Ian Baker

Working as psychosexual therapist at Relate, Ian was drawn into studying and qualifying as a sex addiction therapist. It is an area he finds rewarding whilst challenging. He finds his work draws upon his training in relational therapy as well, to help individuals and partners deal with the impact of sexual addiction(s). Having worked at Relate and previously with charities focused on domestic violence and childhood sexual abuse, he now solely works in private practice.  Ian was previously a founding trustee of the Counselling in Prisons Network and before embarking on a career as a counsellor he worked overseas for two voluntary organisations in South America on research projects. Before volunteering, he worked in finance where he was involved in identifying and promoting companies to professional investors, becoming proficient in analysing report and accounts, business models and cash flows. Ian is Vice Chair of ATSAC.
