How can a counsellor help me with my sexual health?

Managing anxiety about STIs

You may be worried about pending results or struggling to find the courage to book your STI test. Our counsellors can help you to take control of your sexual health and reduce the impact your STI test has on your life.

Understanding the factors behind your concerns

Having an STI can trigger a variety of different emotions, ranging from anger to embarrassment or frustration. It may trigger thoughts such as: “Why has this happened to me?”, “What did I do to deserve an STI?” or “What does this mean for my relationship?”. Our counsellors will work with you to understand how you are feeling and ways to cope with these emotions.

Understanding what your STI status means for you

Testing positive for an STI can feel daunting. The good news is that most STIs are curable or manageable with the right medication. However, you may have questions about your sexual health status which you can discuss with your counsellor.

Implementing healthy lifestyle changes to prevent repeat STIs

Avoiding future STIs is something to think about. Our counsellor can discuss how to have safer sex, stay healthy and avoid repeat occurrences of the same or different STIs. It is important to avoid putting yourself and your health at risk in the future.
