If your relationship lacks intimacy, there are struggles with sexual dysfunction, or you’re experiencing difficulty communicating about any other issues, it might be time to speak to a therapist.
Sex therapy can provide you with the tools you need to heal and handle anything, like:
- Partners with different desires
- Processing past sexual trauma
- Exploring an open relationship
- Sexual function/dysfunction
- Inability to control sexual behavior
- Sexual orientation concerns
Couples will begin by talking through their general challenges, sexual history, and any background information relevant to the main issue at hand. Initial sex therapy sessions involve discussing concerns, creating a specific treatment plan, and deciding whether sessions should be individual or with partners together.
As therapy progresses, you will be given the tools you need to create a healthy sex life and find better ways to manage your sexual relationship in a supportive and nurturing environment.
New patients should be aware that sex therapy does not involve any type of physical contact or examination. If you need physical medical attention, you should contact your health physician.
- Sex therapy is a nurturing, safe space to explore:
- Emotional issues around sex
- Concerns around performance anxiety, pleasure, and sex education
- Different ways of communicating
- Slowing down and practicing mindfulness during intimate encounters
- Changing the way you interact (both sexually and nonsexually)
Therapists will also check for any underlying mental health issues that might be preventing a healthy sex life between couples.
