Client’s who experience concerns with arousal, performance, guilt and shame, as well as knowledge and understanding of one’s own body are likely to have some benefit from a sexologist. Although many functions of couple’s relationship satisfaction as well as individual personal satisfaction may be related to overall sexual health and well- being. Increased, decreased, mismatched and discrepant levels of desire or interest in sexual intimacy may result in the overall relationship satisfaction or quality of living. Sexuality issues are not age or gender specific and can occur at any age and with men, women, and transgender.
Additionally concerns about sexual trauma in one’s background, medical conditions that affect one’s sexuality, sexual pain disorders, concerns about gender identity or sexual orientation, and issues around sexual compulsivity or addiction are also further concerns for discussion with a Sex Therapist.
