Frequently Asked Questions
How is intimacy/sex/kink coaching different from sex therapy?
A certified sex coach or consultant helps clients identify current obstacles and create an action plan to help achieve goals, build confidence, satisfy desires, and empower the process of self-discovery and boundary setting. Coaches work to help you with current issues and challenges.
On the other hand, sex therapists work with clients to resolve issues rooted in a client's past. They work with clients on a long-term basis analyzing past experiences, traumas, unproductive/destructive patterns, etc.
Sex therapists also diagnose and treat dysfunctions and disorders. Therapists and psychologists also analyze present issues, but work within the context of the past, and how it is affecting the client today.
Coaches/consultants and therapists often work together to address different aspects of a client's life. Therapists work to heal past wounds that are causing issues today, while coaches/consultants work to identify goals and help move you forward. Both therapists and coaches/consultants serve different purposes and require different training/certifications/credentials.
Coaches/consultants will often refer clients to sex therapists when it is clear a current issue is being affected by deeply rooted past experiences. In turn, sex therapists often refer clients to coaches/consultants for complementary care to help empower, goal setting, and move forward. One does not replace the other and it is important to understand the differences, as well as how they work together.
