Attachment and somatic based Sexuality & intimacy coaching AND Sex Therapy:
Which Couples Therapy and/or Sex Therapy or Relationship Coaching Modality is the best for me / us?
We get this question a lot. Don't fret!
We will help you figure this out and match you with the best practitioner for your circumstances and preferences.
Our live receptionists answer calls seven days a week to get you set up for your one-on-one free intake consultation call, during which, our skilled intake coordinators (who are also licensed psychologists and psychotherapists who are certified in clinical sex therapy and couples therapy) will identify the best type of services needed for your particular situation.
We may determine that you need a more clinically structured type of support modality, such as psychotherapy (talk therapy) that focusses on sex therapy, relationships or attachment needs
Or perhaps you may have a preference to work with a licensed certified sex therapist or couples therapist (such as a psychologist or clinical psychotherapist etc.).
However, in many circumstances, our San Francisco Intimacy & Sex Therapy Center sexuality & intimacy coaches also have unique skills and may be a fabulous fit for your sexuality and relationship goals.
Below are a few of the types of intimacy and sexuality coaching our San Francisco Intimacy & Sex Therapy Center's practitioners are trained in:
Some San Francisco Intimacy & Sexuality Coaching Modalties:
Somatic sex Therapy Methods:
Just like the many other highly specialized relationship and sexuality focussed modalities our San Francisco Bay Area clinical psychologists, sexologists, psychotherapists and relationship & sexuality coaches are trained in various techniques such as Somatic Based Methods and Sex Therapy Modalities; coaching methods and sex therapy our San Francisco practitioners are certified in.
What are EMBODIED OR SOMATIC METHODS & MODALITIES?
The word somatic is derived from the Greek word “soma” which means living body. Somatic Sex Therapy is a holistic method of sexuality coaching or sex therapy that studies the relationship between the mind and body in regard to psychological past, current phisical experiences in the body and thoughts around body and sexuality.
Somatic - A method of relating to the body, especially as distinct from the mind. However, since we cannot remove the mind from body or body from mind, an Embodied Transformative Somatic Method of Sexuality & Intimacy Coaching / Sex Therapy allows individuals and couples to:
experience a deeply loving, attachment and body-based, holistic, systematic approach rooted in neuroscience
to deepen emotional and sexual connection, exploration and erotic joy.
Intimacy Coaching and Sex Therapy can help partners and couples to:
heal sexual trauma and shame,
identify, name and discuss their sexual & emotional needs, desires and boundaries,
experience amazing and satisfying sex and relationships
live and express their authentic Self within their individual life as well as with partners, both sexually and emotionally
experience erotic embodiment and somatic awareness and learn how to communicate and express this aspect of themselves.
We are proud to offer services in an array of pertinent psychotherapy and coaching modalities to provide the best relationship & sexuality support California's San Francisco Bay Area has to offer.
Our San Francisco sexologists, sexuality coaches and sex therapists:
utilize comprehensive attachment-based somatic approaches that are based on the latest neuroscience of attachment, sexuality and connection.
Through psychology and neuroscience, we now have a much deeper understanding of how the brain creates neural networks (a physical pattern of learning and experiencing in the brain and body) and can thus help you learn and integrate new skills, somatic awareness and ways of relating emotionally and sexually.
This process of developing and changing neural networks is a way of literally rewiring the brain to experience new ways of relating and connecting in intimate partnership and sexuality.
We also have sex therapists and intimacy coaches certified in clinical sex therapy (licensed mental health practitioners and doctors of psychology and sexuality), Somatic Experiencing Practitioners, and Sexual Empowerment Coaching, and Sexology, amongst other relevant attachment and somatic based intimacy & relationship sex therapy methods.
