What is Psychosexual Counselling (Sex Therapy)?
Couples and Individuals come to Psychosexual Counselling with a variety of concerns. Maybe they have noticed a difference in their libidos, or lack of desire for sex. Perhaps their sexual relationship has changed after having children. Maybe there are specific issues such as Erectile Dysfunction, Anorgasmia (inability to orgasm) Premature Ejaculation, Dyspareunia (painful sex) Gender dysphoria, Sexual Orientation Confusion.
You may even have a fetish or a kink such as BDSM, D/s, Adult Baby, shoe fetish, Rubber or Latex and you are uncomfortable with such feelings. You could be involved in the swinging or dogging scene or interested in polyamory and it is causing you and or/ your partner issues.
Your problem could be fairly recent or long standing. Sometimes sexual issues can come after a previously good sex life. Your sexual confidence could be low after the end of a relationship. Maybe you are not sexually confident and need a little help and perhaps even education.
What is Relationship Therapy?
Relationships can be wonderful but when they go wrong it can be so very painful, so painful that there may not seem a way to make things better. Maybe there has been an infidelity issue or stress after having a baby. Work or financial worries can have a huge impact in your relationship. You could feel that you are going round in circles arguing over the same issues time and time again and need a bit of guidance to help make things clearer for you both. You could just be newly divorced or separated and need a bit of support to help you move forward in your life. whatever relationship worries you (both) have we can work together to find a suitable solution for you.
