Techniques used

Regression techniques are effective at tackling the root causes of sexual problems, which are normally psychological, rather than physical. Hypnotic relaxation techniques such as deep breathing can be used to reduce anxiety and encourage intimacy. For those with body image issues or low self esteem, building confidence is a necessary part of resolving problems regarding intimacy. When relationships are involved, sessions are conducted for each individual separate from his/her partner.

GP referral

It is important to visit your GP if you are experiencing erectile dysfunction, vaginismus or symptoms of any other physical condition. Once s/he has ruled out any underlying medical cause(s) you can begin hypnotherapy. GPs frequently refer their patients to me.

Typical duration of therapy

Since each patient has specific issues of varying complexity, sessions will be recommended accordingly. Six sessions along with CD support over a six-month period are recommended for complex relationship issues, but problems involving only one person are typically resolved much sooner.

Disclaimer: with all hypnotherapy, results and the number of sessions required may vary from individual to individual.
