Whether you are gay, lesbian, bisexual, heterosexual or transgender, if you are experiencing problems or difficulties in your sexual relationship, psychosexual therapy can help you resolve them. This service is often referred to as sex therapy.

What are the most common issues people bring to sex therapy?

  • All intimacy and sex have stopped in the relationship
  • No desire for sex (loss of desire/libido or hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD))
  • Erectile difficulties; losing erections (erectile dysfunction)
  • Difficulties with orgasm (anorgasmia, premature ejaculation, delayed ejaculation)
  • Body image issues and sexual confidence issues.
  • Questioning your sexual identity
  • Vaginal discomfort or painful sex (vaginismus or genito-pelvic pain/penetration disorder (GPPPD)).
  • Unresolved historical sexual trauma or abuse.

People gain a range of benefits from psychosexual therapy depending on their needs and the difficulties they bring. Talking about sexual problems can seem daunting, and most people feel really relieved to discuss the problems that may have been bothering them for some time and this, in itself, can have very beneficial effects on your sex life. For other people, a structured programme of help (behavioural tasks, mindfulness) can resolve problems with painful intercourse, difficulties with orgasm, arousal disorders, erectile dysfunction and premature or delayed ejaculation.

How many sessions will you need and what is the cost?

It’s difficult to say, we review the suitability of the treatment plan and your progress in every session, but on average 20-30 sessions over the period of one year.
