Treating Sexual Issues Through Online Therapy
It is not uncommon for both men and women to have moments in their lives where they experience sexual dysfunction. The dysfunction can occur at any time, and often prevents the individual or couple from experiencing a fulfilling level of sexual satisfaction.
While sexual dysfunction is more commonly associated with men, it is most commonly reported by women. In studies researchers have determined that approximately 43% of women and 31% of men report some types of sexual dysfunction during their lifetime. It can occur in individuals of any age, but it is more common in people aged 40 and over.
In some cases the cause of the sexual issue can be identified; stress, illness, anxiety, preoccupation or any number of other factors can lead to a lack of sexual arousal or sexual stimulation for both men and women. These types of issues typically resolve themselves when the underlying cause of the issue is no longer present.
Some individuals may have sexual issues in one or more areas. These can include dysfunction during desire, arousal, orgasm, or pain during sex. Both physical and psychological issues can cause sexual dysfunction, and it is not uncommon to experience both.
Before seeking therapy for sexual issues, medical reasons for the dysfunction should be considered. Problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, hormonal imbalances and drug or alcohol abuse are all medical factors that can contribute to sexual dysfunction. Specific types of medication, including many used in the treatment of anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder and neurological conditions can also create a lack of desire, arousal, or the ability to be sexually satisfied.
Online Therapy for Privacy & Confidentiality
Discussing sexual dysfunction is a very intimate and personal conversation. It can be difficult for people to come into a therapy practice and talk about this issue, even with the knowledge that the sessions are confidential and private.
At Mayfair Online Therapy we offer the option of meeting with clients via Skype, providing the highest level of privacy and confidentiality possible. We do not record any online therapy sessions without the specific consent of the client, giving them the ability to manage sessions to their level of comfort.
Through exploration and insight, therapists assist clients in addressing the underlying psychological problems of a dysfunction. These issues can include anxiety, depression, trauma, past abuse, or an individual's level of self-esteem.
Online sessions start with an introductory phone call with the therapist or counsellor. This initial conversation allows the therapist to determine if he or she is a good match for the client, and the client is able to do the same. This meeting will address the future scheduling of sessions, as well as to ensuring the client understands the confidentiality and privacy of all sessions.
As a practice accredited voluntarily through the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy, the Health Professionals Council and the British Association of Art Therapists, our staff offer the highest professional standards in providing quality online therapy.
Mayfair Online Therapy have over 20 years of experience in the field of psychotherapy, covering the treatment of a wide range of issues. We are based in Mayfair in central London, but can work with clients from across the UK and Internationally.
