Sex
Therapy

Most doctors and psychotherapists have little or no sex therapy training. Psychosexual therapy is my area of expertise, having undergone specialised, accredited training in the UK. I am very comfortable talking about and addressing any sexual issue or concern that may be affecting your quality of life. I am Kink, LGBTQI and Non-Monogamy friendly.

As a talk therapist, my sex therapy sessions do not include any form of touching or removal of clothing. The initial intake session will consist of contracting and some investigative questions before listening and understanding what has brought the client into the room. In the next few sessions, I will undertake a more thorough and detailed history intake, where we look at all the different areas that have shaped your sexuality, your sexual attitude and your sexual expression.

We finish the history intake with a formulation feedback which identifies how a sexual problem may have been formed and is maintained and whether it is organic or psychological in nature. Clients already begin to experience a sense that knots are beginning to loosen and unravel when this information is collected and mirrored back to them.

Therapy then continues with treatment programmes over an average of 10 to 15 sessions that are individualised for every client, although some clients may stay for up to 30 or more sessions. Therapy progression depends on your willingness to do the work. It is a commitment which can bring up difficult emotions in or after some of the sessions but you are always safely held and we work at a pace that is comfortable for you.

There is a set of behavioural tasks which are given as homework in between sessions which may involve mindful self-touch, masturbatory exercises or maybe some journaling. There are different lines of intervention depending on the nature the sexual problem. My therapeutic style is to use an integrative approach to help the client heal from any negative sexual messages or experiences that are holding them back from a healthy expression of their sexual self.
