Life is messy and imperfect. Sexuality and identity is a lifelong journey. So many of us are limited in our exploration due to shame, stigma, or lack of sexuality education. I believe in a sex-positive approach which acknowledges and celebrates the diversity of human sexuality, identity and expression. When we are informed, empowered and validated, we live happier and more authentic lives.

Sexuality is multidimensional that engages all areas of life: mental, emotional, physical and social. Understanding the psychology and the culture through which sexuality is experienced is integral to finding well being and happiness. Shame, guilt, anxiety, as well as other psychological or medical conditions, can profoundly affect how we experience sexuality and deeply impact or attach itself to the complexities of our personal history and life experiences.

I am a relationship counselor and sex therapist. Couples do not always realise that sexual issues are often the main problem for their unhappiness. We are all taught reading, writing and math at school but very few people have received proper sex education or relationship advice. Most areas of conflict are lack of romance, companionship and fun. Expectations are often unrealistic and after being together for some time couples may encounter a mismatch in sex drives, one partner wants sex more than the other. This desire discrepancy is not abnormal but this conflict can end up a very negative effect on the relationship.

For many years I worked for the public and private sector (management/policy and clinical areas) dealing with a wide range of concerns including HIV; sexual health; sex therapy; cancer; addictions; trauma; depression and anxiety.
Many people struggle to incorporate healthy lifestyles into day to day living. Most of us know the behaviours that are recommended however, there are many challenges - structural, economic and personal that impact on us on a day to day basis. The end result can be a feeling of being overwhelmed and behaviours and thoughts that we feel we cannot control. Although it is not always possible to change structures we can build personal resilience and learn to control thoughts, feelings and behaviours. I offer services to assist you to achieve your goals - by gaining control over your feelings, and building resilience in how you react.

Sex Therapy Counsellors

Who is sex therapy for?

Sex problems are common in relationships. Many people want a better sex life and want to feel loved and desired by their partner. It is difficult for couples to resolve sexual problems on their own because people often feel ashamed to talk about their sexual desires fearing they are not normal, when in fact a very broad range of preferences and behaviors are normal. A sex therapist can help clarify this and other matters.

Why do people need sex therapy?

Many people do not know how to talk about their erotic needs or their emotional needs, both of which are addressed in sex therapy. Couples often live with sexual difficulties for years before seeking help, and in that time, partners may experience so much disappointment and alienation that they may fear their problems mean they are incompatible. Once people experience disappointment, it is difficult to find resolution without help.

What happens in sex therapy?

People have many misconceptions about what takes place in sex therapy. First, it is a form of talk therapy in which partners discuss their sexual concerns; it does not involve touching or physical exploration of any kind. Sex therapy typically helps couples get comfortable talking to each other about sex so that, in the privacy of their home life, they can openly discuss their sexual desires and make decisions about what they want to do. Couples are typically assigned activities to do at home that build intimacy skills.

What kinds of problems do sex therapists treat?

Very often, partners differ in their degree of sexual desire and struggle over how often to have sex. Or they may have fights about porn use or have difficulty connecting sexually after one partner is unfaithful. Men may have problems with premature ejaculation. Women may find themselves struggling to become aroused or to achieve an orgasm. Sometimes partners feel like they have lost the sense of attraction to their partner. These are all common issues dealt with in sex therapy.
