Sexology is the study of human sexuality and its manifestations. It studies all aspects of sexuality, namely sexual development, the mechanisms of sexual relations, sexual behavior and affective relationships, including physiological, psychological, medical, social and cultural aspects. We could qualify the sexological method as a multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary or even transdisciplinary discipline. In this sense, sexology seeks to bring together and integrate in a common analysis and reflection all the data of various sciences (biology, psychology, sociology, physiology and more).

The role of the sex therapist is to listen, support, raise awareness and help treat people who are struggling with issues or questions about relationships, sexual or emotional distress. The sex therapist intervenes both individually and with groups of different people, from preschool students to the elderly population. Consultations can also be done individually or as a couple.

Sexuality is a very complex dimension for people and is an integral part of our life. It is present from the first breath to the last and is not reduced to genitality. It is therefore essential to know the different dimensions of our sexuality and use them to live a harmonious and fulfilling sex life with oneself and with one’s partner. A better knowledge of our sexuality promotes serenity and alleviates the fears and anxiety caused by the unknown. The sex therapist is here to guide you in this personal journey towards your sexual well-being.
