Premature Ejaculation (Rapid Ejaculation)
Do you have problems coming too quickly? Do you come quicker than you or your partner would like? Does this make you feel ashamed, embarrassed, guilty, nervous, or angry?
Rapid ejaculation is the most common sexual problem effecting men. Rapid ejaculation can affect your self-esteem, your sex-life, and your relationship. It can also affect your mood. That is when a sex counsellor may be needed.
Problems with rapid ejaculation are often caused by a man’s negative feelings getting in the way of him learning to control his ejaculation. All these feelings get worse over time by repeated failures, leading to more anxiety, and embarrassment. Sometimes, a man’s partner may say or do something to unintentionally compound the negative feelings.
If you think you’ve got a problem, a trained sex therapist in Melbourne can help you get to the bottom of the problem in therapy. Therapy is purely talk-therapy, which involves exploring your problem, working out what your specific and unique set of circumstances that lead to the problem in the first place, and we’ll come up with a treatment plan to solve the problem in the long-term. Therapy often involves learning new skills e.g., mind skills for handling set-backs, anxious thoughts and reactions, training for enhancing pleasurable sensations, which means there will often be tasks to practice at home.
Contacting a sexual counsellor in Melbourne can be effective for men of different ages, and different walks of life. Therapy can lead to long-term improvement of your problem.

It can help you get back on track, re-build your self-esteem, relationships, and get back to having a fulfilling sex-life.
