How does Sex Therapy work?
At the root of Sex therapy is a study of thoughts and feelings. It’s much like any other therapy you experience, just with the topic of sex. We communicate between therapist and client(s) about your beliefs around sex, your thoughts and feelings about intimacy. We may talk about how you feel in your body. The therapist uses talk therapy to speak with you to explore your cognitions. Touching does not occur between therapist and client. Non sexual touch may be cued between two safe partners, with consent.
We focus on the physical relationship between two people in a relationship, identify the couple’s attitudes about sex and the sexual problem. From there, I’ll often recommend specific exercises to refocus the couple’s attention and expectations.
Specific objectives may include the following:
- Learning to eliminate and relax distractions
- Learning to communicate what you’d like in a positive way
- Learning nonsexual touching techniques
- Increasing or enhancing sexual stimulation
- Minimizing pain during intercourse
- Reducing stigma
- De-conditioning beliefs that are getting in your way of intimacy
If you would like to explore sex therapy, we want you to know that you aren’t alone in having sexual problems and that we can help. Just because people don’t always talk about sex, does not mean they don’t have it on their minds.
