CONCERNS ABOUT SEX - CAN COUNSELLING HELP...
It’s all around us – on tv, in writing, in films, in your face - sex everywhere. Yet there are many thinking “Others look as though they are getting what they like and want, so what about me?”
Whether young, old, disabled or able-bodied, lots of people are unsure whether they should be feeling how they feel or wanting what they want. Many feel unable to speak to anyone and feel trapped and alone in whatever degree of unhappiness.
Sexual issues and the pain they evoke can be dealt with if they are sensitively and openly explored. By talking in confidence with a counsellor or therapist, people can discover more about how their own attitudes and expectations of sex have been developed and been influenced by their families, peer group or culture. They can find the support needed to look at their patterns of behaviour and reactions to sexual issues.
Finding a new clarity can reveal choices where before there has seemed only stalemate.
