Psychosexual Therapy

 

Psychosexual issues are very common, but can still cause great distress, interrupting with self esteem, confidence, normal functioning and relationships.

As both Kate and Rima work integratively they look to understand problems in the context of social, cultural and family beliefs as they all impact on how one knows and understands their sexuality and psychosexual health. 

Sessions last fifty minutes and use a variety of techniques and theories including sharing and self-reflection, self-help tools, practical exercises to be done at home, sexual education, and increasing sexual self-confidence and comfort in sexuality or sexual relationships with the security of the therapeutic relationship supporting the work.

It's also important to discuss the history and client's personal understanding of the problem, to assess if there is need for intervention or further investigation from a GP, Sexual Health Screening, Urologist or Gynaecologist.

As a society we don’t talk openly about sex, which makes Psychosexual Therapy a unique place to have those conversations
