Sex Therapy or Psychosexual Therapy

07415 735790

Sexual problems can often be embarrassing and difficult for people to talk about and there are many people who experience sexual problems at some point in their lives.

These problems may be due to a lack of confidence; something not working as you would want it to, because of an illness, or maybe after having children or you may have become surprised at a difficulty arising due to the ageing process.

In my clinic in Hove with my help and experience of counselling individuals and couples you will have the opportunity to discuss how the sexual problems started, what might be affecting your sex life now and working out what you would like to be different.

Sex therapy or sometimes called psychosexual therapy may be helpful in dealing with difficulties with orgasm, pain during intercourse, low sex drive, difficulty in controlling ejaculation or problems with erection.

Medical conditions and treatments can affect sexual desire and satisfaction, and it will be part of the assessment process to ascertain if this may be the case.
