Issues with sex starts with understanding your issues surrounding your sex life.
Sex issues can be one or several common problems:
- Low/no sex drive
- Unsure for your sexual identity
- Low enjoyment of sex
- High sex drive
- Sex Addiction
- Erectile dysfunction
- Inability to climax
- Unable to feel connected

What causes sex issues?
As with all mental health issues, having a problem within your sex life evolves from past events, thoughts, feelings and actions.
Intercourse is a rare moment in everyone’s day to day life where you need to be at your most secure and relaxed state. This can be an issue for many if you find yourself either distracted, stressed or tense.
If you are finding yourself unable to perform or find enjoyment from it, then the cause will most likely be something from your past burdening your thoughts. This can create a block to you being able to really relax.
We are all built to protect ourselves from hurt or danger. Anxiety and stress is included in that felt sense of danger. So when you find yourself trying to relax during intercourse i.e being in your most vulnerable state, you can find your mind racing rather than relaxing.

Counselling is a highly effective way to reorder and assess these thoughts and issues that have been burdening your mind.
Along with understanding how you are feeling and what needs to be resolved, you will also be able to shine a light on what your mind is attempting to protect you from.

As we go through some of the most common misconceptions about starting therapy, I want to reiterate that your therapy experience is unique to you. A guide to therapy is something that you may look for to avoid doing or saying something wrong. But that just isn’t the case. (more…)
I get asked multiple questions from people regarding what they should expect before starting therapy. Not only that, but what a therapist would expect from them. After many years I have noticed a pattern of questions, so I want to settle a lot of myths once and for all. (more…)
