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.
