About Sex Therapy
Sex therapy is a form of talk therapy that aims to help people resolve symptoms and issues pertaining to sexual function, performance anxiety and relationship issues. A sex therapist should be a licensed psychologist, social worker or professional counselor with specialized training in addressing the psychological and social components that contribute to and maintain symptoms.
Your sex therapist should work with allied professionals including primary care physicians, gynecologists and urologists to address any biological factors. Sex therapy is not sex surrogacy and should never include physical contact between therapist and client.
No. Sex therapy is a type of counseling that can help individuals and couples address a wide range of sexual issues, from performance anxiety to low libido, and everything in between. One common misconception about sex therapy is that it is only for married couples, but this is not the case. Regardless of your relationship status, sex therapy can be an effective tool for addressing sexual issues and improving your overall sexual well-being.
Sex therapy can be particularly helpful for individuals who are not in a committed relationship. Single people may struggle with issues such as sexual shame or difficulty establishing intimacy with new partners. Sex therapy can provide a safe and non-judgmental space to explore these issues and develop strategies for building healthy sexual relationships.
Whether you are single, dating, engaged, married, or in a non-traditional relationship, sex therapy can provide you with the tools and support you need to improve your sexual well-being and overall quality of life.
It's essential to ensure that you receive the best possible treatment. A good sex therapist should be someone you feel comfortable with, who can listen to your concerns without judgment, and who provides a safe and supportive environment for you to explore your sexuality.
One of the most critical factors to consider when selecting a sex therapist is their credentials. Ensure that the therapist you choose has appropriate training and licensure to practice sex therapy. It's also essential to find a therapist who specializes in the issues you're dealing with, such as low sexual desire, performance anxiety, or relationship problems.
The Center for Intimacy, Connection, and Change (CICC) is an excellent choice for qualified sex therapists. They have experience in dealing with a range of sexual issues and are committed to providing compassionate and non-judgmental care to their clients. Finding the right sex therapist requires research, patience, and trust. Working with a qualified sex therapist can help you build confidence, improve communication, and deepen intimacy with your partner.
The length of sex therapy depends on the specific issue, intensity, duration, relationship status and your level of distress. For some people, the path to improvement can be established in a few sessions through limited information and specific suggestions. Many people see improvement in as little as 4 sessions and seek to continue treatment in an effort to further their progress and to ensure that solutions are long-lasting.
