Nearly all of us, at some point in our lives are likely to experience sexual problems.
As our sex life is such a “personal” and integral part of our lives we can often feel too embarrassed to seek help, instead suffering needlessly and letting it affect our self esteem and also those closest to us.
Sexual Problems are more common than people think
Sexual problems can crop up at any time, and at any age. Sexual difficulties are experienced in fairly equal proportions by both Men and Women, although men tend to “bury” the problem more and are less likely to consult for professional help.
Due to the very personal nature of our sex lives, sexual problems that are not dealt with can lead to very powerful feelings of inadequacy, shame and low self esteem.
These feelings NEVER make the problem better or more manageable; in fact, they act in such a way as to further increase the problem – a vicious circle.
We are trained to deal with very sensitive issues and you can be 100% assured that your problems will be treated with the utmost confidentiality and with “unconditional positive regard”, so do not hesitate to get in contact with us.
It is important to recognise that one person’s “pleasure” is another person’s “perversion”, there are no hard and fast rules about what is “acceptable” or “unacceptable” (We are obviously not talking about such things as Paedophilia here as they are clearly illegal preferences) so do not simply assume that what you suffer is something you could never talk about.

Therapy for Sexual Problems
We offer two principle types of therapy to help you to deal with your sexual oriented problem:
Hypnosis for Sexual Problems
In almost every case we mention above, the degree of severity can vary from a “minor irritation” all the way through to a “major disruptive factor” destroying your life.
Psychotherapy for Sexual problems
For those sexual problems that are having a more significant impact on your life we would recommend following a course of the Thrive Programme with us. Thrive can help you to understand and then change the belief systems and thinking styles that form the foundation of the external behaviour quickly and permanently.
Previous negative experiences that may by creating the unwanted behaviour today can effectively be helped by following a course of Cognitive Processing & Integration therapy. This type of therapy helps you to re-process those past experiences and then be able to re-integrate them back into your memory but in a much more useful way.
This type of therapy is best suited to those problems that might be described as “inconvenient” but not necessarily “pervasive” and normally produces quick results.
CPI normally requires a course of sessions, typically 6 – 12, during which you examine past experiences and re-process them in more useful contexts.
Thrive is typically a 6 -10 session course of cognitive training which utilises a detailed but fun workbook to help you make changes to your thinking.
