Sex Positive Therapy in Winnipeg

Sex can be amazing, but it’s so complicated at the same time. It comes with so many issues, and sometimes it’s hard to express what you want. No surprise, some of us have sex-related problems.

Whether you’re dealing with gender identity, interest or preferences, it can be a lot to handle.

Never mind finding someone who is on the same page with you. Even with that, it’s hard to communicate what you want and need.

And sometimes, you’re not even sure what that is.

Having questions, curiosity, or even confusion is normal. And you’ve tried to deal with it yourself, but things aren’t getting easier. You feel discouraged. You need help.

And more than anything, you want someone you can talk to who supports you. Someone who doesn’t judge you. Someone who really gets it and understands what you’re dealing with.

Improve Your Sexual Health

Hi, I’m Vern, and at My Winnipeg Therapist, I offer Therapy that is Sex-Positive. There’s many reasons people come to me for help with sex counselling, and I’m here to help you. I’m on your side.

That’s right; I’m not here to judge or tell you what’s right or wrong.

Like the many issues people come to me for help with, I know that sexual identity can be especially tough. You know you’re different, and people can be pretty hurtful sometimes.

As human beings, we all have preferences, in food, in friends, and yes, with sex. Certain things work for you while other things can seem pretty dull. And our sexual appetites or libidos are rarely at the same place, either. That can leave both of you frustrated and not sure what to do.

I can help you gain insight, comfort, and confidence in who you are.

Maybe you’re thinking about sex, or porn or hooking up too much. It’s interfering with your relationships, your daily life, and how you feel about yourself. I can help you learn strategies to get this under control and improve your sexual health.

Using a Sex-Positive approach, we can really improve your Sexual Health by getting you of what feels right for you.

What is Sex Positive Therapy?

Even if you haven’t been in counselling, you may have already heard of depression, anxiety, and couples’ therapy. But what you may not have heard of is Sex Positive Therapy. This exciting new approach to counselling seeks to help you boost your quality of life by improving your views on sexuality.

If you’ve been having problems in the bedroom or just connecting with your sexual side in general, Sex Positive Therapy might just be the solution you’re looking for. Sex Positive Therapy improves not just your sexual relationships with others but also your relationship with your own sexuality.

What Can Sex Positive Therapy Do for You?

Sex Positive Therapy can help you with a wide array of sexually-related concerns. It can help revitalize your bedroom experiences, give you better overall satisfaction, and even address unusual sexual interests you may be uncomfortable with. Here are some issues that Sex Positive Therapy can assist you with.

  1. Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity – we have come a long way in realizing a greater gender identity than the traditional binary view of female-male gender, or heterosexual. The acronym LGBTQ+2S represents a greater variety of sexual identity that includes bisexual, lesbian, gay, queer, questioning, transgender, intersex and asexual persons. Sex Positive Therapy honours this wonderful diversity and helps you connect with your sexual orientation and gender identify.
  2. Differences in libido/sex drive – People have different needs, and the same is true for your sexual needs as well. You and your partner may feel unsatisfied due to differences in sexual drive or libido. This can lead to feelings of inadequacy and resentment, especially when one partner’s sexual needs aren’t being met. Sex Positive Therapy can help you find a middle ground that works for both of you.
  3. Sexual interest – Sex with a partner is often a fulfilling experience, but when you find that you’re steadily losing interest, it may be time to consider talking to a Sex-Positive Therapist. Low or lack of sexual interest is common in women, but it happens to men too. A good Sex-Positive Therapist can help bring the magic back to your bedroom and your relationship.
  4. Sexual performance – Performance anxiety isn’t just for public speaking; it happens in the bedroom as well. You might find difficult to have sex with your partner because of sexual anxiety, stress or ‘hang-ups’. Being unable to perform sexually isn’t just physiological – there may be psychological reasons as well. Talking to a Sex-Positive Therapist can help you address those reasons and help you get your mojo back.
  5. Sex becomes boring – It’s not that sex isn’t enjoyable, but after several years with your spouse or long-term partner, you may be starting to find it boring. That’s a common issue that happens to some couples, and it doesn’t mean you care about your partner any less. With Sex Positive Therapy, you’ll be able to revitalize your sexual life together—and your relationship.
  6. Sexual addiction – There’s such a thing as too much of a good thing. Sex Positive Therapy doesn’t just help you increase your sexual drive but also lower it to more healthy levels, if that’s a problem. If you find that your relationship with sex is interfering with your regular life, a Sex-Positive Therapist can help you develop healthier ways to experience sex.
  7. Pornography addiction – Pornography has been around for a long time, but with the rise of the internet, it’s become so easy to access that it’s quite literally at the tip of your fingertips. While there’s nothing wrong with viewing pornography, becoming addicted to pornography can cause difficulties with connecting sexually with your partner, libido, and managing the amount of time you spend online. Sex Positive Therapists can help wean you off pornography addiction.
