Couples & Sex Therapy
Helping couples keep it hot!
A couples and sex therapy podcast with experts
having the real conversations about love and sex
. . . that you’ve always wanted to have.
Borrowing concepts from the attachment theory, we dive into how sex and emotions intertwine by exploring the role of the Pursuer and Withdrawer…
While we don’t always fall neatly into a cycle, there is always a cycle, some level of interdependence. This interdependence can shift as patterns and is not concrete. A Pursuer can become a Withdrawer, or you might find that you were a Pursuer in an old relationship and a Withdrawer in your current relationship. The patterns are not your personality; they are a response to the complexity of sexual and emotional connections.
Understanding yourself and your partner requires intention but a balanced connection is worth the effort.
Great episode for EFTers – So important for therapists to know how to leverage the sexual attachment cycle in order to get change in the emotional attachment cycle and vice versa!
Sex is one of the greatest adventures in a relationship. It makes us feel alive. It can connect our bodies, brains and hearts. In fact, sexual and emotional intimacy are intertwined; we need both to be happy. With too little eroticism – our relationship is dull and with too little emotional connection – sex is mechanical. Most of us don’t know how to find this balance. And talking about our sexual needs is so risky. We might cause a conflict; we might be judged; we might not even know what our needs are. Join us, as two expert therapists have a frank, fun and informative conversation to help you keep it hot! – Sex Therapist, Dr. Laurie Watson, PhD, LMFT
The best four letter word for intimacy is not fuck but talk. Swinging from the highs of passion to the lows of rejection, sex offers us plenty to engage with and talk about. It can trigger what is best and worst in our relationships. Yet most of us find it difficult to discuss – especially outside the bedroom. I want to take away the stigma of talking about sex and instead celebrate its glorious design to enrich our lives. To truly capture the opportunity for growth in intimacy – let’s talk about sex, baby! – Couples Therapist, George Faller, LMFT
