Hypnotherapy to Overcome Sexual disorders. In the course of their relationship, it is not entirely uncommon for couples to experience complications in maintaining or expressing their intimacy. Lack or loss of intimacy often limits the relationship, creating stress, anger, depression, guilt and can even lead to low or impaired self-esteem. While sexual problems can originate from physical or psychological conditions, it is very important to consult a medical doctor to eliminate or address any physical causes. However, hypnotherapy can still be incorporated to complement your medical treatment.
Broadly, and in laymen’s terms, there are 4 categories of sexual disorders :
- Sexual desire disorders
- Sexual arousal disorders
- Orgasm disorders
- Sexual pain disorders
The most common problems are premature ejaculation, impotency and performance anxiety for men and vaginismus and dyspareunia for women. While it is largely true that most of these sexual problems originate from sustained negative thought patterns, the first sensitizing events could be traumatic sexual experiences, long held beliefs that cause guilt and fear, anger towards the partner or stress from other areas of life.
For instance, 98% of premature ejaculation cases are psychological in origin. Most of the times clients experience a detrimental performance anxiety which in turn leads to depression and loss of self-confidence, which again becomes a cause for performance anxiety.
How can hypnotherapy and NLP help in overcoming sexual problems? (Intimacy Issues)
To be able to identify, assess and address a sexual disorder effectively it is essential to know what has triggered it. This trigger lies deep in the subconscious mind, something a person may not consciously be aware of. The answer to both, what causes a sexual dysfunction and the solution to it, lies within the clients mind.
Hypnotherapy and NLP are both powerful modalities to identify core causes or conditions and help shift gears from limiting thoughts and beliefs related to these causes, to empowering and self-affirming beliefs, to bring about desired and permanent changes in behavior.
