Help clients talk about what they desire and how they desire it—without shame or fear...
So they can deepen emotional intimacy and rediscover their sensual connection—even after betrayal or trauma
Our lives are all about relationships. Our relationship to ourselves, to each other, to our sexuality, and our spouses and intimate partners.
Let’s face it, if you’re working with people, you’re working with relationships. And not only do you need to talk to clients about their relationships, but also about their sexuality...
Because clients want to talk more about their sex life...
But they often feel like it’s not allowed. And when people can’t be who they fully are, they end up feeling ashamed, isolated and unfulfilled.
That’s why it’s important for us as therapists to get comfortable with sexuality and open that conversational door, so clients know it’s OK to be a whole, sexual being.
In this all-new studio course, I’ll share with you my simple 4-step plan for helping clients integrate all the parts of themselves so they can share their deep, intimate desires with each other.
Through in-session demonstrations with real-life clients, and an intimate studio setting, you’ll discover the same tools and strategies I’ve used to help thousands of clients overcome frustration and disconnection...
So they can be together not only sexually, but share their deepest psychological, emotional, and even their spiritual needs.
When you help them be in that space, you change everything.
Tammy Nelson, PhD
