Sex Therapy in London

If you have come across this page, you may be looking for some answers to sexual challenges or unmet sexual needs in your relationship or dating life. If so, read on, because it is helpful for you to know the different options available before you consider the right approach for you.

Firstly let’s look at the difference between sex therapy and sex coaching and why it matters.

What is the difference between Sex Therapy and Sex Coaching?

The two main professionals you can work with when it comes to challenges regarding your intimate life are sex therapists and sex coaches. Who you work with depends on what you want and need. Do you want to work on unresolved trauma from your childhood or past adult relationships? Or are you just wanting to work on better communication in dating and relationships or performance anxiety in sex? It is important to figure out why you need help, and what you need help with before you find the right person. We can support you with this during an initial consultation call.

In general, sex therapy is more of a long term solution. Sex therapists are trained to assess and treat various sexual dysfunctions, relationship challenges, and underlying psychological factors that may impact sexual well-being. They use evidence-based therapeutic techniques to address deep-rooted issues and work towards healing and resolution. The main focus of therapy is to talk through painful feelings and experiences and gain an understanding of how your past has impacted your present.

Sex Coaching

Sex coaches, however, generally focus on the present and future, emphasising personal growth, self-discovery, and skill-building. Coaching is typically 2-6 months. They may provide homework assignments, suggest exercises, or offer practical tools to help clients achieve their sexual goals. Sex coaches often work in a more informal setting and will delve deeply into past traumas or psychological issues as they uncover the things that keep the client from having the experience that they want. Sex coaches may use all or some of the same techniques as sex therapists, but they keep a steady eye on moving the client forward.

Sex coaching for couples and individuals offered by Zoe Clews & Associates is a highly effective approach to addressing and resolving various issues related to love, relationships, and sexuality. Many individuals experience challenging problems in their sexual lives, and despite the prevalence of these issues, some may be hesitant to seek support. The coaching offered by trained, certified, and insured coaches takes a holistic view of the problem, aiming to change negative beliefs and behaviours surrounding love, intimacy, and pleasure.

Sex Coaching Work

We have two specialists working in this field: Emma Spiegler, our Love, Relationships, and Sexuality Coach, and Andrea Balboni, our Couples Coach.

As sex coaches, we see clients who are at different stages in life, from people who have been married for 20 years to single people wanting a partnership to those dating and wanting to improve their sexual performance. For some, they may not have had any therapy before and are wanting to start with a practical approach from the onset. For others, they may have already had talk therapy, and although they have come to a place of deep understanding of their challenges and wounds around sex, they have yet to make some vital positive changes in their sex life.

This is where working with a sex coach can help you.

How does Sex Coaching Work?

The sex coaching sessions offered by Zoe Clews & Associates address a wide range of issues related to love, sexuality, and relationships. The coaching takes a trauma-aware approach, acknowledging the impact of early experiences and core beliefs on our attitudes towards intimacy. Emma’s (Individuals Coach) and Andrea’s (Couples Coach) coaching methods incorporate a structured and results-based approach. Coaching is a mind and body based approach. Our coaches use a unique combination of ground-breaking techniques informed by modern psychology and proven by the latest neuroscience to leverage the power of your mind. By creating a dialogue between the subconscious and conscious minds, coaching helps clients tune into their bodies and uncover subconscious blocks. Coaching will laser focus on the root of what’s really holding you back via a methodology that translates the sensations you experience in your body to critical information that takes years of talk therapy to get to – if ever.

Your body stores everything – including the keys to what it will take to move you over the line and into healthy and satisfying relationships and sexual intimacy.
