An active sex life is an enjoyable and
important element of a healthy relationship.
However, many people encounter sexual problems
at some point in their lives.
There are lots of physical and emotional
reasons why this can happen, such as stress,
tiredness, illness, family and work pressures,
even a new baby. Lots of people find these
sexual problems don’t last long. Where a
problem does last, Relate can help.
Who is it for?
Relate offers psychosexual therapy to individuals and couples
of all sexualities and genders. We can help where people have
stopped having sex due to physical or emotional reasons.
Relate sex therapists see lots of people with sexual
loss of desire
pain on intercourse
having difficulty reaching orgasm
Firstly you meet with a sex therapist who will
explore with you what you want to achieve or
change in your sexual relationship and what the
reasons behind this might be. The therapist
will talk with you about the best way forward
in your circumstances.
If Relate can help, you’ll have regular
hourly sessions with your sex therapist and be
given a programme of exercises to do at home
(you will never be asked to undertake any
sexual tasks during a session).
