Sexual Concerns

We understand that it can be difficult to talk about sexual concerns. It is quite usual for the issue of sex to bring up strong feelings that make speaking about sexual difficulties challenging. We know that you will need privacy, confidentiality and an experienced counsellor / psychotherapist so that you will feel relaxed and able to talk through your sexual concern.  

Sexual problems and concerns can be due to physical factors but also to psychological or a combination of these. Sexual problems may occur at a specific time in life or in response to a specific situation, such as stress, anxiety or depression. There are a wide number of sexual problems which inhibit sexual relations and they can be seen as falling into four categories:

Desire disorders - where there is a concern about an apparent absence of desire or interest in sex

Arousal disorders - concerns and issues around becoming and remaining aroused

Orgasm disorders - difficulties in achieving or delaying orgasm 

Pain disorders - discomfort and pain experienced during sex

We always ask whether you have sought medical advice before seeking counselling and psychotherapy and here are a list of the concerns people bring for counselling and psychotherapy:
