What Happens In Sex Therapy?
Psychosexual Therapy can be a single or multiple appointments. The first (or only) appointment is an Initial Assessment session where your therapist will listen carefully and then discuss the physical, psychological, and social factors which are causing your problem, and how you can begin to have better experiences.
After this first meeting you will receive an Initial Assessment Report (which is a summary of the causes of your problem) and a Treatment Plan (detailing what you will do to experience better sex).
The Treatment Plan might involve physical treatments you can practice at home (alone or with a partner), medical treatments, psychological treatments, or any combination of the above.
Research tells us that many clients attend only one or two sessions of therapy in order to feel they have sufficient information to have better sexual experiences.
However, follow-up appointments are often beneficial - to further explore the problem and to start or support appropriate treatments.
At Edinburgh Psychosexual Clinic we use face-to-face, telephone, or video appointments, according to client preference.
Edinburgh Psychosexual Clinic was established in 2020 by Nicholas Malone (BSc(hons), PGcert, PGDip(merit), RegCOSRT).
We offer immediate appointments and have a pragmatic approach to sex therapy. Our aim is to provide - in the first appointment - a clear explanation of problems and a detailed treatment plan which clients can begin to use straight away.
Clients quickly obtain the information and skills required to reduce anxiety, increase confidence, and improve sexual responses.
Nicholas is a qualified Psychosexual Therapist and Addictions Counsellor who is a member of COSRT (the governing body for Sexual and Relationship Therapists). He has over 25 years' experience in the research and treatment of sexual problems and addictions /compulsivity for both the NHS and Third Sector organisations, and currently works part-time for NHS Lothian Psychosexual Service in Edinburgh.
