Sex therapy seeks to resolve sexual difficulties either in the individual or the couple. Although sex therapy is a talking treatment it may be necessary first of all to resolve any underlying medical problems and this can be achieved with the help of the patients general practitioner.

Sex therapy is broadly concerned with three main areas;

• Homework assignments based on Masters and Johnson’s sensate focus approach.

• Removing “blocks” to sexualness.

• Education, which means dealing myths, misunderstandings and new information about normal sexual functioning and what can be expected from our bodies. Sex therapy, in a nutshell, has the ability to powerfully enhance the understanding of our sexual self and our sexual relationships by working through sexual difficulties in a non-judgemental, supportive and structured way, guided by a trained and competent sex therapist.
