“Helping you gain control over the things you want to change”
How can Cognitive Hypnotherapy help with Women’s Sexual Health?
We have all heard about the mind and body connection and how our mental state can impact hugely on our health and wellbeing. This is especially true when it comes to sexual health for women. There are many physical conditions and mental states that can influence how we feel about ourselves, which in turn can affect our sexual relationships.
- Physical issues such as pelvic pain, vulvodynia and cystitis can be greatly exacerbated by emotional stress and anxiety.
- Vaginismus is a psychological condition which can develop because of the beliefs we have about sex or ourselves or after childbirth, sexual pain or trauma (not necessarily sexual).
- Women who have contracted genital herpes or other STDs often feel shame and fear of telling future partners.
- Women who have undergone a mastectomy can feel differently about their bodies and their femininity post operatively, and this can impact strongly on their self image and sexual relationships.
I have worked successfully with the above conditions and many more. Because my tailored approach uses a range of proven techniques to gently but clearly identify and respond to the actual root causes of your issues, rather than just generically treating your symptoms, this means that we can work together to help free you from the issues that are impacting on your wellbeing.
Consultations available in Henley on Thames and Harley Street, London.

Maria Elliot (a physiotherapist who specialises in women’s health) recommended Fiona. I needed to reduce my stress levels due to chronic pelvic pain, which has affected many areas of my life. Fiona worked on the reasons for the stress & also taught me techniques to help reduce them myself and has thus minimized /eliminated my pain levels. The most significant change has been the reduction of my stress level and the reduction of the chronic pelvic pain that has plagued me for 15 years. I am amazed and grateful for her help! Thank you Fiona!
I have been recently been diagnosed with vaginismus, a condition that I have unknowingly carried for most of my life. I have had some strong psychological barriers to break, and Fiona has been instrumental in helping me get past them. As a therapist, she is patient and non-judgemental over such a sensitive issue and absolutely excellent at helping me pinpoint and get past mental blocks I’ve been trying to overcome.
