Therapy for Sexual Issues

Posted on: 25th September 2017

Sexual Issues

Sexual issues can often make those suffering with them feel alone and embarrassed to seek help. They may not only impact romantic relations, but also familial or peer relationships. They may arise from deeper issues and inner conflict or they may contribute towards anxiety and discomfort in intimate situations.

What types of sexual issues might people experience?

  • Sexual performance problems
  • Intimacy difficulties
  • Speaking openly about or accepting your sexuality
  • Uncertainty about your sexual preferences
  • Gender reassignment consideration

What impact do sexual issues have on mental health?

Although each individual is unique, there are some common symptoms that you may feel if you are experiencing sexual issues. These may include:

  • Feeling inadequate
  • Isolation
  • Loss of desire or satisfaction
  • Conflicting sexual desires
  • Compulsive or inappropriate sexual behaviours
  • Shame
  • Anxious or depressive periods

What are the benefits of seeking help?

Therapy can be daunting in any situation, especially when considering such sensitive topics. However, verbalisation of these issues has been proven to allow clarity of thought and help replace negative feelings towards your sexuality with confidence and higher self-esteem.

How can The Blue Tree Clinic help you?

Sexual issues can render feelings of shame and embarrassment. Our team has been carefully selected to help you feel comfortable sharing such personal and sensitive information. With non-judgmental and friendly listening support, our team is dedicated to helping you overcome these feelings by assessing your individual concerns and needs in order to derive the most effective therapy course for you.

Here at The Blue Tree Clinic we have a specialised team of compassionate experts who can offer support in a number of ways.

We offer Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Cognitive Analytic Therapy, Couples Therapy, Family Therapy and even assessments from our psychiatrist to decide if medication and physical tests may be necessary.

Cognitive therapies can provide useful techniques to combat negative thought patterns as well as trying to restructure the way we think about ourselves and the world. Family-based therapists offer support in opening dialogues between family members, which could otherwise be difficult in relation to such sensitive topics of conversation.

If you believe you are suffering with any sexual or gender-related issues, everyone here at The Blue Tree Clinic would like to offer our support in helping you manage your symptoms and deal with potentially difficult realisations about yourselves.
