The New Sex And Couples Therapy
What I offer my clients is the latest and most effective form of sex and couples therapy. Relationships are about physical, emotional and spiritual intimacy and sex is the most rewarding way humans express all three. Our bodies help us get physically intimate, but it's our heads that enable us to go deeper and higher. Unless you have a serious medical condition that affects sexual function, your sexual or relationship problems are unlikely to be just physical.
Traditional methods of sex therapy and couples counselling keep sexual problems and relationship issues in different boxes. You might even need to see a different therapist for each! This is less effective and potentially more expensive.
If you have a sexual problem in your relationship it probably reflects how close you and your partner are right now. And if you have other problems in your relationship, you probably aren't having great sex. Addressing your sexual problem means working on your intimacy. If intimacy improves, your sex life will benefit.
Many therapists believe relationships are determined by childhood and family problems that we re-enact with our adult partners. But relationships are primarily about learning to grow ourselves in partnership with another person. Your sexual or relationship problem may have its origins in the past, but you need to fix it now, in the present.

Whatever the issue that you want to address, the most important step is to call a therapist to talk about it.
