What Does a Sex Therapist Do?

If you are experiencing problems with sexual performance or relationships and are thinking about consulting a sex therapist, Insight Psychological can provide you with professional and knowledgeable counsellors in Edmonton.

Sex therapists are trained and qualified psychiatrists, psychologists or clinical social workers who specialize in human sexuality. They discuss issues such as masturbation, erectile dysfunction, orgasm issues or any other difficulties an individual or couple is experiencing. Sex therapy is simply a form of psychotherapy or counselling that emphasis sexual difficulties rather than mental problems.
