You may not have thought about hypnosis for improving your sex life. But clients come to see me with a variety of issues around this important aspect of their lives. Some are dealing with physiological issues such as premature ejaculation, impotence, a lowered sex drive or inability to reach orgasm. Others feel emotionally disconnected from their partners and no longer desire intimacy. And many have a lifestyle that is so busy and demanding, that sex has long been put on the back burner. If your sex life is not what you would like it to be, hypnosis can be a great tool to revive it.
If you have a physical issue such as erectile dysfunction or lowered sex drive, don't give up. Go to your family physician who will examine you and may give you medication or refer you to a clinic. Your physician may tell you that there seems to be no physical reason for your problem. In that case, hypnosis may be valuable to help improve your sex life.
Sometimes the relationship between partners becomes a battle ground. Often, the disharmony and anger carry over into the bedroom and sex is not good or disappears completely. A marriage counselor will work on the relationship. But improving your sex life can be a part of that. The sex act itself can produce emotional intimacy which in turn improves the relationship. If emphasis in hypnosis is on pleasing your partner that intimacy can return quickly.
Sexual addiction is another area of sexuality that can destroy a relationship. Some mental health professionals do not believe that sexual addiction exists. They believe that it is actually some other emotional or psychological issue such as bipolar disorder or anxiety. But The National Council on Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity talks to people every day who describe their out of control sexuality as destroying relationships and causing deep problems in their lives.
