Sexual Problems

The likelihood that a person will approach a health professional, with a sexual problem has increased over the last few years, due to the greater level of openness in society with regard to sexual issues.

However, many patients still find difficulty with discussing sexual problems. If the patient senses any discomfort on the part of the healthcare professional they may not be able to discuss such a sensitive issue.

Healthcare professionals may also be reluctant to pursue sexual issues because they are uncomfortable with the topic, or because they do not feel sufficiently knowledgeable or skilled to address issues that may be raised by the patient.

Effective help, therefore, depends on providing a comfortable, open and confident environment, for the patient to discuss their difficulties and the most appropriate course of management.

Sexual problems vary in severity and complexity, and while some may be minor and temporary. Often linked to more recent experiences that have caused stress. Other sexual problems will have been around for some time.

Individuals living with long-term sexual problems are often too ashamed and embarrassed to discuss their concerns with anyone -not even their partner -and this can take a toll on their sex life, relationships and well-being.

Some of the issues I will be able to help with include:

  • Loss of sexual desire
  • Problematic sexuality among married and other couples
  • Sexual difficulties following abuse
  • General breakdown in a couple’s relationship
  • Fear of sex and sex avoidance
  • Poor body image relating to intimacy.

Sexual Health recognises that even the most perfect relationships need support and help from time to time, and therefore sex therapy, relationship or marriage counselling is also offered for couples or individuals who would like to work on:
