Sex therapy in Cambridge
Both men and women can experience a variety of sexual issues that might affect their ability to enjoy sex. Having such issues can have a significant negative impact on the quality and closeness someone feels within a relationship.
Sexual issues men commonly talk to me about are:
- premature ejaculation
- loss of erections
- delayed ejaculation.
Common difficulties with sex that women talk to me about are:
- loss of libido
- difficulty with orgasm
- pain during intercourse.
It is important to realise that some sexual difficulties have an underlying medical component. This could mean that a trip to your GP or sexual health clinic might be needed to rule out certain medical issues at a relevant point. It is also important to note that prescription medications like SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors), used for the treatment of depression, can have an influence on the sexual function of both men and women, and so these issues will need to be thought about. However, where there is no underlying medical concern or reason for sexual function difficulties, a psychotherapeutic approach such as the talking therapy that I use in my practice can bring about extremely good outcomes for psychologically based sexual issues.
Coming to talk to a stranger about your sexual issues will, for most people (when they are honest about it), initially feel a little odd or anxiety producing. This is quite usual. Although, in the UK, sex seems to be all around us – films, television, Internet – we still don't have many honest conversations about it. As a professional therapist working in the field of sex therapy, I’ll do my best to make you feel comfortable when you come for your sessions. There are no 'off limits' areas in what you can talk to me about. I will treat you with professional respect and do my best to facilitate the least stressful way of working we can find, together.For a short informal conversation about working with me, or to book an appointment for yourself or as a couple, call me confidentially
