Therapy for Sexually Related Problems

Therapy is often used by psychoanalysts to help with a whole range of sexually related problems. There are many treatments that can help with commonly experienced conditions so if you have issues of this sort, there is no need to worry.

Here are just a few of the sexually related problems that therapists can assist with:

  • Decline in desire – if this is creating problems for you within your relationship then a skilled analyst can help. They will most likely begin by finding out if you have any negative attitudes to sex and if so, help you to change your way of thinking. They will also look at your behaviour and help to address any problems with your partner.
  • Erectile dysfunction – many men have problems with erections and this can make intercourse a no-go area. The reasons for this can by psychological or physical. Performance anxiety can also play a part. Therapy will deal with all of this, relieving any anxiety and identifying any physical issues so that medication and treatment can be prescribed.
  • Premature ejaculation – If this is causing you problems and emotional distress, a therapist can help by using behavioural training. Your partner will be involved and a remedy will be found.
  • Painful intercourse – dyspareunia may often be due to a physical problem. If your therapist identifies this, then a urologist for men or gynaecologist for women will be able to help. Therapy will mainly involve the use of relaxation techniques.
