Sex Therapy Counselling

Good sex and intimacy are integral to feeling fulfilled and satisfied in life. It is very common to run into stumbling blocks around sex, sexuality, intimacy and satisfaction. Sexual challenges and sexual dysfunction can have a huge impact on how we experience the world and the way we think, feel and act about sex can have a significant impact on our intimate relationships, individual satisfaction and general happiness in life.

Often, individuals and couples who are experiencing sexual dysfunction and seeking sex therapy support are facing some of the following common sexual challenges;

There are many names for professionals who offer support in this area; sex therapist, sexuality therapist, sex counsellor, intimacy therapist - whatever the label, a sex therapist is a trained professional who will support you to find healthy, happy solutions to your sex and intimacy issues.

With me, a sex therapy sessionĀ involves traditional talk therapy as a professionally trained sex therapist. Your session will take place in a professional office and will never involve any form of physical contact, nudity, or sexual behavior between therapist and client. While discussions with a sex therapist can be very frank, they will also be professional, respectful, and educational.
