What is a sexologist?

A sexologist is a therapist who can advise and give you personal insight to sexological issues. It can be caused by low self esteem or lack of confidence in one of the partners. This can happen periodically if the spark between two partners disappears, they get children, or both are struggling with stress, anxiety or depression. There are many reasons why these issues appear in a relationship - but don't let it discourage you! With a sexologist it is possible to get to the bottom of the underlying factors which have a great influence on the issues you're struggling with. In that way you can get guidance and tools which will make it easier to move on well and get your sexlife back on track - or better!

How a sexologist can help you

Whether you are single or in a relationship sexological counselling can strengthen your sexual identity and help you moving forward in your personal development. A session with a sexologist requires knowledge and interest in communication, sexual issues and couples therapy which is obtained through education and clinical experience.
