Impotence and Erectile Dysfunction
There’s nothing to be embarrassed about here. There is no judgement. ED is a topic that most men suffer from in silence, it’s not usually the topic of the men’s conversations and because of this many men feel very isolated and lonely, often not seeking help, spending years missing out on a very natural part of human enjoyment. If you’re reading this page then you are heading in the right direction.
Sex, masturbation and in-between is a natural part of being human and to lose the ability to fufill these actions can have significant impact on confidence, self esteem, mental health and on relationships. Working with a professional like me can help you tin two ways. Firstly it may be a lifestyle issue that may be impacting on the ability to get or maintain an erection such as smoking, weight management or alcohol consumption. All of which can be worked on and resolved if you are ready to make changes.
For some people ED is not caused by lifestyle or a physical reason, it can be a psychological or emotional cause. This could be stress, anxiety or depression, trauma or something else. These might be related to sex, and or relationships or they might have nothing to do with sex or intimacy yet still be manifested in ED. Talking therapy, hypnotherapy and NLP can get to the root cause and allow you to break free from Erectile dysfunction and get back to enjoying your body and possibly someone else’s body too.
It’s true, you can look to hypnosis and therapy to remove erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction (aka ED) is very common, affecting about one in ten men, and is one of the most commonly treated sexual problems in my office today. Erectile dysfunction issues that can be resolved with hypnotherapy and NLP and EFT include, but aren’t limited to:
- A difficulty in obtaining or maintaining firm erections
- Your libido (sex drive) may have decreased or disappeared entirely
- You may avoid intimacy or physical relationships or perhaps your partner feels you’re not attracted to them
- Your belief in your ability Sexual confidence – You worry about pleasing a partner or perhaps feel sexually inexperienced.
Suffering with ED, you may be trapped in a continual loop of anticipating failure to achieve an erection, which in turn brings about the failure and therefore reinforces the expectation that it will happen again. However, hypnotherapy can and does help to break this cycle.
Erectile Dysfunction Clinical Hypnotherapy Treatment
Working with me means that we will not just treat the symptoms, we also get to the root cause and address it. If we only treat the symptoms this can often lead to short term results or results in the issues being manifested elsewhere. Using clinical hypnotherapy, NLP and EFT, we can identify the reason and root cause to solve the very start of the issue and release your body and mind from the symptoms long term.
Sexually active individuals can benefit greatly from using hypnosis to improve sex and relationships. The most effective way to treat erectile dysfunction completely and permanently, is to resolve what’s causing it; if there is no longer any cause, there can be no effect.
Why do you suffer from erectile dysfunction? You have probably puzzled over this many times before. Looked for reasons, triggers behind it. You may know why already, perhaps an early sexual experience caused you embarrassment or feelings of inadequacy. Perhaps it’s been triggered by stress, guilt or depression. Maybe it’s linked to a wider anxiety issue, or fear of failure, rejection or criticism. Knowing this doesn’t make the problem go away. Or maybe you can’t think of any reasons to explain it, that doesn’t mean there is no cause, because for something to exist it has to have been created. It has to come from somewhere. If you don’t know what it is then what you should know is that it could stem from what appears to be a completely innocuous event, something so insignificant that you have never paid it any attention. However from tiny acorns oak trees grow and often from a tiny event our brain transforms this into significant issues that have far reaching implications.
My approach is to each client individually, in complete confidence and without preconceptions. We work together to find the answer to free you from ED and any associated fear or anxiety. Leaving you free to enjoy sexual encounters once again.

A bit more information:
What is it?
Impotence or Erectile dysfunction or disorder (ED) is the inability to develop and maintain an erection for satisfactory sexual intercourse or activity. Erectile dysfunction or erectile disorder are the preferred terms as opposed to impotence. So from now on I will refer to ED.
It is not something to be embarrassed about, or something that makes you any less of a man. It is a condition that can have a very big impact on relationships, confidence and happiness and something that the sooner you get help the better. Men and women deserve to have a good sex life for as long as possible and why should you not want to make sure you can get every bit of enjoyment out of every sexual encounter.
Why is it?
Physical or psychological reasons or both?
Narrowing of penis blood vessels, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, hormone problems or side effects of prescribed medication, alcohol, smoking or being overweight. These causes can all be treated by medication and a visit to the doctor and/or a change in lifestyle.
Advice includes eating a healthy well balanced diet, reducing alcohol intake, being of a healthy weight, exercising, stop smoking, regular exercise and reducing anxiety and stress. If this advice is something that you’d like to change but you don’t know how to or don’t think you have the will power then I can help you achieve change. We can work on all these things during our 1 on 1 sessions.
Stress, anxiety, emotional issues, depression, trauma either directly or indirectly related to sex can have an impact on ED.
It is usually an emotional or psychological issue if erection dysfunction occurs intermittently. Perhaps you can get erections in the morning but when it comes to sex then the issues arise? Perhaps you can get an erection but ejaculation is an issue?
Solutions for this is to seek support and help.
You can choose to ask your doctor for a referral to go on an NHS waiting list to see a professional. Although you may be waiting a significant time.
Seek private help, such as me, my work with you involves NLP, talking therapy and hypnotherapy or you may want to consider counselling or psychotherapy. The most important factor is finding a professional that you are comfortable speaking with and who can help you move forwards and regain the joy and confidence in your body.
Am I alone?
Several studies accessed the prevalence of ED. The Massachusetts Male Aging Study reported a prevalence of 52%.2 The study demonstrated that ED is increasingly prevalent with age: approximately 40% of men are affected at age 40 and nearly 70% of men are affected at age 70. The prevalence of complete ED increased from 5% at age 40 to 15% at age 70.2 Age was the variable most strongly associated with ED.
Evidence shows that sexual dysfunction was more likely among men in poor physical and emotional health. The study also concluded that sexual dysfunction is an important public health concern and that emotional issues are likely to contribute to the experience sexual dysfunction.
