Sexuality is affection. And why affection?
More than the physical sensations, our emotions, thoughts and experiences shape our behaviours. Difficulties in this domain are usually followed by a great suffering not only in those who are experiencing it, but also affects the partner, with repercussions to its surroundings. It is in this moments that the psychologist-sexologist can contribute to a better understanding helping with several therapeutic techniques.
Sexuality is then a process and an everlasting learning. Therefore the patient will learn new mechanisms enabling he or she to adapt to its own reality.
As a sexologist my work is subject to:
• Communication and conflict issues in the couple;
• Difficulties expressing affection and in obtaining pleasure individually or with the partner;
• Myths and taboos in sexuality, effective communication in the relationship linking disturbances in sexuality, low sexual desire (men and women), lubrication difficulties, dyspareunia (pain during sexual intercourse and shortly after), vaginismus (involuntary contraction of the muscles of the vagina), erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, anorgasmia, menopause, andropause, etc.
