Sex Therapy and Sexual Health



Sex is a private matter that we often don’t talk about — both within the couple and outside the relationship. It’s one of the most intimate moments that couples share, and as such, it is often a highly emotional topic to broach. Nevertheless, many couples experience difficulties in sexual intimacy, and need to not only discuss it with their partner but seek support to navigate the challenges. This is where sex therapy can be helpful.

In and of itself, sex therapy can help communication between you and your partner. It’s a way of communicating your most basic passions and desires. And like all forms of communication, sex therapy is built on trust, openness and receptiveness.

Improving Sexual Health through Sex Therapy

People can have issues surrounding sex therapy for a number of reasons, ranging from early childhood experiences, to physical problems that affect sex drive, to long-term psychological wounds arising from sexual abuse. These issues are normal, and with the help of a trained Ottawa sex therapist the problem can be identified and fixed.

Don’t let feelings of shame, inadequacy or anger keep you from having a healthy and fulfilling sex life. If you want help, Capital Choice Counselling can put you in touch with some of the best sexual health experts in the country.
