What is Sex + Intimacy Therapy?

Sex and intimacy are intertwined but distinct. While sex offers temporary pleasure, intimacy involves emotional closeness and trust, extending beyond mere physical sensations. It encompasses deep conversations, shared experiences, and moments of connection. When intimacy overwhelms personal space, it can impact sexual desire. Our therapists can assist in navigating these boundaries for a balanced relationship!

Sex + Intimacy Therapy can help with:
  • Encouraging more satisfying, intimate or loving sexual experiences
  • Open and honest communication about sexual preferences, desires, fantasies, values, boundaries, physical discomforts or pain during sex
  • Resolving conflict and disagreements, accepting sexual or emotional rejection
  • Building or re-building trust and encouraging security in the relationship
  • Address infidelity or challenges with pornography, jealousy or betrayal in the relationship
  • Vulnerability and deepening your ability to give and receive affection or love
  • Dependency, too much emotional closeness or reliance on a partner to offer validation, happiness or fulfillment in the relationship
  • Developing a positive body image, greater self-esteem, or fostering sexual confidence
  • Maintaining a sense of individuality, independence, personal space and separate identity from the relationship
  • Managing priorities and protecting time for sex and intimacy, including after becoming parents or having children
  • Understanding the underlying reasons for low sexual arousal, desire or libido and finding solutions or compromise that meets everyone’s needs
  • Processing anxiety or performance-related challenges that interfere with sexual satisfaction
  • Finding strategies to manage erectile challenges or to overcome challenges like maintaining a firm erection
  • Identifying the underlying factors contributing to difficulties achieving an orgasm or achieving an orgasm too quickly
  • Infertility, including the emotional and physical impacts of treatments on sex and intimacy
  • Normalizing the range of emotions experienced during grief, loss and bereavement and adjusting sexual expectations
  • Processing sexual trauma or abuse to regain a sense of safety and pleasure

How does Sex + Intimacy Therapy work at Bliss?
  1. At Bliss, we believe your counselling should be as unique as you are. We’ll begin by getting you matched with a therapist who is passionate about enhancing your sexual health and relational well-being!
  2. Then, you’ll get started with your initial session. During this appointment (virtual or in-person), you’ll share more about your sexual concerns, experiences and relationship dynamics. You’ll leave with a better sense of the underlying factors and your sex and intimacy goals!
  3. From here, you and your therapist will co-create a custom path, where you will develop greater self-awareness and receive valuable tools and exercises to support you along the way! With a sex-pert by your side, you’ll learn to explore pleasure and cultivate a deeper connection in your relationship!
  4. Sometimes, in the exploration of sex and intimacy, past traumas or attachment wounds may be activated. You may be encouraged to seek additional therapy or to address and process these challenges when unresolved issues arise. Your therapist will work with you to understand your unique needs and improve your experiences with sex, intimacy and pleasure!
