What is Premature Ejaculation?

Premature Ejaculation, or PE as it is known medically, is when you “cum too quickly” either during sexual intercourse or sometimes before penetration has even occurred.

Along with Erectile Dysfunction, it is considered one of the most common sexual problems that men are likely to suffer.

In general terms, premature ejaculation tends to affect the younger, less experienced man.

Data shows that about a third of ALL men are likely to experience this problem at some point in their lives.

The majority of men will find that the more sexually experienced they become the smaller this problem gets as they develop a greater sense of control over climaxing.

Furthermore, because premature ejaculation is linked to anxiety and stress, a course of psychological counselling will almost certainly be helpful.

What can cause Premature Ejaculation?

As premature ejaculation tends to affect the younger man it is almost certainly the case that experience plays a major role in this problem.

This is not difficult to understand when one considers the amount of anticipation and anxiety that is created during early sexual encounters when the focus is all on “control” and the avoidance of “embarrassment”.

There are a number of medical problems that can cause you to experience premature ejaculation including prostrate problems, an over-active or under-active thyroid as well as the use of some recreational drugs.

Whatever the cause, PE is a problem that once experienced, can escalate into a full-blown psychological problem that tends to grow worse the more you worry about it.

Therapy & Counselling for Premature Ejaculation

We offer a number of different types of therapy and counselling for Premature Ejaculation and sexual problems.

Choosing the most suitable therapy depends on a number of different considerations including factors such as:

  • How long you have had the problem.
  • Your personal preferences.
  • How your problem is affecting you today.

You can read more about the different types of therapy for PE on the following links:

Although all therapies use slightly different approaches, the one thing they all have in common is the relationship that is formed between the client and therapist.

Research suggests that this therapy relationship may be the most important factor in achieving a good therapy outcome.

The behaviour change framework logo

Behaviour Change Framework – BCF

All of our counselling sessions and programmes for premature ejaculation are enhanced by applying the Behaviour Change Framework (BCF).

This scientifically proven protocol clearly defines the incremental stages of behaviour change that you need to go through in order to achieve long lasting and sustainable change.

Drawn from the Transtheoretical Model of Behaviour Change (TTM), the framework provides a roadmap that not only gauges the current stage of progression through the change process, but also indicates if more change is required before entering the next phase of therapy or coaching.

In this way, we are able to ensure that you get the best possible level of support in overcoming your problems as well as ensuring that we don’t terminate the change process prematurely.
