Many cases of impotence are psychological in basis. Impotence can be caused by physical factors or in some cases, a combination of the two. But very often, there is a psychological reason for your problem.

If this is the case then counselling may help.

This can either be psychosexual counselling to deal with sexual or relationship problems. Another option is cognitive behavioural counselling which is useful at treating anxiety or depression “ which may be causing your impotence.

Both of these are discussed individually within this section.

Counselling is useful in situations where a couple are unable to discuss sexual problems with each other. Men feel tense and frustrated by their inability to achieve an erection whereas their partners feel unwanted or unattractive. This is particularly a problem if the man does not confide in his partner.

This leads to a sense of failure which causes tension and anger between the couple.

It will help if both of you can sit down and discuss this in a frank and honest manner. This is not an easy thing to do and we recognise that for many men, recognising that you have an erection problem is difficult enough without trying to talk about it.

A counselling session, such as psychosexual therapy can help as it encourages you and your partner to discuss sexual problems in the open. It can also offer advice on improving your sex life.
