Sandra has been a clinical psychologist and sex therapist for 40 years. She trained in sex therapy when she did her Master of Psychology (Clinical) with Dr Ron Farmer in the early 1970s, and then conducted her research for her PhD thesis on postpartum sexual desire and enjoyment. She has worked in many clinical settings, including community health, state mental health services, and private practice. She believes that maintaining a varied clinical practice and not exclusively focussing on sexual problems has enabled her to develop a broad perspective on the experience of sexual distress in our culture.
She has had extensive experience training clinicians in sex therapy, contributing to the training of medical practitioners, psychologists, nurses, welfare workers and others. More recently she has presented three day workshops in the practice of sex therapy.
Sandra provides clinical supervision, both face-to-face and via Skype, for counsellors and therapists who deal with sexual issues.
She has written three books, A Commonsense Guide to Sex (Angus & Robertson, 1985; Revised Edition HarperCollins, 1994); Perfectly Normal: Living and Loving with Low Libido (Rodale, 2005); andWhen Your Sex Drives Don’t Match: Discover Your Libido Types to Create a Mutually Satisfying Sex Life (Marlowe & Co, 2007), as well as having numerous articles published in the popular press, not only on sexuality but mental health issues in general.

Hello, I’m Jacqueline Hellyer. My mantra is ‘What’s Life Without Love?” and I’ve dedicated my life to discovering what really makes relationships work both in and out of the bedroom. Highly qualified and with thousands of hours working with individuals and couples around sex and relationships, I have a real skill in helping people feel more confident, aware and inspired around all aspects of sex, love and intimacy.

On weekends I run couples retreats; workshops for women and for men; the monthly Tantric Lounge; plus an annual five-day couples retreat in Bali.
I take a transpersonal, psychobiological and positive psychological coaching approach to working with you:
- Transpersonal therapy addresses the whole person: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual,
- Psychobiologicaltherapy utilises neuroscience, language and biological processes to aid in change,
- Positive psychologyfocuses on strengths rather dysfunctions,
- Coachingis client-centred, solution-focused, dynamic and brief.
