Who Needs Sex Therapy?

Couples and individuals may decide that they need sex therapy. In some cases, this might be to work on a particular issue or to help strengthen the bond that they have with someone special. Not all sex therapy sessions revolve around sexual problems and issues. In fact, many people find that undergoing this type of therapy helps them to become closer to that special someone or allow themselves to enjoy pleasure.

Using a holistic approach, clients will be encouraged to speak about their experiences. While there might be some shame and embarrassment when discussing these personal issues, communication is kept open so everyone knows where the boundaries are.

What Does Sex Therapy Cover?

Sex therapy covers a wide range of topics. Every couple or individual is different, which means different topics will need to be explored. However, some of the most common topics are:
  • Abuse or trauma (Emotional, physical, sexual, or verbal)
  • Mismatched sex drive
  • Performance anxiety
  • Fear of intimacy
  • Low sexual desire 
  • Delayed or premature ejaculation

Whether you wish to have a sex therapy session on your own or with your partner, you can. The choice is entirely yours. If you are in a relationship but you do not wish to bring your partner with you, it’s perfectly ok. You can feel at ease, talking about any topics you wish.
