Hypnotherapy for sexual problems can help you resolve sex and intimacy issues quickly and sensitively

Hypnotherapy for Sexual Problems Sydney Hypnotherapist

Hypnotherapy can help you overcome a wide range of sexual problems and feel confident, comfortable and safe with sex and intimacy.

The vast majority of sexual problems arise from something about the way you are thinking and feeling. This then affects how your body is reacting and feeling.

Using various forms of hypnotherapy for sexual problems, you can learn to think and feel differently at both the conscious and unconscious level.  This will then allow your body to do what comes naturally. This is to respond well and feel good during sex.

Some of the areas that I help people with are as follows:

Erection Problems and Erectile Dysfunction

If you can develop and maintain an erection on your own, but lose it when you are with a partner (or at the crucial moment), then the cause is usually psychological.  It will likely be some kind of fear or performance anxiety that keeps your body in fight or flight mode.  It’s not possible to be in fight or flight mode and sex mode at the same time.  You’re not alone, 1 in 10 men suffers from this at some point in their lives.

Perhaps stress or worries about work, money, life or health are demanding your “thought time” and preventing you from switching off and becoming aroused.

Unresolved relationship issues can often interfere with sexual performance. If you’re suffering from depression, then the unresolved psychological issues causing inner conflicts, detract from sexual energy making it harder to feel aroused, excited and turned on.

It can lead to feelings of not being good enough in bed.  This can affect your partner too.  They might feel let down, disappointed or that it’s their fault.  This can create extra pressure on you as well.

Hypnotherapy for erection problems can help you feel positive and confident about your sexual ability.  Imagine enjoying a romantic evening without worrying about your performance.  What would it be like to perform effectively every night when you are alone with your wife, girlfriend or on a date.

Premature Ejaculation

This affects 20-30% of men at some point in their lives. It can become a learned behaviour (or habit) from teenage years. Back then, sex might have been rushed due to a fear of being caught.  If this happens too often, then this becomes what your body learns to do.

Premature ejaculation can also come from feelings of guilt or anxiety.  This over-excites your energy levels which speed everything up.  It can also arise from the shame or embarrassment of a bad sexual (or even non-sexual) experience.

My typical hypnotherapy treatment for premature ejaculation often involves resolving any underlying guilt or fear of getting caught.  It might also involve retraining your unconscious mind to know that its okay to relax and take your time.

Imagine not having to worry about ejaculating too early.  Enjoy having a sexually satisfied and happy partner and higher levels of self-esteem for you as well.  This is all possible and I can help you to do this.


This is the involuntary tightening or clenching of vaginal muscles to prevent or restrict entry. It typically affects 10-15% of women at some stage in their lives.

The cause is mostly psychological.  The body feels threatened in some way, so goes into fight or flight mode because it wants to protect itself.  An infection or inflammation could also be the cause. However you will probably already know if that is the case.  In some cases, it can simply be a fear of pain, based on information about sex gathered at a young age.

Vaginismus can result in severe distress, fear of intimacy and fear of an existing relationship ending because of this issue. You may be wondering how long your husband or boyfriend can wait for this to be resolved.

My hypnotherapy for vaginismus treatment would involve identifying and resolving the fear or threat, so that your body no longer feels a need to protect itself.  I would combine this with gentle relaxation and visualisation exercises to help you make peace with your own body.

Fear of Intimacy

This could be one or more of the following:

  • Fear of being touched
  • Fear of closeness
  • Fear of love or being loved
  • Fear of taking things to the next stage in your relationship
  • Fear of being naked in front of someone else

The cause is often an incident from childhood that has created and then locked this fear in place.  By releasing the emotions from this incident in hypnosis, a new belief will form, allowing the fear response to gently dissipate. You will be able to feel relaxed, calm and happy in intimate situations.

Sexual Confidence

This could be any of the following:

  • Confidence in the bedroom
  • Starting a conversation with a person you find attractive
  • Fear of making the first (or next) move

Treatment will typically involve dealing with the underlying fear and helping you gain a new sense of confidence in these areas.

How can Hypnotherapy for Sexual Problems help?

Although the above sexual problems seem different, I have found that there will be core underlying fears, beliefs or ideas that are triggering your imagination to trigger symptoms.  As with many fears, your imagination has a big part to play.

However, with sexual issues, your imagination comes into play much more vividly.  If you imagine all sorts of negative scenarios, then this will trigger the symptoms.  This can all be quite unconscious, so part of the treatment process will be making this more conscious so that we can help you change it.

I will also work on managing, reducing or resolving the fears or beliefs that caused the imagination to act this way in the first place.  When this happens, what you imagine will change and the symptoms will naturally ease, reduce or disappear.

How many sessions will I need?

As everyone is unique, this will tend to vary.  However, I would normally recommend 2 to 6 sessions spread over a few weeks to tackle this issue fully.

Sexual problems rarely improve by themselves and it can really hurt your long-term relationship when they persist.  It makes sense to seek help now so that you can enjoy this very special part of our human experience and feel confident having children down the road (if that is what you decide to do).
