Are you struggling with your relationships, perhaps you are feeling unsupported in life or without anyone who really understands you? Do you wish you had closer relationships, more people to share your innermost thoughts with, or more authentic relationships where people know the “real” you? I believe the relationships we form with others are not just the key to living a good and fulfilling life, but they are the bedrock for our other life successes… after all, how can we really achieve our true potential if we don’t have love and support from those around us?

Sometimes in life we get stuck in patterns which, though once useful ways of being and relating, have now outgrown their usefulness to us, perhaps beginning to get in our way even. Psychotherapy can offer both the space to express, grasp and understand these patterns and then the support and challenge to grow in ways which seem right for you. I draw on a range of sources to bring my curiosity to meet you as a whole person. I am interested in your thoughts, your feelings, your actions and what may be going on in your body as well as what may emerge in the here and now of our relationship.

As a psychosexual therapist I work with both individual clients and intimate partners (including polyamorous relationships) where the primary concern is a sexual function or a relationship issue. Some of the most common reasons for attending therapy might include erectile dysfunction, painful intercourse, premature or delayed ejaculation or difficulty achieving orgasm. Relationship issues I can help with include infidelity, desire discrepancy, compulsive sexual behaviours, conflict, communication difficulties. Sometimes couples wish to explore specific sexual interests such as kinks, or navigate how to open up their relationship.

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.
