My name is Dr Rosie King. I began working as a General Practitioner after graduating from the University of NSW. For the past 26 years I have specialised in the area of sex therapy. Over this period I have gained valuable experience working with eminent and internationally renowned physicians and medical scientists in the field of sexual dysfunction and gained the skills and experience to treat and manage distressing issues and problems that can be medical, relational, psychological or a combination.
I have a private sexual therapy practice in Sydney, Australia, and provide trusted and confidential assistance for clients with issues such as:
- mismatched libidos
- low libido and lack of sexual arousal
- erectile dysfunction
- painful sex / vaginismus
- and other sexual and relationship difficulties.
Sexual counseling involves working with individuals and couples to improve their sexual function and relationships by providing a confidential forum for open discussion of issues, giving education about sexual function and dysfunction and making specific suggestions for overcoming sexual and relationship difficulties. When assisting clients, I work closely with a highly qualified and respected team of urologists, gynaecologists, physiotherapists, relationship counselors and clinical psychologists to whom I refer patients if necessary.
Sexual difficulties often lead to conflict, relationship dissatisfaction and poor quality of life. For some couples if these issues are not addressed the result may be relationship breakdown.
Men can experience erectile difficulties for a number of reasons including performance anxiety, illness, medications or ageing. Low sexual desire in men is not uncommon. Premature ejaculation affects 30% of men. The opposite problem, delayed ejaculation, is often distressing for both partners. An emerging and serious problem that has the potential to harm both relationships and male sexual function is the addictive nature of pornography.
The most common problem for women is low sexual desire. This may be due to physical, emotional, sexual or relationship factors. Many women report lack of sexual arousal and pleasure and difficulty reaching orgasm. Painful sex can occur at any age and can be due to a number of different causes including vaginismus and menopausal changes.
Discussing this personal subject is often embarrassing and difficult, but you are not alone and help is available. Most people experience some form of difficulty or adjustment in regard to their sexual wellbeing during their lifetime.
