What is the group therapy?

We are now offering a new approach to therapy for couples who are experiencing sexual difficulties.

The groups are designed for couples experiencing a disconnect in their levels of desire or finding that their sex life has diminished since they first got together.

 This is a unique opportunity to join a small group led by two experienced sex therapists using material based on the work of Dr Peggy Kleinplatz at Ottawa University in Canada. Groups have been running successfully in the USA and Canada for several years.

Benefits of group therapy

For some people a group approach is really helpful because more people are involved, with each individual and couple bringing their own perspective on shared difficulties. 

There will be 4 or 5 other couples participating; how much you contribute is up to you and there is no pressure to share things unless you want to. Just listening to how other people deal with these issues is helpful.

Things we cover

  • Giving time and attention to all parts of your relationship
  • Learning from the experience of other couples who have found the keys to desire and a fulfilling sex life
  • Creating an environment with your partner that allows for greater intimacy
  • Learning to notice our own bodies and sensations and what gives us pleasure
  • Understanding the power of kindness and how to resolve conflict in a way that creates connection
  • Allowing time to reflect on messages about our bodies and sexuality that we may not have considered before

Costs

Affordability is an additional advantage, with the cost of 8 x 2 hour weekly sessions typically half that of the traditional approach to couples and sex therapy.  

For these sessions, we have a 2022 introductory offer of £30 per couple, per session. You can pay upfront for your sessions, or in instalments. 

However, if you are experiencing financial difficulties, concessions are available. Please call or email us directly to discuss further.
