What is SEX THERAPY?

Seventy five to eighty percent of all adult males and females experience sexual difficulties in their lives. These include lack of desire, difficulty reaching orgasm, problems maintaining arousal, vaginal pain and general sexual dissatisfaction. These problems can be caused by anxiety and stress, lack of sexual knowledge and/or experience, childhood trauma, relational difficulties, and physical problems.

Sex Therapy focuses on sexual concerns or issues . It is a unique and specialized form of professional counseling designed to help women and men address their concerns about sexuality, sexual function, and sexual expression.

Like any therapeutic experience, sex therapy involves talking, listening and education. The trained therapist works with the client in a private and confidential setting to clarify their particular issues.

Therapist / Client Relationship

The relationship between the client and the therapist is a vital part of therapy. In general, people come to therapy to either cope with or evoke some kind of change. The client-therapist relationship is unique in that confidentiality and empathy are an absolute part to the process. Often, friends and family members unconsciously offers words of wisdom, support or advice that keep people stuck in debilitating patterns.


Therapists are trained to maintain objectivity without placing blame or utilizing personal judgment.In choosing an appropriate therapist for yourself, it is important to look for a sense of comfort and trust within the therapeutic relationship.
