Sex therapy is a specialized type of counseling or psychotherapy. Through sex therapy, you can address concerns about sexual function, sexual feelings and intimacy - either in individual therapy or in therapy with a partner. Sex therapy can be an effective resource for adults of any age, gender or sexual orientation.
Partners often experience a lack of desire for sex with each other. This, contrary to popular belief, is quite normal. It is a sign that the couple is ready for a change that can restore their interest in sex and connection once again.
Sex therapy with couples is focused on helping the couple to achieve a healthy sexual relationship. This is sometimes accomplished by employing strategies designed to help the couple engage in activities that promote closeness and intimacy. However therapy can also help the couple establish more autonomy and separateness between the partners, often creating a new interest in each other and enhancing their desire.
Sex therapy can also be employed to help individuals with sexual issues such as:
- Lack of desire
- Painful sex
- Gender identity issues
- Erectile dysfunction
- Premature ejaculation
- Aging and sexuality
- Compulsive sexual behavior
- Sexual disorders or dysfunctions
- Male sexual health
- Female sexual health
