Abstract

I am a physician working in sexual medicine and sexual health in the United Kingdom, largely in the National Health Service. Nearly 40 years ago, after gaining my full qualifications in these fields (including a doctoral thesis), I decided that I needed more experience in psychiatry. So for the next 3 years I worked full time in general psychiatry, as well as setting up a sexual dysfunction clinic along with a clinical psychologist. I have always felt that an eclectic approach to patients with sexual dysfunction yields the best outcomes. I therefore use medications, cognitive behavioral sexual therapy, and mindfulness-based sexual therapy in my practice.
