Frequently Asked Questions
Sex therapy is a specialized form of psychotherapy that addresses and resolves sexual concerns, difficulties, or dysfunctions. It helps individuals and couples improve their sexual health and satisfaction by providing education, communication techniques, and personalized therapeutic interventions.
Sex therapy can benefit individuals and couples experiencing a wide range of sexual issues, including low libido, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, painful intercourse, difficulty achieving orgasm, sexual traumas, or relationship problems related to sex. People of all genders, orientations, and ages can find support and guidance through sex therapy.
The duration of sex therapy varies depending on the individual or couple's specific concerns and goals. Some issues may be resolved in a few sessions, while others may require longer ongoing therapy. It's important to remember that progress may be gradual, and open communication with the therapist can help determine the appropriate length of treatment.
Yes, sex counselling can help with issues related to sex drive. A decrease in sex drive, also known as low libido, can have various causes, including physical, emotional, or psychological factors. A qualified sex counsellor or therapist can work with individuals or couples to identify the underlying causes of low libido and develop personalized strategies to address the issue.
During sex counselling sessions, the therapist may explore stress, relationship dynamics, self-esteem, body image, and medical conditions contributing to a decreased sex drive. The therapist may also provide education about sexual response, arousal, and techniques to enhance intimacy and connection.
Asking your partner to consider attending sex therapy can be a delicate conversation. Here are some suggestions on how to approach the topic with sensitivity and openness:
- Choose the right time and place: Find a calm and private moment when you both have time to converse without distractions or interruptions.
- Be honest about your feelings: Share your concerns and feelings about your sexual relationship. Express that you believe sex therapy could benefit both of you and that you're bringing up the topic because you care about the relationship and want to improve your intimacy.
- Use "I" statements: Focus on your experiences and feelings rather than blaming or accusing your partner. For example, say, "I've been feeling disconnected during our intimate moments, and I think sex therapy could help us reconnect and understand each other better," instead of, "You never satisfy me, and we need therapy to fix our sex life."
- Provide information: Explain what sex therapy is, its benefits, and how it can help address the issues you're experiencing in your relationship. You can share articles or resources about sex therapy to help your partner understand the process.
- Be receptive to their feelings and concerns: Your partner may feel defensive, worried, or uncertain about sex therapy. Listen to their concerns and be empathetic. Reassure them that seeking treatment is a sign of strength and commitment to the relationship, not failure.
