Overview

Sexual health counselling

This is a free confidential service, offered by a range of specialist counsellors.

People of any age or sexual orientation can come to us to talk about their feelings and problems with sex and intimacy.

Our counsellors have experience working with:

  • issues presented within the LGBT+ community
  • drug and alcohol dependency issues
  • painful sex
  • menopausal symptoms which may interfere with sex and intimacy

We can help with:

  • general anxieties around sex and intimacy
  • loss of interest in or lack of desire for sex and intimacy
  • particular concerns that men who have sex with men may encounter, such as multiple PEP interventions, or lack of self-esteem or isolation
  • relationship problems either in an existing relationship or with starting a new one
  • an increase in risk-taking behaviour, such as having unprotected sex or changes in drug or alcohol use
  • adjusting to change after an HIV diagnosis
