Psychosexual Services

Sexual problems can affect anyone at any stage in their life and can affect people both in relationships and those not in a relationship. Sometimes the way people think about sex can have a negative effect on their sexual performance.



If you experience any of the following, and the cause is thought to be due to feelings or a body-mind block, Swish Services may be able to offer you psychosexual therapy. If this is a service you are interested in, please speak to your GP to discuss a referral to the Swish Psychosexual Service.
