SEX THERAPY

Seeking to control any relationship drains the vitality out of the relationship.

LET'S TALK SEX THERAPY

Specific problems may include relationship conflicts, loss of intimacy, and desire discrepancies between partners.  A sex therapist is a professional who, in addition to his/her basic training and qualifications, has extensive training in all aspects of human sexuality and the treatment of sexual dysfunctions and disorders.

 

Sexual health depends on both psychogenic (in the mind), and biogenic (in the body), functioning. Many sexual concerns result from internal conflicts, something in the mind that is preventing the body from optimal functioning.

 

There may be physiological anomalies that contribute to difficulty in functioning and with the population enjoying a greater life span, there are health issues that come with aging that often require attention. Today there is the added challenge of the individual and/or couple to be present in a manner that is sufficient to enjoy a satisfying sexual relationship.

It is not an uncommon complaint that couples are distracted and have trouble shifting gears to get away from the pressures of daily living. Unresolved family and relationship issues may interfere as well. It is vital to determine the nature of the problem, whether physical, physiological, emotional, or relational.

While sex therapy employs many of the same principles as other modalities, there are specific techniques available for various sexual problems. Sessions may involve the individual and/or couple. Unlike other therapy experiences, sex therapy may involve an explicit exploration of sexual concerns. Sex therapy does not include touching or the use of surrogates.
