Psychosexual Therapy

There are many sexual issues and reasons why people seek sexual counselling:  according to the COSRT website, the most common reason seems to be wanting ‘just want to be normal’.

Other reasons for people seeking sexual therapy are:

  • Loss of desire/high desire
  • Orgasm difficulties
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Uncomfortable desires – e.g. fetishes
  • Pain during sexual intercourse – men and women
  • Premature ejaculation and other issues regarding ejaculation
  • Compulsions
  • Affairs
  • Use of pornography

This list is by no means exhaustive, however it covers some of the main issues.

You can visit a therapist by yourself or as a couple and the truth is that there is no ‘normal’ way to have sex and seeing a sexual therapist can help you discuss any concerns you may have regarding your sex life.
