What is intimacy?
Intimacy is how you relate to each other … how you talk to each other, how you care for each other and how you live together. It’s not just sex.
True intimacy is being able to advocate what you want, with respect and consideration of your partner/friend/lover. It’s the way you conduct yourself in all your relationships. And it’s the way you listen to those interacting with you and how you help them meet their needs.
Tanya and her colleagues make sure to understand the full nature of people’s relationships and use this to inform their relationship and sex therapy interventions.
“I just wanted to say thank you so much for your help and insights. My partner and I are getting there... this is all helping so much and I do feel like we WILL get there. I really appreciate your understanding in our sessions. Your acknowledgement, understanding and guidance are so valuable. It’s helped to clarify things, explain things ... which is getting us on the path we need to be on to find a way to have happy, fulfilling, real intimacy. - Female, 34”
