What is Psychosexual Somatics® Therapy (PST)?

Psychosecual Somatics Therapy PST

Psychosexual Somatics ® is a knowledge-based method for resolving sex and intimacy issues drawing resources from psychotherapy, neuroscience, trauma therapy, osteopathy, myofascial release, energy psychology and clinical sexology. The work is short-term; usually between 4-6 2hr sessions will resolve most sex and intimacy issues.  Using a combination of psychotherapeutic and bodywork techniques, practitioners facilitate the release of restrictive and uncomfortable memories in a mindful and gentle manner and within a safe and boundaried space.

Although everyone has different needs and each person has their own individual outcome from the work, the results of Psychosexual Somatics® Therapy can broadly be categorised as follows:

  • Physiological – resolving: pelvic pain, arousal issues, orgasmic or ejaculatory issues, erectile problems, post-partum or post-operative trauma. Results involve decreased PTSD or trauma-related symptoms, ability to allow enhanced pleasure, sexual satisfaction and orgasmic potential.
  • Intra-personal – enhanced sense of; self, self-confidence, enhanced libido, body confidence, creativity, personal empowerment. The process involves resolving sexual, physical or emotional abuse issues
  • Inter-personal – the process involves the ability to allow intimacy, to have nourishing relationships, and greater communication skills.
  • Social – the process engages with clearer boundaries, increased productivity in the workplace, loss of shame around sexual identity and appropriate sexual self-expression.

"Emma has a very compassionate heart and a strong sense of empathy, both of which she uses to lovingly support clients to drop more fully into their bodies. She is open-minded, non-judgmental and can safely hold space for many states and experiences and help clients ground and integrate different aspects of themselves. She is an excellent PST practitioner and I warmly recommend her."
