WHAT IS SEX THERAPY?
Sex therapy can be helpful for an individual or couple who feel their issues are affecting their quality of life, or just want to learn more about their sexuality. It can improve relationships and the erotic life in the broadest sense. We don't just want you to solve your specific problem, we want you to grow sexually, unlearn bad patterns, rethink unhelpful misconceptions about sex and relationships, dismiss common myths and relearn a healthier model of sexuality. We want you to face sex with more self-confidence, less fear, and a greater sense of self-esteem.
Sexual therapy is very satisfying and clients can notice positive changes within just a few sessions.Consultations do not involve any physical examinations, or any sexual acts, but it does require you to openly talk about sexual feelings and concerns. It also requires a level of self-awareness. We'll talk, we'll try to figure out together what is the root cause of any difficulties, and we'll give you some homework between sessions. You will have to work with your mind and body, both as an individual and as a couple.
Sex therapy can help with many different issues, lack of sexual desire both male and female, painful intercourse, difficulties with orgasm, arousal disorders, erectile problems, premature or delayed ejaculation, sexual difficulties following abuse, fear of sex, sex avoidance, and so on. We can also work on poor body image relating to intimacy, jealousy, sexual orientation or identity struggles or alternative sexualities

APPROACH TO THERAPY & HOW I WORK
Sex happens in the body but also in the mind and emotions. That is why understanding sexuality requires an integrative approach. During the sessions we'll talk about what you're experiencing, feeling and thinking about sex, and together we'll identify where you might need a bit of help.
All of the work you do in the therapy room is based on talking, however, you are also given some practical activities / homework to do in the privacy of your own home.
My personal perspective is that there is no ‘right and wrong' when it comes to sexuality. No matter how you identify, what you're into, your relationship status or how you aproach sex and intimicy. You'll be able to talk about yourself in a safe and confidential environment, free of shame and judgement.
It's very important that we understand how cultural / social environment is influencing in our sexuality, and that will be part of our work during the sessions.
Sex therapy is not a passive experience. This means that you as a client are actively engaged in the process every step of the way and you will be invited to really participate in thinking, doing, feeling and self enquiring.
