What To Know About Sex Therapy

If you are having difficulty in your sex life or with your sexuality, therapy can help. Sexual health therapy can help you with your issues regarding sex and help you address them or even resolve them. This type of therapy can be done alone or with your partner. While this type of therapy can be very helpful, many have anxiety about starting the process. Here are three things that you should know about sexual health therapy.

Your Options

The first thing to know is that there are various forms of sex therapy, and it's important to look into your options in order to determine which type will work best for your needs. Typically you will have the option between individual therapy and therapy with your partner in attendance. Some sexual therapists specialize in certain sexual health issues. It's important to look into your options and find a therapist who is experienced and able to treat your issues.

Some therapists also offer online therapy if you are unable to meet in person or are uncomfortable in an office setting.

When to Seek Out Therapy

Another thing to consider when it comes to sexual health therapy is when to seek out therapy. Sexual health therapy is often used to address a lack of sexual desire, a disparity in sex drives between partners, painful intercourse, difficulty with intimacy, sex addiction, difficulty achieving orgasm, and other sexual problems. If there are issues that are having a negative impact on your sex life, it may be time to seek out therapy. Seeking out therapy can help you resolve or help you deal with these issues and can improve your relationship with yourself and with your partner.

Costs can vary depending on the type of therapy you choose, the frequency with which you require sessions, and whether or not your health insurance offers coverage for this type of therapy. On average, you can expect to pay between $100 and $200 per session. Some insurance policies will cover the costs, while others may only cover a certain number of sessions.

Knowing when to seek out therapy is also key. Costs can vary, but in most cases, it will range between $100 and $200 per hour.
