Spalding therapist is hoping to get men talking about erectile dysfunction during Men's Health Week
A Spalding therapist is encouraging men to talk about a taboo subject to improve their wellbeing during Men’s Health Week.
Rapid Transformational Therapist Rachel Farnsworth is hoping men will take the opportunity to talk about erectile dysfunction during this week.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a common issue, affecting men over the age of 40, but many find it embarrassing to seek treatment.
Mrs Farns-worth is raising awareness of this issue in a bid to get men to be more open about their feelings.
She said: “ED is difficult for a man to suffer and when it doesn’t happen and that makes the problem worse and it never happens.
“And being able to stand up to say ‘this is happening to me’ is difficult.
“They are told to bottle up their feelings and don’t cry but it is important to let it out.
“I want to get the message out there that is okay not to be okay.”
Mrs Farnsworth was
inspired to raise awareness of the issue after working with a client who had contacted her for support with anxiety.
She said: “He had emotional and physical abuse all his life. Physical abuse can lead to erectile dysfunction. It can manifest as a physical problem.
“Men don’t have the voice to speak out and say ‘this is happening to me’. The society we live in thinks men should not be in a relationship like that and it doesn’t happen to me.”
Mrs Farnsworth, who runs Wellness With Rachel, has been a Rapid Tansformational Therapist since 2018 and has worked with clients who had a range of issues.
Using a mixture of hypnotherapy, neuro-linguistic programming and cognitive therapy, Mrs Farnsworth says she is able to get to the root of the problems.
She said: “It is giving people their freedom that they need.”
