I’m often asked how I came to be a sex therapist. I knew in my early twenties that I wanted to be a psychotherapist as I’m a good listener and I find the human psyche hugely interesting. It’s easy for me to be empathetic and non-judgmental and to quickly identify patterns in clients’ thoughts, feelings and actions. I’m good at helping people understand what is getting in their way of having what they want and I like providing encouragement and strategy for getting there. Being a therapist makes good use of my strengths and it is very meaningful for me to help in this particular way.
Over the years, I noticed that many of my depressed and anxious clients, or those here for general relationship work, wanted and/or needed to talk about sex. Sexual problems bleed over into the rest of the relationship and vice versa. I’ve always been comfortable talking about sex, so I started getting sex therapy training and working with my clients on the piece that seemed most pressing for them.
The process of becoming a Certified Sex Therapist takes a long time and many hours of study. As a fully certified sex therapist, I look forward to engaging with the full spectrum of your needs. Sexuality in its many forms – how it is perceived, negotiated, expressed, repressed, celebrated, avoided and just enjoyed is totally fascinating to me.
