A Mindful Approach to Anxiety and Sexual Health
Do you struggle with perfectionism? Imposter syndrome? Comparing yourself to others? Wondering why you aren’t happier or able to appreciate all of the great things in your life? Feeling like there is no one you can really talk to or who would understand? Experiencing some shame or worry about your sex life (or lack of), sexuality, or gender? Not feeling fulfilled or able to perform sexually the way that you would like to? Wondering about if a polyamourous or kink lifestyle might be right for you?
These issues may all seem very different, but the one thing binding them together is a desire to talk to someone who is nonjudgmental and who will understand your emotions. Someone who can help you navigate the problem and come up with solutions that will work. If you are dealing with any (or all!) of these issues, you need to be able to talk to someone who can make you feel comfortable and truly listen to you. Someone who can help you start to live the life you deserve. If you can relate to any of these issues or feelings and this sounds like what you are looking for to help, you’ve come to the right place.
Counseling is about hope. What do I hope for you? I hope that you can live a life which is not free from worry or anxiety, but a life in which worry or anxiety doesn’t control you or stop you from doing the things you love. I hope that you are able to live your life as your authentic self – whatever or whoever that is – and not have to hide because of fear or lack of support. I hope that you don’t feel shame or embarrassment that you are attracted to the opposite sex, practice kinky sexual practices, swing with your partner, have an open relationship, love more than one person, or weren’t born into the right gender. I hope that you can live the life you deserve.
