Psychosexual therapy allows clients to deal with sexual problems within a safe and trusting environment where they can feel free to talk freely and frankly. Able to express their sexual needs and frustrations to the counsellor without feeling judged can help clients to bring worries and concerns into the open so that their relationship with their partner is repaired.

Treating individuals or couples

Psychosexual therapy can be used to treat individuals and couples of any sexual orientation. You don’t have to be involved in a relationship and treatment can be equally successful if you attend alone. To begin with, opening up and discussing your innermost feelings and beliefs with a counsellor can be difficult but as trust develops between you, embarrassment will lessen and your overall emotional and physical health will recover.

Psychosexual therapy can assist with many problems including:

  • Relationship breakdowns or difficulties
  • Fear of intimacy
  • Sexual fears due to previous abuse
  • Poor body image impacting upon your ability to have sex
  • Lack of desire
  • Pain during sex
  • Problems attaining orgasm
  • Premature ejaculation

No physical contact required

As the issues being discussed are very personal and private, your counsellor will make you feel comfortable and able to talk about even the most intimate of issues. Psychosexual therapy is a process that will help you to overcome your sexual problems without the need for any physical contact or examination.
