Do I need sex therapy?
Many people will seek therapy for mental health, marriage, finances, and children. Sex is usually one area people do not think about seeing a therapist for or maybe too embarrassed to see someone. Sex is a basic need for people and having a healthy sex life is important. Sex therapy is not just talking about sex, but often includes sex education, trauma healing, and cognitive distortions around sex.
Should I see a therapist alone or with my partner?
That depends on the problem and your level of comfortability. Individuals often seek sex therapy due to not being in a relationship and overcoming personal difficulties with sex or couples may seek sex therapy if one or both partners suffer from a disorder and it affects the relationship. There can be many causes for sexual problems in a relationship including communication, trust, infidelity, childhood sexual abuse, and physical problems. These can be addressed in couples counseling in conjunction with sex therapy.
What if I am not sure of any problems?
Sex therapy is not only for individuals or couples with sexual dysfunction but also for people who want to increase the quality of their sexual life, they want to understand their partner and get educated, they want to explore kinks, polyamory, increase intimacy or just enjoy sex more.
