What is psychosexual therapy?
Psychosexual therapy is a psychological treatment which aims to restore sexual function and resolve any relationship difficulties that may have developed. The therapy relies on a collaborative approach where the patient and therapist work together to identify and understand problems in the relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
Specialist treatments are provided for:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Premature or other ejaculatory disorders
- Orgasmic difficulties
- Genito-pelvic pain/penetration disorder (vaginismus and dyspareunia –
- pain at the commencement of, during or after intercourse)
- Problems of libido (reduced or excessive sex drive/interest)
- Sexual arousal problems
- Specific sexual aversions or phobias
Appointments are available Monday – Friday between the hours of 8am and 5pm.
We currently offer a blended model of remote consultations and face to face appointments. Patients have a choice over which kind of appointment they would prefer and have a choice between female and male therapists
