We provide a talking therapy service but have the medical expertise to also identify physical problems.
Typical problems that we assess and treat include:
We also work with people who find their sexual problems are affecting relationships, which includes anxiety and loss of confidence in sexual performance and lack of sexual satisfaction.
Given the diversity and complexity of human sexual identity we would also assess a wide variety of other issues if considered a problem. This can include matters such as addiction to pornography and fetishism, or concerns about sexual orientation.
Our service is for anybody who is experiencing difficulty in their sexual and intimate life. We know that sexual problems can arise as a result of both physical and psychological processes and often these co-exist.
We work with all adults from 18 years and over, we can review as individuals or couples for an average of six sessions with appointments being typically 3 – 4 weeks apart. We see people from all cultural backgrounds and sexual orientation. We can book interpreters if needed.
Most attendees will have seen their GP and had initial assessment and investigations if required. Once it has been established that there is a psychological component to the problem then we will assess.
Please note that we do not assess people for Gender Identity Disorder. Those seeking advice on gender reassignment can get a referral directly into the Gender Identity Clinic hosted by Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust. However, if you are having psychosexual difficulties and have gender dysphoria or are trans we are happy to see you.
