What is a sexologist?

A sexologist is a professional trained in the scientific study of human sexuality. Through years of intensive study and clinical experience, sexologists gain deep insights into the physical, psychological, and social aspects of sexual well-being. They are equipped to offer you a nuanced understanding of your unique sexual profile, empowering you with the tools, knowledge, and confidence to lead a fulfilling sexual life.

Chantelle, along with her skilled team at the Australian Institute of Sexology and Sexual Medicine (AISSM), is dedicated to guiding you through the multifaceted dimensions of sexual health. Together, they combine expert knowledge and a compassionate approach to address the physical, mental, and social components of your sexual wellness.

Always at the forefront of the latest scientific developments, Chantelle and her team pride themselves on staying updated with the most recent research in the field of sex and sexuality. This commitment ensures that you receive evidence-based, cutting-edge care tailored to your specific needs.

What happens in therapy?

In your initial session, you’ll have the opportunity to meet with either Chantelle or a member of her expert team at AISSM. During this foundational meeting, we aim to understand your unique context by discussing a range of topics. These may include your physical health, family and childhood beliefs about gender and sexuality, as well as your current and past relationships.

Openness and honesty are key to a successful therapeutic experience. Rest assured, all conversations within the AISSM setting are confidential and conducted in a judgment-free zone. Our goal is to create a safe and supportive environment where you can explore and address your sexual health concerns with ease.

At the conclusion of your initial appointment, tailored homework and exercises may be assigned. These are designed to help you make progress in areas discussed during therapy and to deepen your understanding and awareness outside of our sessions.
