Sex Therapy Sydney

Are you in Sydney and having issues with your sex life? We can help..

A healthy, happy sex life with our partner is very important – both to each individual, and the relationship as a whole.

Most relationships begin with passion and excitement, often with each person head over heels for each other and hopeful of where it could lead. But once you’re settled and secure in a relationship, difficulties can arise when trying to navigate each person’s different needs, wants and desires. Sex connects us with our partner in a deeper way, so it’s no surprise that sex and intimacy can take many forms; lust, love, fun, passion, excitement, desire and more.

When our sex and lovemaking is great, it can provide the glue that keeps us feeling deeply and physically connected with each other, enabling us to better weather many other kinds of relationship storms.

Sex is one of the most intimate things we can do. When sex isn’t an issue, it forms a small but positive part of a relationship (about 15% – 20%). However, when it is an issue for one or both people, it can wreak havoc in relationship (from 50% – 75%). Sex therapy Sydney.

Issues with intimacy and sex can be closely tied to other issues in the relationship, so it can be beneficial to go to a professional with knowledge about both sex therapy and relationship counselling.

Whether we’d like to admit it or not, the partner with the least desire for sex always controls the frequency and quality of sex.

Types of sexual therapy where we can help


If you are having sexual issues, you’re not alone

Sex and intimacy issues are becoming more common for couples.  We have specialist Sex therapists in Sydney.

If you’re struggling with intimacy or sexual issues in your relationship, you’re not alone. Help is available.

Research has shown that close to 45% of couples have issues with sexual desire, arousal, orgasm or satisfaction.

Sexual and intimacy issues are deeply personal. In increasing numbers, couples are reaching out to professionals to help with sexual issues, which has caused demand for sex therapists to be trained specifically in these and the surrounding issues.

Even though it is easy to assume to the contrary, sexual issues are rarely a simple performance problem with a simple cure. They are usually caused from a combination physical, psychological, and relationship components and can result in much emotional suffering and distress.

Although sex is a common topic for social jokes, in reality most couples don’t really talk much about what they do and don’t like with each other, and very few people are actually educated on how to have a healthy lively sex life.
