Sex Therapy is a unique specialization in the field of counseling for couples and individuals where clients can talk with a professional about sexual and relationship issues in their lives. Sex therapy is a treatment approach directed specifically toward problems of sexual functioning. Your therapist may ask you to discuss
- How and when your concerns developed
- How your concerns impact you
- What changes you would like to make
In a supportive, caring environment, you will be encouraged to discuss the influences on your sexual development and to begin to identify the resources you need to resolve your concerns.
Other elements of your therapy may include books and/or videos specific to sex therapy. Your therapist will invite you to try out exercises at home aimed at improving communication and intimacy – both emotional and physical.
