What is Sex Therapy?
Sex Therapy can help you if you’re experiencing difficulties in your love life and can help you to improve physical intimacy.  It can help with many issues such as lack of desire, physical problems and difficulties caused by past relationships or experiences.

Our sex therapists see thousands of people just like you. Working with a Relate Sex Therapist will help you to work out how to handle the problems you’re having and find a way to move on from them.

What can I expect in Sex Therapy?
Once you’ve made an appointment with us, you’ll be seen by a sex therapist who will listen sensitively to your description of the problem and gather further information from you to ensure that any suggested treatment 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.
