Anorgasmia, or difficulty reaching orgasm, is a devastating condition that causes pain and frustration for many people. As with anything to do with sexuality, anorgasmia can involve a tangle of fears, aversions and complex emotional issues, often of very obscure origin. Unfortunately, people with anorgasmia often feel too ashamed to talk about it. But it’s important to address any sexual disorder, sex phobia, or anxiety for the sake of your wellbeing, and for the sake of your intimate relationships.

The therapists at Bayside Psychotherapy have experience treating both men and women with anorgasmia, and other sexual problems. Working with our practitioners gives you access to a wide array of counselling methods, including NLP, hypnotherapy, Buddhist psychotherapy, dream interpretation, mindfulness therapy, among others.

Let’s work together to help you overcome your inability to climax.

How serious is anorgasmia?

Worrying about not being able to have an orgasm can ruin the entire sexual experience and, ironically, make it even less likely that you’ll be able to achieve one. People with this problem may start avoiding relationships or physical intimacy, leaving them feeling isolated and unloved. Anxiety, depression, and poor self esteem are also potential consequences.

Not only that, but anorgasmia may be an outward manifestation of serious buried issues that could do further damage if left untreated. Whether it’s connected to sexual trauma in your past, a breach of intimate trust, fear of intimacy, or an aversion to sex for other reasons, anorgasmia can deeply impact your life.  Counselling may be able to help you uncover the underlying causes for the problem. At the same time, therapy can give you tools to start building a healthy attitude to sex and your own sexuality — whatever your orientation or gender identity.

Anorgasmia treatment at Bayside Psychotherapy

Your treatment at Bayside Psychotherapy will be customised to your unique circumstances based on our initial meeting together. We’ll take a detailed personal history and consult with you about your goals and preferences before putting together a program.

We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach, and may draw from a range of different techniques to address your problems. Some methodologies we may apply include psychotherapy, hypnotherapy (traditional and Ericksonian methods), NLP, dream work, Buddhist psychotherapy or group therapy. As we work to ensure you’re comfortable and progressing well, we may adjust your treatment to suit changing needs.

At all times, we offer a safe, non-judgemental environment and absolute confidentiality. We are an LGBQTI-friendly practice, and welcome clients of all sexualities and gender persuasions.

How long will it take to see results?

The road to sexual wellness varies depending on the individual. Many people who start treatment begin to feel better about themselves immediately, from the empowerment of taking action. However, sexual issues can be very delicate, with complex repressed conflicts that take time to uncover and work through. The duration — and success — of your treatment will also depend heavily on your own commitment to the process.

To enhance your therapy, we recommend you download our self hypnosis MP3 recording for anorgasmia that you can listen to in your own time.
