People find it so difficult to talk about sex yet it is such an important part life. In the words of Shirley MacLaine sex is hardly ever about sex! It’s easy to pathologise dysfunction and treat sexual issues in isolation, yet they very rarely occur outside of people’s lives and relationships.

Participants will learn why sex is so important and methods to allow easy communication and an open and relaxed way with their clients, patients or even their own loved ones!  This includes personal and relational influences in clients lives as well as sitting with the emotions that may come up for them.

Tanya will give participants language and techniques to help them bring up and discuss sex, sexuality and sexual issues with their clients.

An in-depth look at sexual issues faced by individuals and couples; causes; useful interventions and processes that you can use to help your clients.
