What is Sex Therapy?

Sex therapists use a variety of therapeutic interventions to help clients and couples with sexual problems. The primary intervention that is used by
Alan Kaine is a structured, cognitive-behavioural and skills-oriented treatment program to assist the client to effectively manage thoughts, feelings, attitudes and behaviours associated with his specific sexual problem.

For sexual problems, a therapist must be sensitive and understanding as well as non-judgmental and flexible.

What is the Procedure?

  • For general assessment (not court mandated), there will be a minimum of two clinical interviews
  • Life History Questionnaire that includes medical, social and sexual history
  • Psychometric (psychological) testing: various psychometric inventories depending on the nature and seriousness of the sexual problem.
  • Computer analysis of sexual preferences.
  • Psychophysiological testing (phallometry and polygraph) if applicable
  • Relapse Prevention if applicable
  • Risk Assessment if applicable
  • For most sexual problems, the treatment plan is to provide short-term psychotherapy
  • Long-standing trauma and/or history of sexual deviance, therapy will likely be longer
  • Individual and group therapy

Who Needs Sex Therapy?

Everyone in their lifetime will have some type of sexual problems (i.e., erectile dysfunction). Many of my clients have been reticent and embarrassed to ask for help about their sexual problem since they feel that sex is private, personal and intimate-not something that is easy to talk about. Some of my clients have waited years to address their sexual problem, which has caused considerable distress for them and their partner.

Does Sex Therapy Work?

Alan Kaine is only interested in helping those who want to help themselves. Therapy has been effective to my clients who are motivated to make positive changes in their life. See samples of testimonials.
