LET'S TALK ABOUT SEX
So what is Psychosexual Therapy?
Or maybe a better question to ask is whether your sex life is a cause of distress or pain?
Psychosexual or Sex therapy, is a talking therapy which looks to address specific issues related to sex & sexuality.
This therapy is designed to look at the psychological, emotional or social issues that may be causing sexual difficulties; or what is commonly known as a sexual dysfunction.
A sexual dysfunction doesn't mean anything is wrong with you, it simply means that sex is causing distress or concerns for either you or your partner.
Psychosexual therapy offers a safe and supportive environment to explore these issues; offering self-help techniques, practical exercises (to be done at home), sexual education and other tools that help move you towards more satisfying sexual experiences.
Human sexuality is complicated and sometimes our bodies don't always do what we would like them to. There are many reasons for this, but Psychosexual therapy can help identify the psychological, emotional factors at play and provide a supportive space in which these can be understood & addressed.
Below is a list of common Psychosexual issues which I have experience working with:
PAINFUL INTERCOURSE (DYSPAREUNIA)

I have 5 years clinical experience working with the above presentations.The first few sessions will be a consultation to assess the presenting issues and get to know you and your history.
I work with people from all backgrounds & sexual orientations and am LGBTQ friendly.
