Psychosexual & Relationship Therapy

As part of my commitment to support the right of the expression of a healthy and holistic sexual life style, I have also trained as a Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy.


What is Psychosexual Therapy?


People usually seek psychosexual therapy when they experience concerns of sexual nature. These could be change in sexual well-being or in some aspect of physical sexual function which is causing the individual or couple difficulty in sexual expression, distress or unwanted sexual avoidance.

While this concerns or difficulties can occur at any time in our lives, changes to our sexual well-being increase in frequency as we get older.
Issues brought to psychosexual and relationship therapy will include the exploration of general or specific sexual problems and the impact of past experiences on the client’s current concerns. The intention is to integrate sexual/relationship issues rather than treating these as separate.

Psychosexual therapy may be particularly helpful when individuals or couples have sexual difficulties that cause distress and they would like professional support to help them to overcome / resolve or manage such difficulties.

With empathy, care and compassion I will address the way in which this difficulties affects the client’s concept of sexuality and relationship(or absence of these) in their lives.

Below is a list of some of the more common reasons adults choose to see a psychosexual therapist:

-
Low sexual interest or significant differences in sexual desire between partners that causes distress to the individual or couple
-
Difficulty in becoming / feeling sexually aroused
-
Difficulty in getting or maintaining an erection (men)
-
Difficulty in achieving climax or orgasm
-
Difficulty in controlling ejaculation (rapid ejaculation)

-
Sexual difficulties associated with childbirth


What is Couple Therapy

Couple therapy is a type of psychotherapy in which a therapist with clinical experience working with couples, helps two people involved in a romantic relationship gain insight into their relationship, resolve conflict and improve relationship satisfaction utilising a variety of therapeutic interventions. Although the practice of couple therapy may vary depending on the therapist’s theoretical orientation, all couples therapy tends to involve the following general elements:

A focus on a specific problem (i.e. sexual difficulties, Internet addiction, jealousy)
Active participation on the part of the therapist in treating the relationship itself, rather than each individual separately.
Solution focus, change-orientated interventions early on in treatment.
A clear establishment of treatment objectives.

Below is a list of some of the more common reasons adults choose to see a couple therapist:

Marital tasks and parenting
