About the Program

What is healthy sexuality?

All of us, on occasion, question society’s gender roles or issues surrounding our sexuality. For gender and sexuality we are endlessly intrigued, as sexuality manifests by the popularity of sex-themed literature, music, cinema, internet pornography, and beyond- but the details of our sexual natures usually remains private and hidden. It’s easy to talk about sex, but not easy to talk about our own true sexuality. What does it mean to be “comfortable with our sexuality?” What is healthy sexuality?

Some of us have a deeper confusion and sexual identity conflicts.  Our desires may be triggered in conflict to what our society finds acceptable. Maybe we are haunted by desires that we struggle in vain to relinquish. When should we seek to come to terms with that sexuality and when should we seek help to prevent dangerous compulsions? We may have serious trouble relating to our partners, or an inability to commit. Maybe we can’t find true intimacy and act compulsively while enacting more superficial encounters that lead nowhere. Or maybe our sexuality  feels healthy enough but is at odds with our family’s religious or cultural expectations.

Child abuse, alienation, culture, religion, fears, hopes, fantasies, and our intimate experiences all affect what we come to understand as our “sexuality.”
A healthy sexuality is one that does not consume an individual and that benefits his or her relationships, happiness, and personal pleasure.

In counselling, I provide a no-judgement environment and a relationship based on trust where the most confusing issues of identity can be explored. You will be empowered to take charge of your sexuality so that ultimately you control it, rather than it controlling you.
