Counselling for sexual problems

Coming to therapy can benefit you in gaining information about your difficulty, a fresh perspective on your experience, greater understanding about how your body functions, as well as the possibility to work through the problem therapeutically. It?s often the case that no medical reason has been found to explain the sexual difficulty, which could certainly be psychological in origin. In these cases, exploring the meaning of your sex life and your expectations about yourself can be very helpful in moving forward with more contentment about your involvement with sex.

Sometimes, what’s initially perceived as a problem with sexual performance can actually be your body communicating with you or your natural responses to certain situations becoming apparent – this can be very reassuring and refreshing to discover this during your session. While we can?t make any promises about the outcome – because it’s your mind and your body – our sex therapists will gladly listen and offer input that may help improve your situation.

If it is the case that you might benefit from check-ups from medical practitioners, we can put you in touch with local GPs and consultants, who may be able to help diagnose and treat any physical underlying cause for your difficulty. Our counsellors are here to lend an ear and assist you in understanding and working to resolve any of the following issues you may be facing:

  • Painful periods or sexual intercourse
  • Size of penis/breasts affecting your sex life or loss of desire
  • Impact of illness, sexually transmitted infections or surgical operations
  • Effect of medication on sexual desire or functioning
  • No longer finding your partner attractive
  • Previous sexual abuse or assault or rape causing flashbacks or sexual problems
  • Problematic use of paid-for sexual services becoming problematic
  • Needing drugs or alcohol in order to have sex
  • Questioning your sexual identity or sexual orientation
  • Impact of pregnancy, termination or childbirth
  • Arrival of children affecting your sex life
  • Secret relationships, texting or social networking
  • Sexual encounters or relationships about which your partner is unaware
