Sexuality is a particularly private and intimate area of life and therefore it is generally considered very difficult to talk about issues related to it. Sexuality is a part of life, humanity, gender identity, as well as self and body image. Every human being is sexual and every human sexuality is unique. Events in childhood and adolescence, culture, relationship problems, beliefs and misunderstandings, as well as illnesses, ailments and their treatment can affect sexual health and wellbeing.

At the clinic, you are allowed to raise all matters related to sexuality in confidence. We deal with issues that you wish to raise as the client. Talking together aims to create a positive relationship with yourself and your own sexuality as well as your potential relationship.
