Many people find it difficult to talk about sexual issues, but most will experience some type of sexual issue in their lives. Sex therapy is a type of therapy that focuses on helping individuals and couples address sexual problems or concerns. It is a form of talk therapy that involves discussing sexual issues in a safe and non-judgmental environment.

The goal of sex therapy is to help individuals and couples overcome their sexual difficulties, improve their sexual functioning, and enhance their overall sexual and relational satisfaction. 


As a psychosexual therapist I can help with:

  • Sex aversion

  • Erectile dysfunction

  • Premature ejaculation

  • Delayed ejaculation

  • Sexual trauma

  • Sexual shame

  • Chemsex

  • Kinks and fetish

  • Out of control sexual behaviour

  • Compulsive sexual behaviour 

  • Pornagraphic compulsive behaviour

  • Performance anxiety

  • HIV diagnosis

  • Virginity in later life

  • Sexual health issues

  • Sexual orientation insecurities including the ACE spectrum

  • Transitioning insecurities

My approach considers all biological/social/cultural aspects of your lives and how these intersect and impact your sexuality. Biological, social, and cultural factors can all have a significant impact on a person's sexuality. 

Biological factors: Biological factors such as genetics, hormones, and physical health can impact a person's sexuality. For example, hormonal imbalances or chronic health conditions may affect sexual desire, arousal, or performance. 

Social factors: Social factors such as family and peer relationships, education, and media exposure can shape a person's attitudes and behaviours related to sexuality. For instance, growing up in a conservative household may lead to more conservative sexual attitudes and practices, while exposure to sexually explicit media may lead to more permissive attitudes.

Cultural factors: Cultural factors such as religion, ethnicity, and nationality can also impact sexuality. Different cultures may have different beliefs and values around sexual behaviour, gender roles, and sexual orientation, which can affect a person's attitudes and behaviours. For example, some cultures may place a greater emphasis on sexual modesty, while others may be more permissive.

I do not work with a sex addiction model, instead I work with a sexual compulsivity framework.

The term "sex addiction" has been used to describe a range of problematic sexual behaviours, including excessive pornography use, frequent anonymous sex, and compulsive masturbation. However, there is debate among professionals about whether compulsive sexual behaviour should be considered an addiction, as it does not involve the same neurochemical processes that occur in substance addiction.

I prefer to use the term "sexual compulsivity" it is often used to describe a pattern of sexual behaviour that is characterised by a lack of control and significant distress. I use a non shaming/pathologising approach that gets to the route of the behaviour when working with this client group.
