In brief: Cognitive Therapy

In years past, psychological causes for ED were considered the rule; we now know they make up a small minority.
Men who are unable to achieve erection on demand but still maintain normal firm am or nocturnal erections likely harbor psych issues such as situational or performance anxiety. Reassurance and, occasionally, ED drugs help to restore confidence, after which the ED drugs may be stopped.
