All About Sexual Problems & How To Overcome them with CBT, Therapy & Counselling in Wolverhampton & West Midlands
What are Sexual Problems?
Sexual Problems are much more common than people think and can crop up at any time, and at any age.
Nearly all of us, at some point in our lives are likely to experience sexual problems of one sort or another.
They can be very difficult to talk to somebody about, so we would like to assure you that we will deal with you with respect and understanding.
As our sex life is such a “personal” and integral part of our lives we can often feel too embarrassed to seek help, instead suffering needlessly and letting it affect our self esteem and also those closest to us.
Sexual problems are experienced in fairly equal proportions by both Men and Women, although men tend to deny the existence of the problem and are much less likely to consult for professional help.
Due to the very personal nature of our sex lives, sexual problems that are not dealt with can lead to very powerful feelings of inadequacy, shame and low self esteem.
These feelings NEVER make the problem better or more manageable; in fact, they act in such a way as to further increase the problem creating a vicious circle.
It is important to recognise that one person’s pleasure is another person’s perversion, there are no hard and fast rules about what is acceptable or unacceptable (We are obviously not talking about such things as Paedophilia here as they are clearly illegal preferences) so do not simply assume that your particular issue is beyond help or beyond understanding.
