Description

  • Strategies to resolve sexual secrets: Affairs, pornography, fetishes and more
  • Deal with the impact of sexual trauma in healthy relationships
  • Help couples who are sexless, are sexually dissatisfied or struggling with good sex in their relationships
  • Overcome your discomfort assessing and treating sexual issues
  • Help for the client who says, “I love my spouse but I am not in love with them”

Steve claimed “Marriage killed my sex life”.

Mary claimed “My perfect lover turn into a macho jerk after we got married”.

This once-romantic couple had become a marital and sexual disaster. Their sex was a roller-coaster ride; at times romantic and exciting and at other times sex awkward and inhibited. And most sexual encounters were followed by accusations and defensiveness.

They had failed several attempts at marriage counseling –because those counselors failed them.

Sex can bring out the worst in a couple. Mary ended having a short affair with an old boyfriend and when Steve found out about the Mary’s affair he was shocked. Steve was torn between wanting Mary and the marriage, but feeling his masculinity was under attack and wanting a divorce.

Their relationship changed after they saw a renowned psychologist and expert sex therapist, Barry McCarthy, Ph.D. Barry has an approach for working with couples to rebuild relationships by getting to the core of each individuals sexual issues and teaches them how to develop a new sexual style.

As a therapist who works with individuals and/or couples, you too can implement his session-by-session method and start to permanently heal your clients’ relationship wounds. Join Dr. McCarthy to learn his approach and witness your clients’ transformation from seeing sex as an individual pass-fail test of sexual performance to a sexual relationship of roles, meanings and varying outcomes.
