Overcome Sexual Phobias – Melbourne Psychotherapy Can Help

A fear of sex (erotophobia) or an intense aversion to sex can be difficult to cope with. After all, our society is very sexual so you face a constant reminder of your fears. It is also a fundamental aspect to mature, long lasting and satisfying intimate adult relationships.  Is your fear of sex or sexual anxiety impacting your ability to have a happy relationship and be happy with your life? Are preoccupations with sex fears or specific issues stopping you from having healthy relationships? Seeking treatment is vital.

Regardless of the reasons behind your difficulties around sex and whether you are a man or a woman, there are many ways to approach overcoming sexual phobias. Our qualified counsellors can help you.

Let’s work together to help you cure your sex phobia or aversion.

There are many potential causes of sexual problems including sexual abuse, sexual assault, rape, fear of intimacy, fear of losing control, shame and poor body image and self esteem.  Whether you have performance anxiety, fear of intimacy, an aversion to sex, to seeing sexual organs, or to being touched, it can impact your life and cause feelings of depression, guilt, shame and anxiety. Some people develop sexual phobia due to pain during sex, due to a previous trauma, or for reasons they can’t yet describe. Therapy can help uncover reasons and more importantly, it can help you move on to have a healthy opinion about sex.

How long will sex phobia treatment take?

The road to wellness can’t be estimated. Because no two people are the same, no two courses of treatments are going to be able to be the same, either. Your individual treatment will depend on you and on the progress you and your therapist make together.

Bayside Psychotherapy's Sex Aversion Counselling is Different.

Extensive training and expertise in various areas of sex phobia treatment allow us to customise a treatment program based on your needs. Above and beyond the experience our therapists have, we have the people skills to put you in a safe environment so that we can work through your issues at a level that makes you comfortable. We may recommend counselling, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy or psychoanalytic treatment. We don't believe in a one-size-fits-all treatment program and as time progresses, we will assess whether or not the treatment is working. We want to ensure you're comfortable and progressing toward being free from sexual aversion or phobias and can alter treatment to suit your needs.
