Welcome to the official website of Dr Sandrine Atallah, renowned Lebanese medical psychosexologist and hypnotherapist based in Beirut, Lebanon.

You will hereby find all relevant information concerning human sexuality and sexual health.

According to the WHO : “Sexual health is a state of physical, emotional, mental and social well-being in relation to sexuality; it is not merely the absence of disease, dysfunction or infirmity. Sexual health requires a positive and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences, free of coercion, discrimination and violence." 

However, what matters most is your own perception of sexuality and how it can improve your quality of life.

Feeling good about one’s self, body and sexuality is necessary to reach sexual health. However, every man or woman questions his/her sexual “normality”. Concerns vary from body image to sexual performance issues. In order to achieve sexual health, talk about your concerns.


Good sex is not about performance but about relational and emotional skills. It’s all about a give and take synergy between two partners. Indeed, good sex is about intimacy, pleasuring, and eroticism for mutual satisfaction.


Knowledge is the key to sexual health. Accurate and realistic information about sexuality is essential to reach sexual health. Attaining sexual health requires understanding physical, psychological, and relationship factors in play during sexual encounters and interactions.


Consult your doctor in case of sexual difficulties. Problems don’t get solved with time but with proper counseling and treatment. Solutions are available and are tailored to each individual case.


A healthy lifestyle leads to a healthy sexuality. In other words, proper sleep, regular exercise, a healthy balanced diet, weight reduction, reducing alcohol consumption and quitting smoking are all basic requirements of sexual health.

Frequently Asked Questions

You should consult a sexologist not only when you encounter a sexual problem distressing you but also when you have unanswered questions about sexuality.
Sexual problems can have biological, psychological and/or sociocultural origins. Most frequently sexual difficulties are the consequence of the interplay of multiple factors. Biological reasons include physical illness, infection or side effects from medications. Psychological causes can be linked to depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, uncertainties about sexuality and previous sexual experiences. Sociocultural factors such as stereotypes and misconceptions have also a negative impact on sexual function. Many sexual problems are temporary. Some sexual concerns require proper management and treatment.
Management of sexual health concerns follows a step-care process that begins with sex education, counseling and modification of adjustable factors and then proceeds to first-line, second-line, and third-line treatment strategies. Available management options of reversible causes include sex therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, physical therapy, lifestyle changes including exercise and diet, modification of prescription medications with secondary effects, couple’s therapy and relaxation therapy. First-line therapies include hormone therapy (androgens, local and/or systemic estrogens), psychopahrmacotherapy and oral medications for erectile dysfunction. Second-line and third-line therapies include more invasive urological and gynecological procedures and surgery. The most efficacious way to manage sexual difficulties is through a multidisciplinary approach.
Sex therapy is a type of psychotherapy to resolve concerns about sexual function, sexual feelings and intimacy — either in individual therapy or in couple therapy— for adults of any age, gender or sexual orientation Sex therapy in our unit is provided by physicians certified in sexual medicine and psychosexology. It is usually a short-term therapy individualized according to patients’ needs and issues. Certified sex therapists do not have physical/sexual contact with patients, in the clinic or anywhere else.
You need to schedule an appointment in advance. Sessions are usually 40 min long. Your privacy and confidentiality will be fully protected. The first session starts usually with the description of your specific sexual concerns and a full sexual history. Generally, a number of sessions are required — usually weekly or once every two weeks for several months. It's usually more beneficial to involve your partner/spouse through the sextherapy process. Depending on your concerns, sextherapy may be enough — or your psychosexologist may be part of a team that includes your gynecologist/urologist, endocrinologist, psychiatrist or physical therapist… For some sexual concerns, medications are prescribed
