A Typical Session…
Typical therapy sessions last 53-60 minutes, and are spent discussing the client’s concerns in the context of their life. This may include exploring relevant aspects of the client’s history, assessing current symptoms, discussing current interpersonal relationships, engaging in relevant exercises, or the therapist providing education on relevant topics. As in all therapeutic relationships, boundaries are important and there will be no physical contact between therapist and client.
While sex is often part of the work in sex therapy, one’s sex life exists in the context of the rest of their life. Therefore it is not uncommon to discuss things that are seemingly unrelated to the presenting concerns, but are usually relevant upon further exploration.
Weekly therapy is usually recommended initially while the client and therapist are building a working relationship, and this frequency may or may not change over time. Therapy is discontinued when the client has made sufficient progress on their treatment goals.
