What is a sexologist?

A sexologist is someone who studies the science of sex and how it makes you feel. Having spent years intensively studying human behaviour and sex, a sexologist can provide you with a clearer understanding of your own unique sexuality, as well as empowering you with the knowledge and confidence to lead a healthy sex life.

As an expert on sexual health and wellbeing, Chantelle is able to guide you through the physical, mental and social aspects of your sexual wellness. As someone with an inquisitive mind, Chantelle prides herself on being up to date with the latest research on sex and sexuality.

What happens in therapy?

During your first meeting with Chantelle she will get to know you by talking through a number of topics including your physical health, childhood/family beliefs about gender and sexuality, current and past relationships, and more. During this session she will ask you to be open and honest about your relationships, sexual activities, and sexual concerns.

The key to successful therapy is being open and honest with your practitioner. All conversations with Chantelle are confidential and judgment-free. At the end of your first session she will set homework and exercises to work on outside of your therapy time.
