Sex therapy addresses challenges and concerns, helping couples move forward in a healthy manner while addressing each person’s fears or worries. Sex is the closest form of intimacy, and when there are issues, the couple can feel distant and experience friction — sex therapy helps to dissolve this friction.
Sex therapy providers at Thriveworks in Chesterfield, VA take the time to address each person individually, as well as the couple as a whole. Through acknowledgment that each person brings a different sexual history, level of sexual desire, and openness, the couple can work through their unique sex issues successfully, with their therapist's guidance.
Sex is an essential part of life. For most people, it is a necessity, a constant, yet something we generally do not talk about with friends or family. While our society has become much more open in regards to sex, talking about personal sexual problems, insecurities, or issues is still quite uncommon. If it makes most people uncomfortable to talk about sex, talking about sexual disorders or issues is even more troublesome. If you are looking for help with a sexual disorder or sexual issue, Thriveworks Chesterfield has trained professionals ready to help. We are discreet, trained professionals, with experience dealing with a wide range of sexual issues. We are a judgment-free zone, ready to openly and honestly help you come to a solution for whatever you are facing.
Sexual disorders and issues vary widely. Some common types of sexual issues include:
- Sexual orientation
- Anxiety about sex or sexual performance
- Body image issues
- Sex addiction
- Promiscuity or unfaithfulness
- Lack of sexual desire
- Conflicting sexual needs and wants in a relationship
- Sexual abuse or rape recovery
- Sexual impulses and compulsions
This is a general list of common sexual issues, but it is certainly not an exhaustive list. If your personal problem is not listed on this list, Thriveworks Chesterfield sex therapists are still able to walk on this journey with you. We will help you identify the source or root of your problem, develop a plan for improvement, and then will help you monitor your success in finding victory over this problem.
When a couple is having problems in the bedroom, their relationship suffers in other areas. A lack of closeness, intimacy, and decreased connection can result. It is often difficult to determine whether a couple’s sexual issues developed before or after other relationship problems. A Thriveworks sex therapist or couples counselor can help navigate these issues, and identify the source of sexual problems. For many people, trauma from their childhood or past relationships cause difficulties in future relationships. When this person is able to honestly deal with the hurt from the past, they can begin to overcome their sexual issues in a new relationship. Thriveworks sex therapists in Chesterfield are waiting to help you make this progress.
