Sex Therapy with Toronto Sex Therapist Joan Marsman

What You Can Expect in Sex Therapy

Sex therapy is a unique specialization in the field of counseling and psychotherapy that provides a supportive and respectful atmosphere where individuals and couples can talk about sexual and relationship issues with a professional who is knowledgeable and comfortable with this area of life.

Sex TherapyAre you concerned about your sexual life? My clients are people who are concerned about issues such as:

  • Low sexual desire
  • Painful intercourse
  • Orgasm difficulties
  • Erectile difficulties
  • Rapid ejaculation
  • Sexual dissatisfaction
  • Sexual abuse
  • Impact of illness or injury
  • Sexual intimacy after an affair

Sex therapy is typically a short-term treatment approach directed specifically toward problems of sexual functioning. During the initial session you will be invited to share your own interpretation of why you are seeking sex therapy. You will be asked to discuss how and when your concerns developed, how they affect you and what changes you would like to make.

To help formulate solutions, you will be invited to share your sexual history, reflect on your sexual past and to explore what being sexual means to you. You will be encouraged to discuss the influences on your sexual development and to begin to identify the resources you need to resolve your concerns

Therapy may integrate books and/or videos that are designed for sex therapy and treatment in between sessions. Individuals and couples will be encouraged to actively participate in their treatment by doing exercises at home to improve communication and comfort with sexual intimacy.
