"Intimacy requires courage because risk is inescapable." Rollo May
Many people have a problem with sex at some point in life. Unresolved troubles get under the skin and find a way of being expressed in the body and sexual life, because talking about it feels impossible. Self esteem and relationships are deeply affected and it can feel distressing trying to manage on one's own.
Psychosexual therapy is a talking therapy that aims to identify the nature of the problem, be it physical or psychological, or a combination of the two, and seeks to help individuals or couples to find clearer understanding, better functioning and more satisfying sexual lives.
Talking about sexual difficulties might feel daunting, but discovering better sexual language together about issues that may have felt too awkward previously, brings much relief. Being intimate and having intimacy in relationships requires a vulnerability that can feel overwhelming at times. Psychosexual therapy offers an invitation to your own courageness to engage with that vulnerability in the safe keeping of a therepeutic environment. For after all, courage by definition is to "speak one's mind by telling all one's heart".
Whatever your sexual orientation, psychosexual therapy provides an opportunity to explore honestly why there are problems and what the insecurities might stem from.
Psychosexual therapy offers a way to work through difficulties. It is a structured programe that is worked with creatively to suit each couple, to take the immediate focus away from sexual goals and instead, rediscover tenderness. It is designed to reduce anxieties about getting things right or wrong, and instead, to tune in to yourself and your partner to what feels good for each of you.
