What Is Sex Therapy?
Sex Therapy involves a range of therapeutic processes and exercises which can be used to initiate, restore and enrich both the individual's sexuality and/or the sexual components of a relationship. The goal is to create healthier sex positive spaces in your life that support sexual self-empowerment; expand your knowledge and understanding of sex, sexuality, and gender; create healthier experiences through effective communication and setting healthy boundaries; develop to your full potential.
Sex therapy is based on the guiding belief that:
Sex Therapy helps people learn more about their body, their ability and feel at ease with the range of sexual feelings. Developing physical, sexual, mental, psychological, emotional and spiritual well-being contributes to a healthy sexual functioning. Many people feel uninformed about how sexual responses can affect the enjoyment of sex.
Sexual Intimacy is more than physical sex. Sexual intimacy can strengthen the closeness and caring bond between partners. Sexual intimacy is about being comfortable making sexual requests. This is especially important in today's pressured society. Dissatisfaction with the sexual aspects of a couple relationship and the loss of shared intimacy and trust may lead to feelings which threaten the total relationship.
