Sexual Issues

A satisfying sex life can be key to good intimate relationships and personal happiness.

Experiencing difficulties around sexual desire and performance can create anxiety and stress which can exacerbate symptoms. This can prove very challenging and isolating, as it is often considered not the ‘done thing’ to discuss these problems with others.

Whether you’re finding it difficult to become aroused, have erectile issues, or if health issues, a growing family or the menopause are making it difficult to adapt, if you are overly preoccupied with sex, need support around gender, or if you are experiencing any other issues around your sexual expression, it’s important to remember that it is a very positive step to talk about it with a professional therapist.

What are Sexual Issues?

Our sexual wellbeing can be affected by many factors – stress, health, social conditioning and medication/substance use to name but a few.

Experiencing sexual issues can profoundly affect our confidence and self-esteem, and create problems in our closest relationships.

The stress and anxiety which can accompany sexual issues can lead to angry outbursts and depression, isolation and conflict, and feelings of despair.


How can Solution Focused Hypnotherapy help with Sexual Issues?

The AfSFH recommends that you see your GP to discuss medical sexual issues. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help with sexual issues by offering you a safe, confidential space to talk about problems and explore your best hopes for a more fulfilled life moving forward.

Hypnotherapy can help by lowering stress and anxiety levels and building confidence, which are often at the root of many sexual issues. This can enable you to feel more in control of your sexual desire and expression.

In addition to this, better understanding the psychological and physiological processes involved in sexual arousal can empower you to feel more in control of your sexual wellbeing.

Hypnotherapy can also increase production of the body’s own ’feelgood’ hormones, which can increase our capacity for sexual desire.
