Psychosexual Medicine

We provide a caring and confidential service for adults living in Dorset who are experiencing sexual problems.  These clinics are provided by clinicians who have had specialist training in Psychosexual Medicine. They are members of the Institute of Psychosexual Medicine.

Psychosexual Medicine has been found to be very effective at helping a wide range of sexual problems including:

  • Erectile dysfunction (impotence);
  • Premature or delayed ejaculation;
  • Loss of interest in sex;
  • Difficulties with arousal or orgasm;
  • Painful intercourse;
  • Difficulties with vaginal penetration.

Referrals to the Psychosexual Medicine service need to be made through a healthcare professional. Please note, our current waiting time for face-to-face appointments is 9-12 months.

Please note this is not couple therapy and people are usually seen as individuals.

To find when and where we offer psychosexual medicine, you can select it from our Find a service tool.

Private psychosexual therapy is also available through the Institute of Psychosexual Medicine. You can find a list of private providers here.
