How Can We Help ?
We help you talk through your sexual issues in a safe space. We work with many different individual and couple sexual issues including:
- Sexual dysfunction – erectile difficulties, delayed or premature ejaculation, and painful intercourse (vaginismus).
- Negotiating an open or polyamorous relationship and helping you decide if it’s right for you.
- Out of control sexual behaviour (commonly called porn addiction or sex addiction in popular culture.)
- Sexless relationships – getting to the bottom of the issue.
- Couples who fight about sex – the type of sex and frequency.
- Mismatched libidos – when one partner wants sex more than the other.
- Couples who are in the kink community or want to understand their partner’s kinks or fetishes.
- High-risk behaviours such as exposing a partner to the risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV.
- Feeling your sexual impulses and urges are out of control.
- Couples where one partner is dealing with confusion about their sexual orientation or sexual identity.

Our Couples Sex Therapy Approach?
We use best practices and a sex positive approach when we work with individuals and couples with sexual issues. Our work is based on the six principles of sexual health (Braun-Harvey, 2009), which are:
- Consent – we believe safe, consensual sex is a human right that leads to mutually positive sexual interactions.
- Honesty – we support you and your partner having open and honest communication about your sexuality and sexual desires.
- Nonexploitation – we believe mutually satisfying sexual experiences come from not taking unfair advantage of your partner.
- Shared values – we help you understand the meaning of sex for you and your partner and what values you do and don’t share.
- Protection from STIs/HIV and unwanted pregnancy – we support you in maintaining that your sexual interactions do not harm you or your partners, or lead to unwanted pregnancy.
- Pleasure – we believe mutually pleasurable sexual activity is an important part of sexual health that involves giving and receiving pleasure in a safe way.
