Talking about your sex life can be difficult or even embarrassing. But it's also one of the best ways to get through any issues.
What is Sex Therapy?
Sex Therapy can help you deal with problems in your sex life or just help you spice things up again.

What happens in Sex Therapy?
After booking an appointment, you'll come in for an initial consultation.
If you're in a relationship, it's useful if you come with your partner, as many sexual issues stem from issues present in the relationship itself.
If your counsellor thinks Sex Therapy would be useful, you'll begin to see your therapist regularly. At the end of each session, they'll give you some practical exercises to try out in the privacy of your own home.
Everything you say will be entirely confidential and your therapist will do everything they can to help you feel comfortable and relaxed. Although some people find Sex Therapy a little awkward at first, many are surprised at how effective it is.
What is the cost of Sex Therapy?
We are a charity so we charge a fee to cover the costs of our services.
The cost of an initial consultation is £50. However, we aim to support everybody who comes to us for help and can offer reduced rates if you’re unable to afford the full price.
The best way to find out if we can help you is to get in contact.
