Sexual Issues & Counselling


The World Health Organisation (WHO) defines sexuality as ‘A central aspect of being human throughout life and encompasses sex, gender identities and roles, sexual orientation, eroticism, pleasure and intimacy and reproduction. Sexuality is experienced and expressed in thoughts, fantasies, desires, beliefs, attitudes, values, behaviours, practices, roles and relationships.’

While sexuality embraces a wide range of emotions, thoughts and behaviours – and is often sensitive and very personal in nature – many issues are more common than you may think.

Many clients come to us seeking help in relation to problems regarding difficulties with intimacy, orgasm, impotence, low sexual desire or pain during sex. Others need help with overcoming negative sexual experiences in the past or help with matters around sexual identity or how they might help a young person struggling with gender issues.

At Psychological Health Care, our aim is to support clients to develop healthy sexual relationships and to feel positive about their sexuality. Our psychologists are very experienced in dealing with these sensitive topics and will provide you with a professional, safe and comfortable environment to help you explore what is normally regarded as a difficult subject.
