In my work as an individual and couples therapist, I deal mainly with human relationships, and in particular, intimate relationships. Sex is a valued part of human relationships and can be appreciated in many different ways. Sexual relations provide the opportunity to experience joy, pleasure, intimacy, satisfaction, security, bonding, playfulness and even a spiritual connection. Sex can be an expression of passion, creativity, and love. It involves holding on to yourself, while letting go, feeling secure while taking risks, being in the moment with all your senses while trusting, accepting and sharing.
