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?
- Sex has become routine and is always the same.
- No desire for sex with your partner (loss of desire/libido)
- Erectile difficulties; losing erections (erectile dysfunction)
- Difficulties with orgasm (anorgasmia, premature ejaculation, delayed ejaculation)
- Maybe there are body image issues and sexual confidence issues.
- You may be questioning your sexual identity
- There may be vaginal discomfort or painful sex.
- There maybe 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.
