Psychosexual Counselling or Psychosexual Therapy is a talking therapy that helps resolve challenges and issues concerning sex. It might be a general loss of interest in sex or an obvious symptom such as premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, vaginismus, difficulty climaxing or post-surgery-related issues. Sometimes is just a more subtle dissatisfaction and not enjoying sex how you would like.
Sometimes it can be difficult to talk about issues related to sex, so it’s important that you know that you are in safe hands with Leone Centre BACP and UKCP registered Counsellors.

Who is Psychosexual Counselling for?
Psychosexual counselling is for anyone who wants to access it, whatever age, sexual orientation, gender, relationship status, cultural or religious background.
Working with a psychosexual therapist involves exploring the various physical, psychological, emotional and environmental causes that are contributing to your sexual issues.
Sexual problems are common, and the best way to deal with them is through talking.
Whether it’s via individual counselling or couples or relationship counselling, addressing sexual issues is an important part of well-being. In the instance that the root problem is psychological and emotional, by resolving the root cause, the aim is that the physical symptoms will be resolved.
What to expect
An assessment appointment is booked initially as an opportunity for you to understand how the therapist works and to ask any questions you have, as well as discuss how best to work going forward and for the therapist to understand what your needs and goals are.
You will discuss the therapeutic boundaries and contract, which lays out what you can expect from Leone Centre, your therapist and what we ask you as a client.
If you choose to continue, further sessions will be booked, either in a block of 6, for example or with an ongoing frame.
