Kingston & Ontario Psychotherapy for Adults with Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

Erectile Dysfuntion Treatment

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common issue affecting many men worldwide, causing significant distress and impacting both physical and emotional well-being. At Limestone Clinic Kingston Counselling & Psychotherapy, we offer specialised psychotherapy for erectile dysfunction to help men regain confidence and improve their sexual health and enjoyment.

OK, OK, but IS IT TREATABLE? Often, yes!

ED can stem from various causes, including physical conditions such as diabetes and heart disease, or psychological issues like stress, anxiety, and depression. Psychotherapy has proven to be an effective treatment for ED, particularly when psychological factors are at play. Let's face it - this is not a condition that makes you feel super great about yourself, and over time, this takes a toll.


We get it.

And, we know how to help.

What is Erectile Dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction is characterised by the inability to achieve or maintain an erection sufficient for satisfactory sexual performance. While occasional difficulties are normal, persistent problems warrant professional attention.

If anything like this is happening in your life and it feels important to you, there is no reason to sit and wait. Take action, and get the benefit of professional knowledge, help and support.

Understanding ED

Common Causes of ED include but are not limited to:

  • Physical Factors: Cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, hormonal imbalances, and neurological disorders.

Talk to your Doctor or Nurse Practitioner

It is important that, if there are physical issues contributing to your problem, these are addressed with a medical professional, in addition to working on the understandable and inevitable psychological impact that ED has upon you.
