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
Your own issue all depends on how you feel towards sex, and how it is affecting your relationships. Once you know what these feelings are, then you can start to understand where they came from and how to resolve them.
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.
How therapy can help.
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.

If the digital age has brought us anything, it has been more open communication. What I’ve seen very recently, and has blown up on social media in the mum community especially, is discussions about weaponised incompetence. When Mad Men marketing campaigns sold Hoovers and tumble dryers, you were pitched the breadwinner and the homemaker dynamic.…
Recently I made an appearance live on GB News after BACP approached me to comment on why many have been feeling a little more anxious in the build-up to Christmas. I was more than happy to comment. I believe that even though many feel as if they should get back to ‘normal’ after experiencing several…
Why don’t men talk? Men’s mental health is being brought to light, but it’s still a slow progression. As we constantly work to find real equality between genders and NB (and we still have a long way to go), what Men’s Mental Health Month can do is be a real driving force in this. And…
