Psychosexual Therapy Service

Referrals by GP’s and Healthcare Professionals Only

The Psychosexual Therapy Service offers a combination of face to face and video consultations dependent on individuals needs and has a current waiting time of approximately 4-6 months.

Sefton Psychosexual Therapy Service is a specialist service that helps individuals and couples address sexual issues, problems and relationship difficulties. Our therapist has completed specialist courses that are recognised by The College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT). We therefore abide by the COSRT code of ethics.

Psychosexual therapy is a process of using a number of different psychological and or physical approaches to help clients with sexual and relationship problems.

Many people experience some difficulty in their sexual lives at different stages across their lifespan. Some of these may resolve themselves whilst others may need additional help. We are here to help individuals and couples address problems with sexual functioning and relationship issues as well as concerns regarding gender, sexuality, sexual orientation and lifestyle. Sometimes sexual difficulties have affected someone throughout their life, or the problem may be a more recent development.

Problems encountered may be related to:

  • Physical or medical conditions
  • Social issues or emotional and relationship circumstances.

Often there is a combination of factors contributing to the difficulty experienced.

If you are concerned about any of the above and feel you may need support, please speak to your GP or healthcare professional about a referral to our service.
