One of the most common reasons clients book counselling with me, is around issues with sexual performance anxiety, self confidence, effective couple communication, and managing intimacy. Being a sex therapist means that I have attended special training on sexual problems, intimacy and how to improve relationships when sexual issues are the problem.
I find that many issues require some amount of planning or problem solving, talking about options without fear of embarrassment. I see opposite and same-sex couples, with many issues being the same although there are also many differences. I view all individuals as having an ability to develop masculine or feminine skills, with research supporting that being both skilled in masculine and feminine skills are helpful for long term relationships in both men and women.
