Despite all the sexual hype in the media, most people find it difficult to talk about problems in their sex life. Many couples and individuals find that talking to an experienced and qualified psychosexual therapist can help them talk about and resolve their problems. In fact, according to Relate, 93% of clients who see a psychosexual therapist report that their sexual relationships become significantly better.
Psychosexual therapy is the new name for sex therapy as many sexual problems are rooted in our thoughts and emotions.
Sex therapy can help you with problems such as lack of desire, erectile dysfunction, pain on intercourse, inability to orgasm. Where there is a specific sexual disorder, I may suggest that you see your GP first, to rule out or investigate any underlying medical conditions.
You may be seeking help because you and your partner have got out of the habit of having regular sex, perhaps after an illness or the birth of a child.
Sometimes sexual difficulties are a symptom of unresolved conflicts within the relationship and these conflicts will need to be explored in counselling.
