What is Sex Therapy or Therapy for Intimacy



What is Sex Therapy or Therapy for Intimacy

Are you looking for help with your sex life? Are you wanting therapy to improve your intimacy? Are you really confused as to what sex therapy or intimacy therapy is? Do you want to get help, but it seems so overwhelming and intimidating that you are afraid to even reach out?

Sex therapy, or therapy for intimacy, can have so many meaning that it becomes meaningless. What is it that people are actually after when they say they are coming in for therapy to help improve their intimacy or sex? Tammy Fontana at All in the Family Counselling Centre actually recommends for clients to reach out and schedule an initial intake to help define and shape what that would mean for them.

There is no single defining meaning of what sex therapy means. In fact, one of the powerful aspects of therapy is that each approach is customized to the unique issues that an individual or couple are challenged with.

Each couple is need for therapy is unique based on what they want to achieve and their current level of relationship, communication and emotional skills.Sexual education and understanding of sex also impacts the requirements a couple need

A therapy solution is developed and custoized for a couple based on the history of their relationship, their own individual history and their own skills and knowledge around talking about sex, feelings and saying what they like.

It would be a mistake to think that there is a one size fits all to help people with their intimacy and sexual relationships. Instead, what many people  mean when they say they are having problems with their sex life, it’s that they are not having a sex life they want and enjoy.. They want something different. What people enjoy is unique, there is no one size fits all. This is part of hte therapy to help people accept and communicate that to each other, what they like. Most people don’t want more of what they have: they don’t want more bad, disconnecting, unsatisfying sex. Sex therapy helps people learn how to get what they want through self-awareness, self-reflection, education, communication skills and emotional regulation skills.

Sex therapy is a way to help people learn how to express what they want, increase their knowledge, become better educated and informed about how adults have sex, talk about sex, express sex, and ultimately use intimacy in their relationship to produce feelings of closeness, of connection, of belonging, of feeling loved and accepted.
