About this CPD course

Sexual activity operates on numerous levels; the physical, emotional, cognitive, behavioural and social. This distance learning CPD masterclass will enable you to identify which components are dysfunctional and how to select and apply appropriate treatment strategies.

Sex therapy traditionally requires both partners to be present, however, with the use of hypnotherapy, clients can be treated individually. It is a field which many hypnotherapists shy away from, quite simply, because they don’t feel that they have the expertise and knowledge to deal with the number of issues that may arise.

In addition, sex, by its very nature is a very personal thing and therefore some therapists themselves, don’t feel comfortable working with clients within this area. This course aims to give you the confidence, skills and facts you need in order to do so.
