So, what is sex therapy, and what do psychosexual therapists do?

Sex therapy combines counselling and psychotherapeutic principles like cognitive, behavioural, and systematic intervention strategies with the study of human sexuality to address issues in the realm of sexuality, sexual function, and concerns. The primary role of a psychosexual therapist involves providing counselling and psychotherapy, education, and referral for their clients. Counselling and psychotherapy involve the client and therapist working together to address any sexual issues or concerns they may be experiencing, such as low desire for sex, arousal, orgasm, satisfaction issues and overall sexual well-being to achieve the client’s desired outcomes. Education aims to provide the client with knowledge about various facets of their sexual issues and concerns. Lastly, it is the therapist's responsibility to refer the client to a health professional to help address the client's sexual issues, should they need it.
