ALL ABOUT WOMEN - SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE -MARCH 4
Sydney May 22 - Cambridge Hotel, Surry Hills
One of the most common presenting issues in relationship therapy (and individual therapy) is a mis-match in desire.
Often people wanting more sex are looked upon as selfish and deviant in some way. Those with higher libidos are accused of being sex manics and sex addicts.
Those with lower libidos are castigated and told they “should” feel like sex because “everybody else” does. They can be called frigid and cold and little curiosity is shown as to why they may not be feeling like sex as often as their partner.
This workshop is designed to help practitioners work with couples facing the challenges of differences in sexual expectations.
