Sex therapy

Problems with sex can occur at any point in life. Some people learn to manage this difficulty themselves, however for others, sexual problems can create a lot of distress and unhappiness. A good sexual relationship plays a small but significant part of a couple’s relationship, however when there are difficulties this can have a marked impact on the totality of their relationship.

Sex therapy can assist people with various sexual problems, including

  • lack of desire
  • difficulty getting or keeping an erection (erectile dysfunctions)
  • rapid or delayed ejaculation or other ejaculation problems
  • difficulty having an orgasm
  • pain during sex or inability to have penetrative sex

An assessment can help to establish whether the cause is psychological, physical or a combination of the two. Sex therapy is predominantly CBT; otherwise known as cognitive behavioural therapy, which focuses on thoughts, feelings and behaviour and bespoke treatment plans are created for our clients. Much of the treatment plan involves guiding client/s through practical exercises which are performed in the privacy of their own home.

Many couples find that the experience of sex therapy a deeply enriching experience. It is one of the most successful therapies available and can enhance a relationship on many levels. Not only do clients learn more about their own and their partners sexual lives, but they also find better ways to communicate more effectively.
