Sexual Health Counselling & Therapy
Let’s talk about sex, baby
Bet you can’t get that song out of your head now…sorry (not really). When it comes to sex, there is still so much misinformation and negative stigma out there.
When you’re sick, you see your doctor. When your eyesight is playing up, you visit your optometrist. If you’ve got a sore tooth, you see a dentist. So, doesn’t it make sense to see a sex therapist if you’re having issues that are directly related to your sexual health?
Sexual health is just as important as your general health and wellbeing.
Yet most of today’s education is still geared towards contraception, body parts, pregnancy and consent. It doesn’t help when porn, social media and movies, the major everyday influences, paint an unrealistic picture of what it’s all about. How about experiencing pleasure? Dealing with sexual shame? Embracing sex positivity and empowerment? We need to stop viewing sex as a taboo subject.
From understanding yourself to having your needs met, the acceptance that sex and sexual health issues are just another normal part of life will be incredibly liberating.
Here’re a selection of the sexual health issues my clients face:
My approach to sex therapy and counselling
I know that acknowledging and talking about sensitive sexual issues can be extremely challenging. Whether it’s online, over the phone or at my office, I provide a safe, confidential and respectful environment for you to feel as comfortable as possible.
Tailored to your needs and goals, my sex therapy sessions are designed to help you rebuild your confidence while relearning sexual techniques and behaviours.
How does sex therapy work?
We’ll discuss your sexual history and assess the presented problem. Based on that, I’ll use a solution-focused approach and proven, evidence-based strategies to personalise a treatment plan that’s aligned with your requirements. We’ll also work through the emotional factors that may be contributing to your sexual health issues. Depending on your plan, I may give you homework and resources to go over in your own time, as part of your therapy.
Everyone is beautifully unique, which is why I never use a one-size-fits-all approach.
If you’re thinking of getting in touch with me, thank you in advance for your trust and for giving yourself permission to “heal”. Empowering your journey to sexual betterment and helping you achieve your personal goals will always be my top priority.
