Psychosexual psychotherapy is a therapeutic model that offers the opportunity to heal, recover, explore and expand your understanding of your sexual trauma, sensual/sexual beliefs, sexual identity/diversity or sexual mechanisms and how they have affected your relationship with your self and others. It is a journey of reclaiming ownership of your body and sexual choices by developing a sensual and sexual pathway tailored just for you.
Sex therapy challenges conditions like erectile dysfunctions, vaginismus, hypo or hyper libido + many other physical and cognitive conditions which may be a result of medical factors. All can be worked through using a homeodynamic model of psychosexual therapy that brings the body back to homeostasis and the feeling of completeness.
Recovery from Sexual abuse and sexual violence is a common reason that clients attend psychosexual therapy. Unwanted sexual experiences can understandably lead to traumatic triggers. These triggers can leave the survivors avoiding any sexually charged dynamic or adversely, becoming overtly sexualized as if re-enacting the abuse and shame.
I work sensitively with child sexual abuse survivors who wish to recover their sexual lives from complex trauma by providing safety and stabilisation resources throughout the sessions. These resources allow for the development of your sexual journey free from the unwanted images, odours, sounds and feelings related to the trauma.
For two years I worked with a charity: www.mankindcounselling.org that supports men and their partners to heal and process unwanted sexual experiences and abuse. Sexual abuse amongst men in many instances is unreported due to shame, guilt, and masculine bravado.
My training as a Psychosexual therapist followed my exploration into Tantra & Taoist sexual philosophies both contemporary and historical.
Sacred sexuality has lent great gifts to society in the forms of developing a conscious connection with our bodies through diet, touch, sound and other sensate focused techniques that aids healing and trust-building to support the body and emotions to be intimate with ourselves and partners. I endeavour to embody my psychosexual therapeutic model with a contemporary twist and pass on to consenting clients the gifts of conscious sacred sexuality teachings in a non-religious/ non-spiritual format.
Sexual and sensual experiences when met freely develop the healing energy to change the neural pathways of the brain. I have worked with many couples that have sought marriage guidance, and single clients wishing to explore, to re-romanticize, re-sexualise and re-energise their relationships, with much success.
Another reason that clients seek out sex therapy is to explore and make sense of their sexual desire(s) of BDSM/kink and fetish play and how to communicate their desires to their partners. A willingness to weave a new non-judgemental sexual landscape must be at the heart of your future relational focus.
