Facilitating positive change every step of the way



Whether you are gay, lesbian, bisexual, heterosexual or transgender, if you are experiencing problems or difficulties in your sexual relationship, our psychosexual therapists can help you resolve them. The following are some of the problems we address: 

  • Breakdown in a couple's sexual relationship

  • Loss of sexual desire

  • Painful intercourse

  • Difficulties with orgasm

  • Arousal disorders

  • Erectile dysfunction

  • Premature or delayed ejaculation

  • Vaginismus



Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a type of talking treatment which focuses on how your cognitions, (thoughts) what you believe and your attitudes and how they affect your feelings and behaviour, and teaches you coping skills for dealing with different problems.

It combines cognitive therapy (examining the things you think) and behaviour therapy (examining the things you do).

CBT is based on the idea that the way we think about situations can affect the way we feel and behave. For example, if you perceive a situation negatively then you might experience negative emotions as a result, and those bad feelings might then lead you to behave in a certain way that promotes bad feelings. 



Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) integrates many already successful components of a range of therapeutic approaches. However, EMDR also has many unique features. EMDR is therapist lead in a series of lateral eye movements while the patient simultaneously focuses on various aspects of a disturbing memory.  The left – right eye movements in EMDR therapy are a form of “bilateral stimulation”.

EMDR therapy can treat a wide range of psychological problems that result from trauma. The goal of EMDR is to fully process past experiences and resolve the negative emotions attached to those experiences. Negative thoughts and feelings that are no longer useful are replaced with positive thoughts and feelings that will encourage healthier behaviour and social interactions.
