Sexual problems can affect anyone at any stage in their life, and can affect people both in relationships and those not in a relationship.
Sometimes the way people think about sex can have a negative effect on their sexual performance.
If you experience any of the following, and the cause is thought to be due to feelings or a body-mind block, SWISH Services may be able to offer you psychosexual therapy:
- Premature ejaculation or rapid ejaculation – inability to control ejaculation (“coming” too soon)
- Delayed ejaculation or absent ejaculation – difficulty in reaching ejaculation
- Erectile dysfunction (impotence) – inability to get or keep an erection
- Impaired sexual interest – no interest in sex, causing concern in the individual
- Impaired arousal – difficulty in becoming sexually aroused
- Orgasmic dysfunction or anorgasmia – finding it difficult to reach orgasm despite adequate sexual stimulation
- Dyspareunia – pain when starting or having sexual intercourse
- Vaginismus – not being able to tolerate any vaginal penetration
- Sexual problems after serious illness
- Sexual problems after bereavement
If this is a service you are interested in, please speak to your GP or to a doctor or nurse at one of our SWISH Services. Please speak to your GP or Relate if the problem is mainly with your relationship.
