Sex Coaching, with Dr Patti Britton - S4E2

There’s often a lot that can be confusing about seeking help for sexual concerns. Who do you see, what type of professional is right for your needs, how do you avoid seeing a charlatan? I spoke to the eminent Dr Patti Britton, who is prolific in the field of sexuality both for her work with clients and her training of sexual health professionals. Patti and I unpack the differences for you between sex coaching and sex therapy, and help you understand what to look for and expect when seeing someone to overcome sexual concerns.
