About me

Dr Wafaa has been leading the Psychosexual Clinic at her NHS trust for the past 11 years, consulting with clients (individuals and couples) from diverse backgrounds with a variety of problems in their sexual and general relationships.

She integrates clinical experience with evidence-based approaches in the field of psychosexual medicine and relationship therapy to help clients achieve their goal of a healthy relationship.

As a medical doctor and gynaecologist, she is able to clinically examine and treat associated medical problems that may be contributing to sexual problems. Often, unlocking the key to relationship success can be as simple as addressing neglected medical needs.

She is an expert in vaginismus (difficulty in penetration), dyspareunia (painful sex), and offers treatment of the following problems:

  • Relationship and communication problems
  • Erection difficulties
  • Ejaculation concerns
  • Orgasm problems
  • Loss of sexual desire
  • Sex anxiety, including non-consummation
  • Sexual abuse trauma and domestic violence
  • Trauma

She counsels in English and Arabic

Areas of Practice

Orgasm Problems

Many men and women may experience difficulty in achieving orgasm. Not everyone wants or needs orgasm for a healthy sex life, but if it is a source of anxiety in a relationship then this can be addressed through couples' or individual therapy.

Erectile Problems

Difficulty in achieving and keeping an erection can make penetration difficult, sometimes impossible. This can cause immense upset and relationship problems as feelings of blame and stress compound.

Occasionally, there are medical reasons which need to be ruled out first. Often, sex therapy can rapidly help in situations where the root causes are anxiety or psychological.

Vaginismus

Some women may struggle to achieve full penetrative sex. This problem can extend to difficulty in using tampons, contraceptive devices and having smear tests. This can be very distressing for both the client and their partner.

Ejaculation Problems

These can include premature ejaculation (PE), delayed ejaculation, and inhibited ejaculation. Again, ruling out medical conditions, or medications, that may be causing these is an essential first step. Psychological support and behavioural techniques can often help improve the situation.

Painful Sex

Dyspareunia (painful sex) can affect both men and women. This is especially common in women when they are not fully engaged and aroused during penetration. There may be medical conditions such as endometriosis, pelvic infections, childbirth trauma and some skin conditions which cause this.

Lack of Desire

Lack of sexual desire can be a result of significant events such as traumatic childbirth, bereavement, medical illness, unemployment, and stress at work and the home. Some medicines and medical problems (such as depression) can also be the driving force behind low libido.

Unhappiness in the relationship and failure of communication can also lead to a lack of sexual desire.
