Counselling for Sex and Intimacy Issues

Sex, intimacy and well-being

Sex and intimacy are an important part of life.

A satisfying sexual relationship can promote self-confidence and feelings of well-being.

It is often an area that is overlooked as many people do not realise it is an important contributor to your general health.

We make it easy for you to discuss your situation…

Many people experience a degree of sexual difficulty at some stage in their life.

In some cases, embarrassment can prevent individuals or couples from seeking help and finding solutions.

Our therapists understand this and, in comfortable surroundings, make it as easy as possible to discuss what you are experiencing.

What causes sexual difficulties?

Sexual difficulties may be a symptom or a cause of a relationship in trouble. Difficulties can also relate to a behaviour which is causing distress – for example, addiction. 

Issues affecting enjoyment of sexuality may also include: general anxiety, work stress, childbirth, conflict, performance anxiety, health problems, menopause, ageing and poor body image.

We can help you with…

  • Loss of desire for partner or sex after giving birth
  • Low sexual satisfaction
  • Erectile problems
  • Premature or delayed ejaculation
  • Sex addiction and / or addiction to pornography
  • Pain during intercourse (dyspareunia)
  • Difficulty or inability to be penetrated (vaginismus)
  • Orgasm difficulties 
  • The impact of HIV and its diagnosis
