Sex Counseling

Sex counseling provides a safe space for addressing personal sexual issues and enabling positive change. It helps clarify questions or problems related to sexuality, facilitating discussions on topics often associated with shame, taboo, or fear. By reflecting on and understanding one's own sexual behavior and experiences, especially when there are blockages or problems, counseling can identify the causes. This understanding allows for the development of appropriate strategies for change.

What happens in Sex Counseling?

For most people, their sexuality is a very intimate and sensitive area of life. When experienced as fulfilling, it can be an expression of pleasure, joy, closeness and connection. When experienced as problematic, however, it can also be a source of great suffering. Sex counseling aims to provide a safe space for addressing personal sexual issues and enabling positive change. It aims to facilitate discussions about topics that may be associated with shame, taboo, or fear.

Sex counseling is about clarifying questions or problems related to sexuality. It offers the opportunity to reflect on and understand one’s own sexual behavior and experiences, especially when there are blockages, or when one’s own sexuality is perceived as problematic. A sexual problem can have many causes. They can arise due to physical changes and illnesses (e.g., hormonal changes, skin or cancer diseases, diabetes, neurological diseases, etc.), but also as an expression or consequence of psychological conflicts and relationship problems. Therefore, it is important to understand the individual development of a sexual problem to derive appropriate strategies for change and action. Sex counseling can be done with an individual setting as well as with a couple.

Sex counseling can help with:

  • General sexual dissatisfaction
  • Lack of sexual desire

  • Problems related to erection
