Don’t suffer in silence with erection problems, premature ejaculation or any other male related sexual problem. As an experienced and compassionate therapist, trained in all aspects of men’s sexual health, I can help you discover the causes and successfully deal with them.
Failure to achieve an erection or maintain one during sex is a common male problem, particularly amongst older men. Studies have shown that up to one half of men between the age of 40 and 70 may experience this dysfunction to some degree.
Erectile failure can be due to an underlying physical condition, or may have psychological triggers. If a man never has an erection, then this suggests a physical dimension. However, more frequently, it is maintaining an erection that is the issue. In this circumstance, well-practised therapy can achieve a positive outcome.
Premature ejaculation is another common condition, when a man reaches orgasm during sex, before he feels he is ‘ready’. Although this may happen to many sexually active man from time to time, if the problem occurs regularly, then it can affect relationships and self-esteem.
A trained therapist can introduce a variety of successful self-help techniques for treating premature ejaculation. These can be adopted according to individual circumstances and then practised by the man in order to discover the most beneficial.
This is when a man is able to ejaculate during sexual intercourse, but chooses not to. Often someone who makes this choice, does not understand why and – perhaps due to anxiety or guilt – may be reluctant to discuss the problem with a partner or friend. All too often, the issue is left untreated and relationships suffer.
Therapy for withheld ejaculation, delivered by an experienced practitioner can provide a real alternative to anyone experiencing this troubling condition. Making this choice, enables the man to move forward with an independent third-party who understands the problem and has the skills to address it openly and effectively.
The man can sustain an erection prior to penetration, but then subsequently loses it, just before or during intercourse. For men affected by this frustrating problem, there are possible psychological triggers that can be explored during therapy. A frequent factor is some kind of anxiety or stress surrounding sexual performance. This anxiety can be compounded by the loss of erection, and so the problem spirals. There are a variety of techniques, both physical and mental, that can provide an effective treatment for penetration anxiety. Within a committed relationship, the focus should always be on improving communication, trust and understanding between the man and his partner.
This problem may be self-explanatory, but the causes can be complex. Sometimes a man may not be able to orgasm at all, suggesting an underlying physical condition. More often, he can achieve orgasm through masturbation but not through sex with a partner. Psycho-sexual therapy can be beneficial for someone who is unable to ejaculate during sex. Therapy begins with a detailed but sensitive assessment of the man’s sexual history in order to establish the possible causes. Appropriate treatment can then be discussed and undertaken.
Erectile pain is a discomfort or tenderness in the penis, experienced during an erection. The erection may not be sexually stimulated, and may not subside following ejaculation. Left untreated, erectile pain can become a source of considerable anxiety as well as physical discomfort. Priapism is a persistent unwanted erection that lasts for several hours or more. This condition is more serious and should be treated as an emergency. Please seek immediate medical assistance.
