How to help




An active sex life is an enjoyable and important element of a healthy relationship. However, many people encounter sexual problems at some point in their lives.

There are lots of physical and emotional reasons why this can happen, such as stress, tiredness, illness, family and work pressures, even a new baby. Lots of people find these sexual problems don’t last long. Where a problem does last, Relate can help.

Who is it for?

Relate offers psychosexual therapy to individuals and couples of all sexualities and genders. We can help where people have stopped having sex due to physical or emotional reasons. Relate sex therapists see lots of people with sexual difficulties like:

bullet loss of desire
bullet erectile dysfunction
bullet premature ejaculation
bullet pain on intercourse
bullet having difficulty reaching orgasm

What happens?

Firstly you meet with a sex therapist who will explore with you what you want to achieve or change in your sexual relationship and what the reasons behind this might be. The therapist will talk with you about the best way forward in your circumstances.

If Relate can help, you’ll have regular hourly sessions with your sex therapist and be given a programme of exercises to do at home (you will never be asked to undertake any sexual tasks during a session).

93 per cent of the people we see tell us that we help them make their sexual relationships significantly better.
