Treatment approach

The Sex Therapy Clinic works with the patient from all perspectives—body and soul. Therefore, the type of treatment needs to be personally compatible to the patient, their needs and medical condition and emotional profile. The integrated therapy approach, personalized to each person, uses proven professional and scientific modalities developed by experts in the field. Patient treatment is guided and monitored by a physician.

What is included in the initial diagnosis?

The clinic team uses progressive methods and state-of-the-art equipment to diagnose and identify the root cause of the problem. Along with physiological exams, initial individual or couple’s emotional assessments are performed—all in order to provide comprehensive targeted treatment.

What does clinic treatment entail?

Treatments that are provided based on each patient’s and/or couple’s needs include:
  • Medication prescription: for example PDE5i for erectile dysfunction
  • Topical creams
  • Medical intervention
  • Sex therapy
  • Couples sex therapy

Who is on the treatment team?

The multidisciplinary team, consisting of gynecologists and social workers who specialize in individual and couple’s sex therapy, provides care for the full spectrum of sexual disorders. 

The clinic works in close collaboration with physiotherapists, complementary medicine professionals and urologists from the Men’s Sexual Health Clinic.
