Understanding Sex Therapy

Sex therapy is a professional and therapeutic approach to addressing sexual issues. Unlike the common misconceptions, it’s not about physical sexual activity in therapy sessions. Instead, it’s talk therapy that provides a safe, private, and open space for individuals or couples to explore sexual concerns, from performance anxieties and intimacy issues to deeper sexual dysfunctions.

Who Needs Sex Therapy?

Couples and individuals may decide that they need sex therapy. In some cases, this might be to work on a particular issue or to help strengthen the bond that they have with someone special. Not all sex therapy sessions revolve around sexual problems and issues. In fact, many people find that undergoing this type of therapy helps them to become closer to that special someone or allow themselves to enjoy pleasure.

Using a holistic approach, clients will be encouraged to speak about their experiences. While there might be some shame and embarrassment when discussing these personal issues, communication is kept open so everyone knows where the boundaries are.

Topics Covered in Sex Therapy

Sex therapy covers a wide range of topics. Every couple or individual is different, which means different topics will need to be explored. However, some of the most common topics are:

Please note that our therapists fully understands the need to keep the topics private, and the topics that are discussed during each session are confidential.

Whether you wish to have a sex therapy session on your own or with your partner, you can. The choice is entirely yours. If you are in a relationship but you do not wish to bring your partner with you, it’s perfectly ok. You can feel at ease, talking about any topics you wish.

What Does Sex Therapy Do?

Sex therapy can help you to gain an understanding of your sexual needs and desires. Through sex therapy, you will be able to not only identify what your needs are but also how best to express them in a healthy manner. It is normal to feel embarrassed or scared when discussing these topics with someone, but our therapists provide a safe place for individuals and couples to explore their sexual issues.

You may also be able to identify any barriers that are preventing you from having satisfying sex and intimacy with your partner or yourself. It is important to remember that we all have different needs and different bodies, so it can take some time for us to understand what works best for us. Through sex therapy, we can learn how to communicate our needs better and  learn how to enjoy ourselves and our partners in a healthy and positive way.

With Heal Your Roots Wellness, you will not only be guaranteed a respectful and confidential space, but also an understanding and supportive one. We encourage each individual and couple to take their own pace during the sessions, so they can feel comfortable enough to talk about any of their issues without worrying about  judgement.

The goal of each session is to make sure that everyone leaves feeling empowered and able to take control of their lives, with a renewed sense of confidence in how to have satisfying sex and relationships.

Misconceptions Surrounding Sex Therapy

Sex therapy has many misconceptions. This is why it is important to dispel them so you know what to expect. During the sex therapy session, there will be no physical examinations, no nudity, and no touching between the therapist and the client or clients. You will not be pressured to do or say anything you do not want to do.

In many respects sex therapy is like a lot of other types of therapy, it is just the topic that is slightly different.

All sessions at Heal Your Roots Wellness are telehealth. The focus of sex therapy is to help clients express their feelings and needs, as well as understanding how to communicate these desires with any relevant partner.

A sex therapist will ask about your sexual history and preferences in order to gain an understanding of the issues you are facing.  Therapy sessions are a safe place where you can discuss anything that is causing distress, without any judgment.

Whether you are looking to improve your sexual relationship with yourself or someone else – our therapists will offer the best advice and guidance.  You will also be provided with tools to take away from the session that can help you make positive changes in your life.  

We understand that it can be difficult to open up about sexual desires and needs; but remember that Heal Your Roots Wellness provides a confidential space where clients can feel comfortable enough to talk about any issues without fear of judgement or shame.

Online vs. In-Person Sex Therapy in Philadelphia

In the digital age, therapy has expanded beyond traditional in-person sessions. Both online and in-person sex therapy options are available in Philadelphia, each with unique advantages.

Online Sex Therapy for Philly Couples

Online therapy offers flexibility and convenience, allowing individuals or couples to attend sessions from the comfort of their home. This method can be especially beneficial for those with demanding schedules, limited mobility, or those who live far from a therapist’s office. Online platforms ensure confidentiality and provide an environment in which clients may feel more comfortable discussing sensitive issues.

In-Person Sex Therapy in Philadelphia

In-person therapy, on the other hand, offers a more personal connection and interaction with the therapist. This format can be conducive to building trust and rapport, which are essential elements in therapy. Moreover, non-verbal communication, often significant in therapy, can be better observed in person.

Choosing between online or in-person therapy depends on individual needs and circumstances. Both forms of therapy can effectively address sexual health issues, so determining which format suits you best is crucial. Rest assured, whether online or in-person, Philadelphia boasts a wealth of skilled therapists committed to supporting your sexual wellness journey.
