Sex is a word that holds a lot of taboo, sex has become more openly discussed and women’s sexuality became more vocal and now discussion about polyamorous, open relationships and swinging.

Having sexual difficulties can feel very isolating. You may feel self-conscious and unable to speak up about them, whether that’s having an honest conversation with your partner or reaching out to a professional.

The truth is sexual problems are very common and the best way to tackle them is to talk about it.

If you are in a relationship or indeed single and you find that you are having problems connecting on a physical level, you may find yourselves thinking about therapy. If you are an individual that feels like you are having sexual difficulties, you also may find yourself contemplating and taking steps towards therapy, whether alone or with a partner. Therapy can help you improve your current or future relationships, overcome your sexual and physical difficulties, and help you gain a better understanding of yourself and your sexuality so that it can be a more enjoyable experience.

Sex therapists take the tools of therapy, addressing your concerns, thoughts, and feelings, and why it is inhibiting your sexuality and giving you tools to complete the goal of resolving the issue by listening to your concerns within the realm of sex, such as:

  • Concerns over intimacy
  • Concerns about sexual desire or arousal
  • Sexual anxieties
  • Sexual interests
  • Sexual orientation
  • Impulsive or compulsive sexual behaviour
