All relationships will experience difficult times. Feeling disconnected from your partner can feel very lonely, scary, disappointing or frustrating. A relationship counsellor helps couples feel connected again and able to effectively resolve issues by improving communication skills and managing any hurt, resentment and betrayal caused by conflict. Most relationship difficulties can be resolved with the right intervention.
Sex Therapy focuses on sex, sexuality and intimacy issues between couples. Sex therapists assist couples to identify and communicate their sexual needs and concerns, and provide specific skills and tasks to help them achieve their goals. A sex therapist is trained in identifying and treating sexual dysfunctions, which include: arousal, orgasm and erection difficulties; desire issues; performance anxiety; painful sex; lack of intimacy; and infidelity and affairs.
