So what’s it like seeing a sex therapist?

Most men aren’t great at getting help for their sexual problems. For many, the decision to get expert advice to resolve a sexual issue is usually really difficult to make (or is sometimes forced upon them)…
In truth, things can only get better when you realise that there is a problem that doesn’t seem to be going away, and that you are finally determined fix it.

If there was one word that sums up what men feel after seeing one of our therapists, that word is ‘relief’. If there was a single sentence, it would be “Why didn’t I do this sooner?”

It takes courage to see a sex therapist. It can only happen when you realise that there is a problem that doesn’t seem to be going away, and that you have made a commitment to fix it.


Here at the ManFocus Clinic, three questions pretty much drive our approach to sex therapy and the restoration sexual vitality:

What do we need to do in order to alleviate you of distress and to fix your problem? What do we need to do to ensure that the problem doesn’t re-emerge? What do we need to do to make sure your future sex life is not only satisfying but a source of great pleasure and intimate connection?

During our first session, we normally start off by asking you a few simple questions about your health, your sexual history and if you’re in relationship, how things are going between the two of you. Anything that you tell is treated in a respectful, non-judgemental, empathetic and confidential manner. There is no pressure. You only tell us what you want to tell us, when you are ready.

In later sessions, we'll work together at trying to gain insight as to the nature and frequency of the issues. Your treatments not only have to work, but they need to make sense to you. At the end of each session, we give you practical strategies for addressing and resolving sexual challenges. Each time we meet, we discuss what worked, what didn’t, and we make adjustments until we get “it” right.
