Problems that are psychological in origin, rather than physiological, and are called psychosexual disorders or difficulties.

Sexual unhappiness is created by inhibitions and embarrassments

Guilty conscience, stress, anxiety, nervousness, worry, fear, depression, physical or emotional trauma, abuse and rape creates imbalances.

Ignorance or improper sex education can be a reason for incompatibility.

Deep-seated conflicts between sexual feelings during adolescence and that which is represented by family,religion or cultural (for example, a lot of woman have the attitude that sex is dirty, sinful or a shameful)  and acts as a trigger for psychosexual disorder symptoms and create dissatisfaction.

Relationship issues, like power, trust or anger at partner and lack of communication and commitment to one’s partner, lack of self-esteem can lead to sexual disorders.

During the desire, arousal or orgasm phase dysfunction can creep in and it can be emotional or mentally created.

Discussion on sexual problems is critical. The conditions and triggers are respectfully analysed. Understanding the conflicts, Leonie can assist the client to find resolutions or acceptance.
