Love podcasts? Don't miss these podcasts featuring Orlagh Reid, Coach, Psychosexual Therapist & Sexual health promotion facilitator.

In Season 1, episode 20, Hazel and I discuss many aspects of sex and female sexuality, converse about the concept of self-intimacy, the role of sex education, desire discrepancy and developing a deep awareness of your own female body. We touch upon the condition of vaginismus and the impact of pornography use on some couples who come to psychosexual therapy seeking help and healing.

As a psychosexual therapist, clients come to me for therapy to discuss any and every aspect of sexuality, incl. sexual disorders, anxiety, fetishes, sexual blocks, pornography, menopause, shame, empowerment and many unspoken sensitive and hidden aspects of human sexuality. It is truly a privilege to be part of deep, vulnerable and intimate conversations that are part of a transformation process for those in therapy.’
