Q. Can Sex Therapy really help me?
A. Research evidence shows that nearly all Sex Therapy clients report some benefit and most say they have been helped significantly.
Q. If I am in a relationship can I still attend alone?
A. Sexual dysfunctions are interrelated therefore it is not usual for Psychosexual Therapy to be as successful if only one partner attends. However each scenario is assessed and your Therapist will advise you personally on this.
Q. Can I pay extra for a sex surrogacy or sex coaching service?
A. No. It is so irritating for Psychosexual Therapists to get phone calls, emails or texts from people assuming we will sleep with them or perform sex acts with them. Please do not be ignorant to the fact these are sex surrogates who need no qualifications, no awarding body, no governing body, no insurance, no ethics and no guidance whereas we have ALL of the above.
Just to clarify:
A Sex Surrogate: Will perform sex acts with you for money.
A Sex Therapist: A fully qualified, licensed and insured clinical practitioner with at least 5 years training who will help you and/or your partner with any sexual dysfunction listed within the DSM with psychological intervention, clinical influence and psychotherapy; all guided with strict ethical guidelines.
