Sex Therapy

Confidential Counselling for Sexual Health Concerns

Many of us experience concerns related to our sexual health and functioning at some point in our lives. Sex therapy can be helpful for a range if sex-related issues. Sometimes it can be difficult to talk to the people closest to us about our concerns.

Our psychologists are here to listen and to help.

Sexual health is an important aspect of our general health. When we experience difficulties within our sex life, it can have a significant impact on our overall quality of life. This may have a lasting impact on us, our partners, or our relationships in general.

It is important to reach out for help from a professional who understands what you are going through.

We Can Help

Counselling & Education

Our psychologists provide treatment supported by the latest research findings in the sexual health field. We provide counselling & psychotherapy for a broad range of sexual health concerns, sex behaviours, and problems related to sex drive, including:

  • Loss of sexual desire
  • Loss of sexual arousal
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Premature ejaculation
  • Pain with intercourse
  • Compulsive sexual behaviours
  • Fear and/or performance anxiety over sexual activity or contact
  • Vaginismus (inability to have penetrative intercourse due to tightening of the pelvic floor muscles)
  • Changes in sexual functioning related to aging, medical conditions, and/or mental health conditions.

Your therapist will help you develop strategies to resolve sexual issues (such as problems with sexual arousal, desire, pain, or orgasm difficulties). Therapy can help improve your sexual vocabulary and communication. As you gain knowledge about your sexual health and new ways of experiencing sex, you may notice enhanced arousal, sexual desire, and sense of eroticism. You may learn ways to have safer sex, or new sexual techniques depending on your goals for therapy.
