raised in dysfunctional homes or lived with an alcoholic parent or relative. An active member of Adult Children of Alcoholics for 15 years, Mr. Auria has worked to develop a method of treatment which addresses the three basic areas of the person. Mind - Body - Spirit. Creating a sense of balance among these areas is essential to developing a healthy, happy and fulfilling life. Personal Statement: Most people find it understandable to work to improve mental functioning, or can undertake an exercise program to improve their physical condition. Still they feel like they have the first 35 inches on the yard stick of life, but the last inch is missing. that last inch is the spiritual facet of life. This is not always a religious element but one that is transcendental . . . one which drives you forward and upward to be more than you are and to seek constant improvement of yourself and your experiences of your life and your world. Treatment Areas: Mr. Auria has experience treating the following areas: addictions, adult children of alcoholics, AIDS-related issues, alcoholism, anxiety disorders, assertiveness, bereavement / brief, childhood sexual abuse victims, divorce, drug abuse, eating disorders, family systems, gay and lesbian issues, low self-esteem, marriage / couples issues, men's issues, obsessive-compulsive disorders, panic, smoking cessation, spiritual counseling, and procrastination. Treatment Modalities: Mr. Auria provides individual psychotherapy, guided imagery, and hypnosis / hypnotherapy. Mr. Auria works with adults and families.

Michael Bernet, Ph.D., Brooklyn and Manhattan, NY. By appointment only. Phone: 718-284-4162, Email: mBernet@AOL.com. Fee Schedule: In office, Brooklyn or Manhattan: $100 for first session (approx. 60 minutes), negotiable after that in case of genuine need. By phone or email: $40 for 30 minutes, prepaid (cash or money order). 10% reduction for card-carrying members of alternate sexual organizations. Our approach is humanistic/cognitive, with great respect for the individual. We work on the mind/spirit/body interface. We won't set out to "cure" you of your special sexual interests, but we will work to help you overcome elements such as guilt, anxiety, ambivalence. Some of the issues we may work on: how to enjoy or adapt your special interests without falling afoul of the law; how to deal better with your "scene" partner and develop greater thrills and pleasures, for yourself and your partner; how to enjoy your selected lifestyle without falling afoul of your children, parents, neighbors, boss, or significant other; how to share your special interests with a novice or "vanilla" partner; how to find your partner in the scene and develop the relationship you seek; how to develop alternative safe and pleasurable sexual enjoyment if your current interests put you or your partner at risk (e.g. extreme SM scenes, violence, paedophilia, incest, asphyxiation orgasms). NOTE: This is a legitimate, professional, psychotherapy service on the highest professional standards. We do not permit overt sex-play in sessions in the office, and we are not a dating service. Please, no frivolous calls, no late-night calls, and no deep-breathers. In accordance with the highest professional standards, your privacy and confidentiality will be fully preserved at all times. Preferred client population: the sexually adventurous, all fetishes. You won't be able to shock our professional staff. We are comfortable, understanding and helpful with all sexual styles and orientations, and offer a professional service that is not readily available "out there." While we work comfortably with gay people and welcome all without distinction, we think that in many cases, if you are gay and not into "the scene" or fetishes, etc., a specialist in gay issues on the "vanilla" level, may offer you more effective help. We do not confine ourselves to specific sex or "scene" issues only but will happily work on the full range of "vanilla" issues too--self-esteem, shyness, anxiety, depression, phobias, romance, job, relationships . . . . . and you can readily tell us your inner secrets without fear of shock or ridicule or attempt to get you to change. Languages spoken: French, German, Hebrew, Yiddish.

The Institute philosophy expands the definition of recovery and includes psychological and cultural addictions like self-sabotaging behavior, self-diminishment, projections of negatives and other outer manifestations of internalized dilemmas. The recovery in this sense is from conscious and unconscious blocks -- including, but not limited to what we customarily call additions -- that prevent us from getting our deepest and most basic needs fulfilled. We offer programs tailored for male and female adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse, persons recovering from drug and other addictions, and individuals with alternative sexual lifestyles (e.g. fetishes/SM) who either wish to integrate these so as to enhance intimate relations or who have particular difficulties they wish to work on in a fetish/sm supportive environment.

Keith Barber, Counselor, in training leading to Diploma in Counseling, Training Organization: Re-Vision, 97 Brondesbury Road, London, NW6 6RY, other address: 17 Holland Road, East Ham, London, E6 2EW, 0181 470 1096, email: keith@gaybles.demon.co.uk, fee is currently £12 per hour. Low-cost psychological counseling offered by trainee Counselor, dealing with a wide range of presenting issues. The Integrative Psychosynthesis orientation uses the ideas of Roberto Assagioli as a framework in which both analytic and person-centered methods and insights contribute to the healing work. Care of the Soul, understood as the most deeply and individually human aspect of our being, is at the heart of my practice. Soul strikes me as an earthy thing, including all that is dark and irrational, in contrast to the transcendent light of Spirit and the reasoned, intellectual Ego (not that I neglect these either). Against this background I see the various forms of sexuality as manifestations of Soul, pointing us towards the truth of our being (as well as, often, a way of healing for the wounds we have incurred). Instead of "cure" which would submit our humanness to Ego's demands for "adjustment" and conformity, I therefore seek to facilitate healing of life's wounds and relief from their pain.

Christopher Coulson, MAHPP, Psychotherapist, 63 Bury Street, Norwich, Norfolk NR2 2DL, Phone: 01603 611394, and 31 Bucklesham Road, Kirton, nr Felixstowe, Suffolk IP10 0PD, Phone: 01394 448435, email: Christopher.Coulson@bigfoot.com. I work with individuals, couples and groups including many with concerns related to their preference for sexually-related alternatives, especially maledom/femsub, BDSM, fetishism and transvestism. For me, these are human behaviours arising naturally from a particular set of genetic and environmental factors and not signs of pathology. Because of societal impact, however, and because of conflicts of preference, they can cause difficulties both individually and in relationships. Psychotherapy and couples therapy can often make a difference here. I am registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy, which is the UK's governing body for psychotherapists, and accredited through the Association for Humanistic Psychology Practitioners of which I am also the General Secretary. My original training was gained in the USA at the Cambridge Psychotherapy Institute. I was born in 1946. Aside from the couples, of which a proportion are single-sex, my practice is split approximately 60/40 females/males. My approach to therapy is collaborative and non-judgmental but also rigorous in its exploration and evaluation of my clients' issues. I do have a broad agenda for my clients which is that they become totally accepting of themselves and learn to take strength from their wonderful human uniqueness. They are thus enabled to live lives more fully directed by their true inner selves. Sometimes this results in their developing their sexual interests further and sometimes in their letting them go. Either way, my ongoing clients report a higher level of comfort and pleasure in their daily lives, experiencing improvements both as individuals and in their relationships. My charge is £40.00 per 50-minute session and clients attend sessions on a regular basis once or twice per week. Because I work on a long-term basis I provide one session without charge for the prospective client(s) and myself to meet and discuss matters before we make a commitment to the therapy. I am happy to answer brief questions before arranging an introductory session. (w)
