Psychosexual Psychotherapy 

Psychosexual therapy is a specialised form of counselling focused on sex, sexuality and intimate relationships. One of its key benefits lies in its ability to provide a safe and non-judgemental space for clients to explore and express their sexual concerns, fostering open communication and trust. It can also support individuals in overcoming sexual dysfunctions, such as erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation or vaginismus, by identifying underlying psychological factors and implementing targeted interventions. Additionally, psychosexual therapy is instrumental in addressing relationship issues stemming from sexual dissatisfaction, facilitating a deeper understanding between partners and enhancing overall relationship satisfaction. By promoting an embodied and positive view of sexuality, this therapy empowers individuals to embrace their sexual identities and fosters an improved sense of self-esteem and confidence. Overall, psychosexual therapy can play a crucial role in promoting sexual well-being, enhancing intimate relationships, and contributing to mental and emotional health.

Often, people spend months, or even years, grappling with fear or shame in relation to their sexual challenges, leaving them feeling isolated and stuck. Contrary to common assumptions, it's important to realise that sexual difficulties are widespread and can stem from various factors. Psychosexual therapy helps in understanding and working with these factors, delving into the biological, psychological, and societal contributors that shape a persons' experiences. Psychosexual therapy offers a comprehensive approach, covering a broad spectrum of concerns related to sex, sexuality, and relationships, 

Issues that Psychosexual therapy works with include

• Anorgasmia: The inability to achieve orgasm

• Delayed ejaculation: Inability to ejaculate, or delay in achieving ejaculation during sexual activity

• Dyspareunia: Pain during sexual intercourse

• Erectile Dysfunction: Inability to gain and maintain an erection

• Change or lack of sexual, physical, and emotional intimacy

• Loss of libido

• Premature ejaculation

​• Sexual violence or trauma including rape, sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse

• Vaginismus: When the muscles around the vagina tighten in response to penetration or attempted penetration
