Sex therapy and somatic sex coaching are both forms of therapy that can help people improve their sex lives. However, there are some key differences between the two approaches.
Traditional sex therapy is typically focused on the psychological aspects of sexuality. Therapists may help clients to understand their sexual thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and to develop strategies for managing any challenges they are facing.
Somatic sex coaching, on the other hand, is a more body-centered approach. Coaches work with clients to help them to become more aware of their bodies and their sensations, and to use this awareness to enhance their sexual experiences. In a Somatica Method session, the focus is on building skills and working in present time. The practitioner may suggest experiential exercises that clients can do in session to become more embodied and connected. Practices may include breathwork, mindfulness, exploring fantasies, and mapping boundaries and triggers just to name a few.
Somatic sex coaching can be a helpful option for people who are looking for a more holistic approach to improving their sex lives. It can be especially helpful for people who are experiencing physical or emotional blocks to pleasure, or who are simply looking to deepen their connection with their partner.
Here are some of the benefits of somatic sex coaching:
- Increased pleasure and intimacy
- Improved sexual function
- Enhanced communication with partners
- Reduced anxiety and stress around sex
- Increased body awareness and self-acceptance
If you are considering somatic sex coaching, here are some things to keep in mind:
