Because there are so many ways that we experience sex, I find it tricky to stick to one particular therapeutic approach and tend to use an eclectic mix. Generally in my practice, I tend to suggest interventions that draw from Compassion Focused Therapy, Relational Life Therapy, some Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Experiential therapy and Creative and Experiential Arts Therapy.
