    Sex is a natural and healthy part of life

    The World Health Organization calls sex “a central aspect of being human”.

    Good, consensual, and safe sex is essential for overall health and wellbeing. Yet, this health behaviour is so often associated with shame, embarrassment, and anxiety.

    Research shows that sexual dysfunctions impact 23% of women and 31% of men.

    Sexual dysfunctions refer to any problems that prevent a person or couple from satisfying sex.


    Common sexual difficulties include

    Pain during sex

    Low sexual desire and arousal

    Erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation

    Orgasm difficulties

    Compulsive sexual behaviour/hypersexuality/sex addiction

    Performance anxiety

     Intrusive thoughts and memories

    How can sex therapy, sex education, and sex coaching help?

    A healthy and fulfilling sex life is possible.  Sex therapy can help in the following ways

    Provide sex education so that you can better understand sex and pleasure

    Identify and address underlying causes of sexual issues

    Improve communication about sex

    Learn to communicate sexual interests and desires

    Practice relaxation and cognitive strategies

    Support exploration of desires and interests including polyamory, open relationships, kinks and BDSM

    Challenge thoughts causing guilt and shame

    What to expect?

    Sex therapy is psychotherapy to treat sexual difficulties and help you reconnect with your sexuality. You will spend time in session talking about your experiences, thoughts, and emotions. They will likely provide education to help you better understand sex and intimacy and offer coping strategies or exercises to try. 

    A sex therapist will never have sexual relations with you, show you how to have sex with anyone, or watch you having sex.

    Sometimes, a sex therapist might encourage you to meet with a doctor to rule out any physical or medical causes of the difficulties that you are experiencing. 

    Is Sex Therapy Couple’s Therapy?

    Sex therapy is not couples therapy. Sex therapy can be done with couples and it can also be done with individuals. If you are in a relationship and feel comfortable bringing your partner, this can help to strengthen the relationship and challenge any shame or embarrassment that you might be feeling. However, a partner is not required for sex therapy to be effective. In fact, many individuals attend sex therapy on their own, while they are not in a relationship.
