Unmasking Therapy: The Perks of Private Practice Sex Therapy

Embarking on a journey with a sex therapist can truly be a transformative experience, but let’s be real, choosing the right therapist and where to seek therapy takes some time and effort. With online therapy platforms popping up left and right, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and wonder, “Why should I choose a private practice over an online platform?”

Well, for me, opting for a professional in private practice has its own set of unique advantages. Let’s dive into a few of the perks that I, personally, see in seeking a private practice therapist:

Personalised Attention

Online therapy platforms offer accessibility, but there’s something special about the personalised touch you get from private practice sex therapy. With smaller caseloads, private practice therapists can really tailor the therapy to your individual needs and often have more time to reflect between sessions and put more time and energy into tailoring the therapy to suit you.

Cost Considerations

It’s no secret that seeing a therapist in private practice might come with a higher price tag. Therapy in any sense is a privilege many don’t have access to. Recognising the financial privilege involved in therapy, many private practice therapists, offer low-cost sessions or affordable resources which can provide some relief and inside information. We can also point you to other affordable services that match your budget. Check out my contact page for an excellent low-cost option!

Client Autonomy

Client autonomy is a big deal. You should have the power to choose when to start and end sessions, no questions asked. It’s all about empowering you to take control of your therapy journey. With me, sessions are open-ended, and you’re free to hit the brakes whenever you feel ready. I’ll never pressure you into committing to a certain number of sessions—unless, of course, that’s what you want—and you only pay for the sessions you actually have.

In my humble opinion and obviously biased opinion, opting for private practice sex therapy over online platforms offers a more personalised approach. But the most important thing is finding an ethical therapist that you feel comfortable with. That’s the real key to successful therapy.
