Hypnosis / Hypnotherapy for Sexual problems.

Sometimes sexual problems is an area that people find difficult to acknowledge in themselves, and they can be slow to seek help. Often it isn’t until a relationship is threatened before someone will seek treatment, and that’s sad because it is a really easy area to work with and responds exceptionally well to hypnotherapy.

There is a direct link between the level of anxiety or stress held at a subconscious level and a person’s sexual function. The higher the anxiety the lower the sexual function.

Because pure hypnoanalysis works at resolving built up anxiety or stress at a subconscious level, a person’s sexual function always improves after treatment – regardless of whether they come for sexual problems or not! So when we are focused on treating sexual difficulty the results are often even more impressive.

The first 7 years of our life is what is known as ‘the imprint period’, where we learn most of our belief system and conditioning. Given our cultural history and taboos about sex it isn’t difficult to see how we would have left over guilt and unconscious stress around the area of sex, or indeed why sexual function is so commonly impaired.

Hypnotherapy can help with the following sexual symptoms:

  • Impotence (Male Erectile Disorder or Erectile dysfunction), this is the condition which causes men to have difficulty in getting an erection, or cannot maintain an erection during sex. This can lead to feeling like a failure, frustration, feelings of inadequacy, feelings of rejection and feeling 'on the spot'.
  • Premature ejaculation (PE) this is the most common sexual dysfunction in men younger than 40 years old. Premature ejaculation is the persistent experience of ejaculating too quickly with hardly any sexual stimulation. Premature ejaculation occurs before the man wants it to either before or during sex or before penetration. Premature ejaculation is often a symptom of underlying lack of confidence, depression, sense of failure, low self-esteem, helplessness and other emotional issues. It may look like the sufferer gets over-excited but in fact the underlying emotion is usually fear: fear of women or a fear of being judged.
  • Vaginisimus in women, a sexual problem affecting women where sex is painful or impossible due to intense involuntary muscular contraction.
  • Orgasmic dysfunction in women When women fail to reach orgasm even if they enjoy sex it is known as Anorgasmia - the failure to reach orgasm / failure to climax.
  • Frigidity Technically known as Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder. Loss of sex drive, lack of interest in sex or low libido can cause frustration and problems within a relationship. One partner (usually female but not always) avoids sexual intercourse, avoids sexual thoughts, has no desire for sex, has a fear of being intimate etc.

We go on a journey of your mind and let go of the built up emotion, misconceptions and left over guilt, that is causing your subconscious mind to be unduly stressed. There is a direct link between the level of stress your subconscious mind feels and your sexual function. Your sexual function begins to decrease the more stress or anxiety is built up in your mind. Once the internal subconscious stress needle goes down to normal levels then your normal sex drive and sexual function is restored.

Why Hypnoanalysis is so successful at treating sexual issues

The cause of sexual problems are generally created in a person’s mind in childhood (though the symptoms may not appear for many years). The difficulty is caused by the sufferer bottling up some strong emotions. The only way to resolve the problem - is to release the bottled up emotions that are causing it.

These bottled up emotions are stored in the person’s subconscious mind so the sufferer has no conscious awareness of them. In our formative years (with only a child’s resourcefulness) bottling the emotions up was the best plan of action for dealing with difficult strong emotion. It was done by our subconscious mind so we weren't overwhelmed by the emotions, and could get on with growing up.

However, now that you are grown up you do have the resourcefulness of an adult and can easily face and resolve those emotions that were too much for the child. Your subconscious mind wants you to do this and will do everything in its power to encourage you to resolve the internal conflict (emotion) - including giving you the symptom! It's as if that symptom is a signal telling you that there's something inside you ready to be resolved. Most other types of therapy cannot gain access to these 'locked away' emotions and experiences, whereas Pure hypno-Analysis can.

The process of Hypnoanalysis requires a strong bond of trust and rapport being created between the therapist, and the client. Over a period of about eight sessions, we slowly and effortlessly link thoughts and memories back through time (using a process of 'free association') until we come to the bottled up emotions. When we release these emotions, the sexual problem is resolved forever.
