Psychosexual Counselling

For many people, a sexual relationship is the most fulfilling, exciting and intimate encounter they have with another person. If however, the sexual relationship is not going so well, then the feelings and pleasures of giving and receiving sexual enjoyment very often becomes a source of conflict, distress and sadness.

The process of Psychosexual Counselling will help you to discover the source of the problem, gain insight and develop techniques for overcoming your sexual difficulties.

It may be a problem you’ve had for a long time or it might be something that’s developed after a previously good sex life. You may know exactly what has caused your particular problem – or like many, you may be mystified.

There are many reasons why the sexual relationship between a couple can breakdown:

  • Anger and Resentment
  • Anxiety
  • Lack of desire and libido
  • Past unpleasant experiences
  • Impotence
  • Stress
  • Vaginismus
  • Illness
  • Premature ejaculation
  • Change in body image
  • Retarded ejaculation
  • Sex Addiction
  • Not prioritising intimate time
  • Addiction to the Internet
  • Not communicating your true feelings
  • Sexuality
  • Boredom
  • Trauma in childhood
  • Arrival of children

Nightingale Psychosexual Counsellors will immediately put you at ease. Talking about such an intimate part of your life, can feel awkward or embarrassing. Please be assured the Psychosexual Counsellors are experienced and have received extensive training and qualified with Relationship Scotland and will have a diploma in psychosexual counselling.

Online Counselling

Providing you with the tools you need to take the next step.

Technology is rapidly changing the ways we can interact with each other, and counselling is no exception. This
service can be provided upon request. For the below options you will need broadband/internet connection and
somewhere quiet and private you can speak without being overheard or interrupted. Your Counsellor will agree with
you what happens should the technology fail, but in all other respects the counselling relationship will be the same
as a ‘face to face’ one. The Counsellor will speak to you from a private room ...

Phone Counselling

The service will connect you with the counsellor on your mobile phone. Sessions for telephone counselling are between 30 minutes to an hour.
