Sexual therapy

I offer short-term goal oriented sexual therapy and sexual counseling. I'm also available for presentations, workshops and consultation. Therapy, counseling and presentations are available in Finnish and English.

 

Due to the corona pandemic, therapy, counseling and presentations are mostly available online. When restrictions allow, I have limited in-person availability in Helsinki and Berlin.

Therapy

I am currently studying sexual therapy and will graduate in June 2021. We can however start our process as counseling during spring 2021, already including therapeutic elements. I receive supervision from sexology professionals during my studies. 

Short-term goal oriented sexual therapy means that we meet for 5-20 times and collaborate to find solutions to your problems and to strengthen the good in your sexual and relationship life. You can come to therapy solo, partnered or with your polycule.

 

I work from the frameworks of positive psychology, attachment theory and trauma awareness. I have specific knowledge and experience in BDSM and kink, gender and sexual diversity, and non-monogamy.

Sexual therapy can help you with problems related to, among others:

  • sexual functioning, desire and orgasm

  • past negative experiences and their impact

  • changes in your gender and sexual identity and their impact on your sexuality

  • changes in your life situation or health and their impact on your sexuality

  • pain that affects your sexuality

  • relationship difficulties that are linked to sex, sexuality, emotions and/or emotional expression

  • self confidence and body image 

  • sexual shame, guilt

  • sexual desires or actions that cause harm to yourself or others

Sexual therapy is mostly based on talking and talk-based exercises. There can be solo or partnered touch based exercises if it's relevant to your process, but not between the therapist and the client. Any touch between me as the therapist and you as my client is always negotiated and based on your emotional needs, and it is never sexual. Discussions are always confidential.

Counseling

 

Sexuality counseling is goal-oriented collaboration. We meet for 1-5 times to discuss matters related to sex and sexuality without starting a therapeutic process. You can come to counseling solo, partnered or with your polycule.

 

Counseling is aimed at you if you need:

  • to get more information about your sexuality or sex and sexuality in general

  • someone to talk about your sexuality without fear of judgement or stigma

  • advice on specific situations or questions

The topics we discuss can be the same as in sexual therapy. We can start a therapeutic process even after starting with counseling if you're unsure about how much support you will need.

Sexual counseling is mostly based on talking. I might suggest solo or partnered touch based exercises to do at home. There is no sexual touch between counselor and client. Discussions are always confidential.

Lectures & consulting

I offer lectures on several topics related to sex and sexuality. My expertise lies especially in the following areas but I can prepare presentations on other sexological subjects as well, both online and offline. 

  • BDSM and kink

  • Gender and sexual diversity

  • Non-monogamy

  • Consent and negotiation

  • Body image

I'm available to work as an intimacy coordinator and sexuality/shibari consultant in film productions as well as other projects.
