Melbourne Sex Therapist

Sex therapy begins with acceptance. If you’re interstate, overseas, or a local in Melbourne Australia, I’d be happy to work with you. If you’re looking for an online sex therapist, or live locally in Melbourne, please reach out.

Sex therapy can help a client resolve sexual issues by discussing strategies related to the concerns presented in therapy. Having a professional listen to your sex-related concerns can be a healing process, assuring you that you are not judged and that your sexual concerns are nothing to feel embarrassed about. Sex therapy involves getting to the root of the problem of what is interfering with your sexual satisfaction.

Birds and the Bees

Sex Therapy at the Melbourne Counselling Clinic

Sexual problems are a topic of conversation that we often shy away from; it can be uncomfortable, and a very private matter, or maybe we feel unsure about discussing sexual concerns because we do not want other people to think there is something odd or wrong with us if we admit we are having such problems.

The good news is that it is safe to talk about sexual problems with a qualified Melbourne sex therapist, and it can be beneficial to you and help relieve your concerns about sex. Talking to a professional about sex can be helpful, and it does not have to be uncomfortable or embarrassing. In fact, it is quite the opposite, with experienced Melbourne-based sex therapist Ronnie Adamowicz. In counselling sessions with Ronnie, you can talk about issues related to sex in a supportive, nonjudgmental environment.


Sex therapy myths and misconceptions:

Sex therapy does not involve taking off clothing or physical touch by the therapist. Its mechanism is talk therapy. Another misconception about sex therapy is that you must bring your partner with to therapy. Actually, sex therapy is often individual therapy, which is the case for Ronnie’s practice.

Important to remember: Talk therapy is a collaborative process between you and therapist, and will be targeted to your individual needs. Sex therapy can be combined with other types of therapy, such as relationship counselling.

What does a sex therapy session usually involve?

The first session of sex therapy often looks similar to the first session of other types of counselling. During the first session of sex therapy, the sex therapist will ask you about your relationships, beliefs, and past history of sexual trauma, and the reason you are seeking out counselling with a sex therapist.

Sex therapy sessions are targeted towards each individual’s concerns, which is why they can differ from person to person. However, most sessions involve a discussion of concerns, and education about the specific sexual concerns. A sex therapist will often assign homework to the client, for the client to report back on during the next session. The homework can involve experimentation and communication with your partner. One example of homework would be journaling about sexual experiences and problems that are occurring with them.

Sex Therapy: What is it?

Sex therapy is a specialized type of psychotherapy. The purpose of sex therapy is to help individuals to address any issues that are affecting their sexual satisfaction. As in other types of therapy, a sex therapist will assist you by way of conversations; these will explore your worries, experiences, and feelings surrounding your sexual experiences. Sex therapy assists clients in problem-solving on the issues related to their sex life and relationships. Some of the topics that sex therapy can help with are related to sexual dysfunction, which is actually quite common: 31 percent of men and 43 percent of women experience sexual dysfunction at some point in their lifetime.

What are some common causes of sexual dysfunction?

This type of dysfunction can stem from either psychological or medical causes. Psychological causes for sexual dysfunction may include work stress, low self-esteem, sexual trauma, relationship conflict, anxiety, depression, and guilt. Medical causes that contribute to sexual dysfunction can include heart disease, alcohol abuse, diabetes, and the use of certain medications such as antidepressants.

Some issues that sex therapy can help with:


  • Erectile dysfunction in men
  • Low sexual arousal
  • Lack of confidence in ability to perform
  • Unwanted sexual thoughts
  • Hypersexuality
  • Lack of desire
  • Asexuality, or no interest in sex
  • Sexual boredom
  • Pain during sex
  • Inability to achieve orgasm
  • Vaginismus in women

You'll find that bit by bit you'll chip away at the issues that have been troubling you and gradually you'll feel your load lighten.Ronnie cares and he cares about helping you.I couldn't be more grateful that I found him.Review author ★★★★★ When I was looking for a psychologist/psychotherapist I looked at a lot. Something really stood out about Ronnie so he was one of 3 I spoke with. Firstly I found that some psychologists wouldn't allow me to speak with them, would only let me book in for a session. If I'm entrusting my essence and being to someone I think I should know if I feel I can at least be comfortable with them before I make a decision on if I'll see them.Ronnie gave me a free 20 minute session. He answered all my questions frankly and I felt very comfortable with him. I have a lot to work through with him spanning my lifetime. I can comfortably discuss anything with him without any concerns on what he may think. He's always careful to check how I'm going during a session and the following week how I was after the session so I never feel pressured or just pushed along. Everything is at my pace - not his.He uses a variety of methods to best assist me. He is there FOR me, NOT to push, NOT to judge.
