An intergrated therapeutic model is applied to address significant past life events or messages, current thoughts, feelings and behaviours or contextual factors that might be impacting on general or sexual confidence or function. This includes trauma, abuse or attachment difficulties as well as illness, anxiety, fear or phobias. It will also aim to bring into the awareness unconscious processes that might be interfering with sexual response. Therapy uses the therapeutic relationship to understand and address unhelpful interactional patterns. It can help to address difficulties or concerns with sexual desire, arousal, orgasm, sexual pain, penetration, ejaculation or sexual compulsion. Alongside talking to understand and help to express and process your difficulties you may be given homework exercises and learn how to relax, use mindfulness as well as self acceptance and personal sexual growth work. The aim of the therapy would be for you to learn to overcome or manage your difficulties and take away techniques to use to address any problems recurring in future.
