Sex therapy is the treatment of sexual dysfunction, such as premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, low libido, unwanted sexual feelings, sexual addiction, painful sex, or a lack of sexual confidence, assisting people who are recovering from sexual assault, problems commonly caused by stress, tiredness and other environmental and relationship factors.
Sex therapist assist those experiencing problems in overcoming them, in doing so possibly regaining an active sex life ,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. Sex therapy is usually short term. The specific treatment plan depends on the issues to be addressed. I do not have sexual contact with clients, in the office or anywhere else.
Sexual coaching that involves physical contact isn’t considered part of mainstream sex therapy.
