Edinburgh Psychosexual Clinic was established in 2020 and provides a pragmatic approach to resolving sexual problems. Our focus is to quickly provide clients with the information and skills required to reduce anxiety, increase confidence, and improve sexual responses.
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 usually beneficial - to further explore the problem and to start or support appropriate treatments.
At Edinburgh Psychosexual Clinic we use face-to-face, telephone, and video appointments, according to client preference.

Psychosexual Therapy starts with an Initial Assessment session where your therapist will listen carefully to your problem to be very clear about what it is you are experiencing.
The therapist will discuss with you and assess the exact nature of your problem and the biological, psychological and social factors which are causing it. You will then receive a Report summarising the reasons for your problem and a Treatment Plan to resolve your problem.
This might involve physical treatments you can practice at home (alone or with a partner), medical treatments, psychological treatments, lifestyle changes, or any combination of the above.
Although many clients will go on to have Follow-Up appointments, for some clients it is enough to have a better understanding of their problem and the various treatment options available.
