Interview with Colin Richards
Colin is my go-to referral point for clients who bring sex or relationship matters to my practice that I need to forward on. He can be fully trusted for confidentiality and helping with potentially awkward or shy feelings about our most personal problems or issues. Our conversation focuses on human behaviour and drives, how he helps and educates clients, the changing nature of sex and sexuality in society and how his work crosses over with mine.
