Why Sex Therapy?

Sexual dysfunction and problems with our genitals can cause a huge amount of distress, shame, anxiety, and embarrassment. It can also be a really sensitive topic to discuss, especially with a stranger. For people who want to have a sexual relationship, sexual intimacy is key to developing and maintaining these intimate relationships.

Sex therapy helps both by easing the distress and directly working with the sexual problem.


What to Expect From Sex Therapy

Sex therapy directly addresses sexual problems through talk therapy. This usually begins with an initial assessment session, leading to detailed feedback and then on to an individually tailored treatment plan. This will include exploring the emotional and psychological aspects of the particular sexual problem over a number of sessions. It will also include exercises to practice regularly at home between sessions, much as you would with physiotherapy exercises.
