Most couples go through periods where sex is more or less frequent but sometimes it can be difficult to get the physical intimacy back, particularly if there has been an emotional impact on the couple relationship.
Sex Therapy or Psychosexual Therapy (PST) as it is also known, is a therapeutic service that delivers a carefully planned treatment programme to help adult couples and individuals, of any sexual orientation, with specific sexual concerns.
Couples may present with one or more issues, such as:
- Loss of desire
- Erectile dysfunction
- Premature ejaculation
- Painful Intercourse
- Delayed orgasm
- Male and female orgasmic disorder
- Adult survivors of sexual abuse
- General dissatisfaction
Using therapy based on a cognitive behavioural approach, Sex Therapy is much more directive than some counselling services. Depending on the main areas of concern, most therapy begins with an assessment phase, followed by a bespoke treatment plan designed specifically to meet the needs of the clients.
Psychosexual Therapists are not trained to make a medical diagnosis and therefore clients are encouraged to see their GP if they have any concerns regarding their physical functions. However, therapists regularly work with couples coping with underlying medical conditions that impact on sexual functioning. This could include urological issues, cancers, menopause or simply the side effects of on-going medication.
As with some other therapies, Sex Therapy is not currently regulated in the UK. Qualified clinicians should be a member of a professional association and adhering to their code of ethics.
At present, the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT) is the UK's leading organisation for therapists specialising in sexual and relationship issues.
