College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists
Welcome to the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT), the UK’s leading organisation for therapists specialising in sexual and relationship issues.
COSRT exists to support healthy, satisfying and rewarding personal relationships. We understand that any partnership can run into difficulties occasionally, and that sometimes a bit of outside help can make all the difference.
On these pages you will find practical suggestions and advice for people who feel their personal relationships might need some help; as well as information for professional therapists and others who want to take advantage of the training, conferences and professional networking opportunities we offer.
COSRT organises two Conferences and a number of CPD Workshops each year which are open to members and non-members.

The topic for this year’s summer conference 2017 is trauma, something we often encounter in our work as therapists. We will be presenting an overview of trauma and the impact on the mind and body whilst linking the theory to practise to enable us as therapists to feel more confident when presented with trauma in our consulting room.
Object relations theory suggests that we are all driven to form relationships from the moment we are born. This way of thinking about an adult couple can access deeper, less conscious, levels of their relationship.
A forum for supervisors to come together to discuss practical, ethical and legal challenges of supervision in the sexual and relationship psychotherapy discipline.
