What is A clinical sexologist?
A clinical sexologist is a sexologist who offers sex counseling, coaching, and education to assist people towards understanding and accepting themselves as sexual beings and to encourage them towards their sexual goals. Clinical Sexologists have extensively studied all aspects of human sexuality and help navigate people through areas in which they may find themselves stuck, confused, needing more information, or desiring to have more pleasure. Sexologists and trained sex therapists are non-judgmental, sex-positive and take biological, psychological, sociological, anthropological and historical factors into consideration when addressing sexual issues. They may use an educational or PLISSIT Model approach (Permission, Limited Information, Specific Suggestions & Intensive Therapy) to help clients meet their goals and do not have any preconceptions of what a client’s sexuality “should” look like.
