AISSM therapists provide support, education and empowering advice across a wide range of sexual health concerns. AISSM offers private individual and couples counselling sessions at their offices in Malvern and Carlton, Victoria. Online sex therapy sessions are also available.

What is a sexologist?

A sexologist is someone who studies the science of sexual health and how it makes you feel. Having spent years intensively studying human behaviour and sex, a sexologist can provide you with a clearer understanding of your own unique sexuality, as well as empowering you with the knowledge and confidence to lead a healthy sex life.

AISSM sexologists are experts on sexual health and wellbeing and are able to guide you through the physical, mental and social aspects of your sexual wellness.

What happens in therapy?

During your first meeting with your AISSM therapist, they will get to know you by talking through a number of topics including your physical health, childhood/family beliefs about gender and sexuality, current and past relationships, and more. During this session you will be asked to be open and honest about your relationships, sexual activities, and sexual concerns.

The key to successful therapy is being open and honest with your practitioner. All conversations with your therapist are confidential and judgment-free. At the end of your first session your therapist will set homework and exercises to work on outside of your therapy time.
