Creating a better sex life

Sex therapy, or psychosexual therapy as it’s formally known today, is a specialist form of therapy that can help individuals and couples tackle sexual difficulties, including the absence of sex where one or both partners would like sex to be part of the relationship.

You may want to have sex therapy alone, or with your partner, for any issue you feel is related to your sex life, including:

  • Lack of desire, or struggling with arousal
  • Difficulties getting or maintaining an erection
  • Pain during sex
  • Difficulties ejaculating or ejaculating too quickly
  • Differences over how much, or the type of sex, you both want
  • Use of internet porn or cybersex
  • Confusion about sexuality or gender identity
  • Illness or disability which impacts your sex life.

Your therapist will take time and great care to fully understand the difficulties you are facing and think with you about how these have come about, and what should be done to improve things. Treatment will include the setting of exercises for you to do at home which will work in harmony with the talking you do in your therapy session to bring about real change.
