Sex Therapy for Couples

Sexuality is a natural, healthy and positive part about being a couple. Sometimes, throughout a relationship, couples may experience a disconnect in their sex lives or one partner may be suffering from a sexual dysfunction. Attending sex therapy sessions for couples can help identify underlying causes of friction on your relationship and help you and your partner get back on track by communicating and understanding each other better.

Couples sex therapy helps address a wide range of problems relating to lack of intimacy, sexual satisfaction, sexual desire discrepancy, arousal and orgasm difficulties, and difference in preferences. When a couple is faced with sexual problems in their relationship, many feel stuck, frustrated or distanced from each other. This often leads to disagreements and a negative cycle of blaming each other or themselves. By attending sex therapy for couples, a wide range of sexual problems couples face can be resolved.

A large component of sex therapy sessions involves creating a healthy fulfilling sex life for the future. In order to accomplish this, couples need to talk and be honest with one another, seek to understand each other’s perspective, and be patient and open. Together with the assistance of a certified sex therapist, you and your partner can create a long-lasting connection that is satisfying!

Depending on your circumstances, there may be one or more goals for your sex therapy sessions, which may include:

  • Increasing sexual satisfaction for both partners
  • Improving communication with each other about sex
  • Developing a deeper understanding of each other
  • Aiding each partner in improving sexual confidence and sense of sexual identity

Some of the most common reasons that couples seek sex therapy are to address issues such as:

  • Erectile difficulty
  • Difficulty achieving an orgasm
  • Painful intercourse
  • Premature ejaculation
  • Lack of or low sexual desire
  • Self-esteem or body issues
  • Conflicting values or religious beliefs
  • Sexual orientation confusion
  • Differences in sexual preferences
  • Sexual anxiety
  • Trauma from previous sexual experience

Your first sex therapy sessions will begin with a detailed assessment with your therapist asking you both about your sexual, physical, personal, and couple histories to gain insight and begin to explore what may be causing your difficulty.
