Psychosexual Psychotherapy

Psychosexual psychotherapists work with all aspects of sexuality and gender. The can be a shorter- or longer-term therapy.

Psychosexual therapists who are especially trained for this work need to know about the anatomy and physiology of sexuality, and the impact of medication, illness and surgery on sexuality. Typically psychosexual psychotherapy will help with different levels of desire or interest in sex; difficulty getting aroused, including erectile problems; difficulties with orgasm or ejaculation; and pain associated with sex.
