What is Sex Therapy?
Sex therapy is not just about sex itself, but rather the factors that affect the desire to and enjoyment of sex and other intimate behaviors. Sex is often a very important part of a relationship. Both partners typically want the comfort and connection that comes from sex and intimacy. But there are often issues that stand in the way. For example:
Someone may have trouble with anxiety during or about sex.
Someone may have trouble with a trauma of their past.
Someone may feel like they are not experiencing the deep bond that they need to desire sex.
Someone may feel like their relationship is not intimate enough outside of sex.
The ability to desire and find enjoyment of sex is a part of sex therapy. But it is also about intimacy and love. Part of the process is repairing, restoring, and strengthening the entire relationship. It is also about learning to experience, accept, and enjoy non-sexual intimacy.
There are many factors that affect the more intimate side of a relationship, some of which are related to you both as a couple, and some of which are related to each partner as an individual. Sex therapy is holistic in its approach to identifying what the relationship needs to progress, and treating them accordingly.
What is a Sex Therapist?
Sex therapy is a component of couples counseling. It is led by psychotherapists with training into therapeutic techniques that enhance overall relationship satisfaction. Our couples therapists at Flourish Psychology can provide sex therapy as part of its overall relationship counseling service, or as a standalone service for partners that feel they need to enhance the intimate side of their relationship.
Sex therapy can also be completed on an individual level. It can be especially useful for men or women that struggle with anxiety during sex, trauma recovery, and other mental health issues that get in the way of feeling more intimate.
