Why Sex Therapy

Sex therapy can help a person or couple overcome a variety of sexual difficulties and challenges. Sex therapy is often helpful in the treatment of erectile dysfunction, even when physical factors are the principal cause.

Sexual difficulties, no matter what the cause, can strain your relationship. Frequently, a man with erectile problems experiences performance anxiety, which makes him reluctant to initiate sexual contact.

His partner may perceive this as rejection, which could trigger feelings of frustration and resentment.

Sex therapy, with our experienced, certified sex therapist, can help a couple overcome these feelings and re-establish intimacy.

How Does Therapy Support Other Treatments?

Sexual issues are multi-dimensional; arising out of biological, psychological, behavioral and social factors. Counselling can optimize the efficacy of medical interventions for sexual disorders.

Our Approach to Sex Therapy

Sex therapy helps individuals and couples to talk about and resolve sexual issues and in turn have greater sexual pleasure.

Through the process of sex therapy clients develop personal awareness and effective communication skills regarding their sexual needs and interests.

Sex therapy explores the deeper individual and relational dynamics.

Often clients get stuck in a loop of disappointment, distress, and catastrophizing which only serves to reinforce hopelessness.

Sex therapy provides a method for deconstructing the problem and identifying the route to a process-based solution.

We help clients to identify their real time state of emotional regulation and to use this awareness in developing a range of focusing skills. Through counselling clients gain a much better appreciation for the emotional, psychological and relational forces that influence their process of sexual expression.

Calgary Sex Therapy FAQ

Sex therapy helps individuals and couples to talk about and resolve sexual issues and in turn have greater sexual pleasure.

Sex Therapy Duration and Process

We typically suggest between one and three counselling sessions to explore the underlying dynamics that sustain the problem and identify a solution based process.

Often, clients will have their needs met through these limited number of sessions. For those with a history of an attachment injury or trauma, longer term counselling may be helpful. The process always involves a feedback loop between the client and the therapist with a focus on getting the client(s) to where they want to go.

In working with couples in sex therapy we typically include an individual session with each partner. This allows an opportunity for each partner to consult and identify those areas that are most difficult to discuss.

Couples benefit from communication skill development and enhanced problem solving and conflict resolution. Through the process of sex therapy both individuals and couples benefit from a greater sense of compassion for themselves and each other. Clients become much clearer about their necessary conditions for great sex.
