Seeking help for our sexual wellbeing can be overwhelming.
We can feel embarrassed, insecure or shameful. Many of us want to know whether what we like and do in the bedroom is “normal”. What does a healthy sex life look like?
There are many reasons why we might seek help for our sexual wellbeing. There may be issues surrounding performance or a change in desire caused by difficult life circumstances, addictions or pregnancy. Anxiety is sometimes caused as a result of previously traumatic experiences. Most sexual problems are psychological (although one of the first steps in seeking help is to determine whether there are any medical issues that need to be addressed.)
Sexual health is defined by the World Health Organisation as “a state of physical, mental and social wellbeing in relation to sexuality. It requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence”.
Typical reasons for seeking help are:
• Loss of sexual desire
• Erection problems
• Painful intercourse
• Sexual Addiction
• Erectile dysfunction
• Premature ejaculation
• Sex avoidance
There are several solutions depending on the problem for which help is sought. Gavin works towards formulating a diagnosis and a treatment plan. The work can be fun, exciting and restore hope. We all deserve the opportunity to discover, explore and develop our authentic sexual selves.
