Professional Psychotherapeutic Counselling in Surrey & Southwest London

Cecily Criminale is the Director of Suite 2.  Cecily created Suite 2 so that her local community, as well as those without therapeutic support in their area, could find a safe place to talk. 


She is a psychosexual therapist who works with individuals and relationships to address emotional, physical and sexual intimacy.  Cecily is sex positive and respects the diversity in erotic preferences and sexual pleasure.

Cecily Criminale MS, MEd, MA

Cecily approaches her work with positivity and belief in the people she works with.  She offers a confidential and comfortable environment to speak about things that may have never been said, or feel can’t be said to family and friends.  Cecily offers a non-judgemental environment so that what you are holding ‘can’ be shared.


She is best known for her work with compulsive sexual behaviours and what are often referred to as love addiction and sex addiction.  These are often misunderstood phenomena, extremely confusing and emotionally difficult both for the person who is challenged by the behaviours, and for their partners.  Cecily is accustomed to working with the implications for the individual and their relationships around these behaviours including authenticity, identity, intimacy, sexual function, social engagement, financial, legal.  Whether the focus is on ‘Why?’, ‘What now?’, or ‘How to move forward?’, Cecily gives you support to explore the answers that feel right for you.


Cecily’s holds Master's degrees in Sexuality Education, and in Molecular and Behavioural Neuroscience.  She is an accredited member of the College of Sex and Relationship Therapists, the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, and EMDR UK & Europe, and a qualified member of the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Addiction & Compulsivity. Cecily practices IFS and is a Level 1 graduate.
