It will often involve things such as getting a different perspective on your experiences, exploring, and discovering things about yourself, making changes in unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaving, processing difficult experiences, and learning healthy coping tools.

Sexology is the scientific study of human sexuality. The scientific study of sex and sexuality can be traced back at least to the classical Greek period in the Western world, and even earlier in the Eastern world. Throughout history, emphasis in sexological study has tended to focus on the outcomes of sex, rather than the experience of sexuality. Specific focal areas for the study of sexology have primarily prioritized human reproduction and sexual health as topics for learning and research. The study of love, sexual emotions, human relationships, human sexual response, criminal sexual behavior, sexual function, sexual pleasure and fulfillment have been relatively recent endeavor’s in the scientific study of sexuality and ones Kelly and Jo have studied and will continue to study ad explore with you.
A sexologist is someone who has studied all areas of sex including anatomy, physiology, sexual development, sexual orientation, the dynamics of sexual relationships, as well as the mechanics of sexual contact/acts. A sexologist looks to other disciplines to understand human sexuality such as history, sociology, psychology, biology, gender studies, and more, to see how sex works in the context of social, cultural and religious environments.

There are large overlaps between what Coaching, and Counseling offers you, however, the broad differences are:
· more focused on the Past and Present
· more oriented on feelings
· and who you are ‘being’ as a person.
· more focused on the Present and the Future
· more oriented on projects or goals or skills
· and what you are ‘doing’ as a person.
We have had both counseling and coaching training and can use both or one of the approaches depending on the client’s needs.
There is never any touch or nudity during any of the sessions. It is entirely possible to learn a lot about sex and sexuality with educational videos, sexual aids, as well as diagrams. I abide by the code of conduct and ethnics provided by the Dr. Racheal Institute, and NBCC.
