Sexual Identity

Sexual Identity

Sometimes it can be difficult to form relationships with people. In particular if you are not sure about your sexuality. Sexuality can mean so many different things. For example being gay, straight, Bi or transsexual. It can be what your comfort zone is in your sexual relationships – such as how much sex you enjoy and what type of sex you enjoy. We are diverse as humans, and quite often things like our sexual preferences and sex drives don’t match with others. Sexuality covers our deepest desires as humans and therapy can help you find your true self with confidence and well-being.

 

If you think you are gay, you’ve probably known you are for a long time! Generally speaking stigma can be off-putting, you might feel scared about what your family and friends will think of you or if they will treat you different. From my experience of working with sexuality I can say in the end it never really matters what others think or say once you have experienced the freedom of releasing your sexuality. A new freedom fills your consciousness and you can finally be who you want to be in every aspect of your life – not hiding your true self.

Given the time we are in, our TV’s, radios and video games are over sexualized which in turn puts unnecessary pressure on men and women to perform. As young impressionable teens watch shows and music video’s, they pick up messages about sex that are unrealistic. Under the pressure of ‘expectations’ the pressure on young men and women to look a certain way and act a certain way has an undeniable effect on sexual performance. If you are carrying the burden of low sexual self-esteem and would like to change, amazingly some simple CBT techniques can change this for you. There is also the chance you may just be A-Sexual – meaning you feel no attraction to anyone.

It is imperative for anyone who reads this page not to take any of the terms used as a given in your situation. A full assessment must be conducted to ascertain the issues specific to your needs. I have had experience with many people facing these issues and have helped them to find freedom in their sexual identity.
