Welcome to the Institute of Psychosexual Medicine. The IPM is a registered charity which provides training and undertakes research in psychosexual medicine. Our trained professionals can help people with a wide range of sexual difficulties.

This website provides information for professionals who wish to train in psychosexual medicine and for people who would like to find more help and advice about sexual problems.

The Institute was founded in 1974 based on psychoanalytic principles introduced by Dr Michael Balint and Dr Tom Main, both psychoanalysts. This has been developed by members offering specialist skills to doctors and other allied health professionals.
