Sexual problems like premature ejaculation, impotence or difficulty achieving orgasm are very common at some point in an adult’s life.
These difficulties often have a psychological basis when medical problems are not found. Men and women can overcome these obstacles and experience greater sexual enjoyment with short-term cognitive behavioral therapy approaches.
Cognitive therapy involves a collaborative effort between both the psychologist and client to examine and understand negative thought patterns that are related to the emotional and behavioral disturbance. Individuals are often able to quickly gain insight into thoughts that are leading to sexual problems within their life. With cognitive therapy, clients are able to improve their awareness of these thoughts and learn to challenge and overcome their core values. In addition, cognitive therapy identifies and reduced unhelpful patterns of functioning. Clients learn techniques that enable them to rid themselves of unwanted habits and establish healthier ways of living.
