Sexual Health Advice

Sexual Health Advice

A sex therapist helps people with sexual problems.

Sex therapists are qualified counselors, doctors or healthcare professionals who have done extra training in helping people with problems relating to intimacy.

Why do people have this therapy?

Lots of people have a problem with intimacy issues at some point in their life. Some people can help themselves. For others, sexual problems can cause a lot of distress and unhappiness.

A  therapist can help people with various sexual problems, including:

  • lack of desire
  • difficulty having an orgasm
  • pain during intercourse or inability to have penetrative sex
  • difficulty getting or keeping an erection (erectile dysfunction)
  • premature ejaculation or other ejaculation problem

What happens in a therapy session?

The therapist will listen to you describe your problems and assess whether the cause is likely to be psychological, physical or a combination of the two.

Each therapy session is confidential. You can see a therapist by yourself, but if your problem affects your partner as well, it may be better for you both to attend.

Talking about and exploring your experiences will help you get a better understanding of what is happening and the reasons. The therapist may also give you exercises and tasks to do with your partner in your own time.
