Sexual anxiety can affect anyone, by Saidat Khan >

Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy

Here are just a few symptoms related to men: 

  • Not able to keep an erection
  • Premature Ejaculation (orgasm too soon)
  • Delayed or unable to Ejaculate
  • Inhibited sexual desire
  • sexual compulsive behaviour-sex addiction

Here are just a few symptoms related to women:

  • loss of sexual desire
  • Not able to achieve orgasm
  • Inhibited sexual desire
  • Vaginismus—an unconscious spasm, or tightening of the muscles around the vagina stopping penetration.
  • Dyspareunia-experiencing pain during sexual intercourse
  • sexual compulsive behaviour-sex addiction

Some people live with long term sexual problems, and are often too ashamed and embarrassed to discuss their concerns – not even with their partner. This can take a toll on their sex life, relationship and well-being.

Who can benefit from psychosexual therapy?

Psychosexual therapy can help individuals of all ages and sexual orientation. If you are single and not actively having sex, you can still benefit from seeing a sex therapist if something is troubling you.

If you are in a relationship, cohabiting or living separately, you can receive treatment together but you can also come on your own.

However, it is considered more effective if sessions are attended together as a couple. This is because the sexual problem will typically impact both partners equally – even if they are only physically affecting one individual.

Treatment

“A personal growth programme for you as an individual or as a couple that will help you become more familiar with your body and your sexual responses. This may involve a series of exercises to be practiced at home that include: (sensual touching techniques).

These exercises are strategies to overcome difficulties and are particularly beneficial to couples wanting to learn more about each other sexually.

I will also help you address conflict and communication barriers as part of a therapeutic programme if your problems are relational only and non-sexual. ”
