Sex therapy

Sex therapy
97% of couples said that their love life had improved as a result of Relate sex therapy

Although sex should be an enjoyable part of life, we know that most people encounter sexual problems at some stage. Our trained sex therapists understand that you might feel embarrassed and will help you to talk openly. Sex therapy is appropriate whether you’re in a relationship or single.

Who is it for?
Relate sex therapy can help couples and individuals (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or straight) overcome sexual problems or specific sexual dysfunctions.

What can you expect from this service?
Once you have made an appointment with your local Relate Centre you will be seen by a sex therapist who will sensitively listen to your description of the problem and gather further information from you to ensure that any treatment suggested meets your needs. You will also talk about the best times for your sessions, and discuss the cost of sex therapy.

If at this stage sex therapy is considered appropriate, you will start to see your sex therapist on a weekly to fortnightly basis. All of the work you do in the therapy room is based on talking; however, you are also given homework to do with your partner in the privacy of your own home. Clients are amazed at the progress they make and how well they get on with their therapist, once they are over the initial nervousness at talking frankly about their sex life.
