male and diverse-gender sexual therapy
A Clinical Sexologist is trained to specialise and provide confidential and respectful support to clients in the aim of addressing sexual, relationship, and developmental concerns so that people can reach their full potential.
Although Dave Wells is trained in ‘Sexual Therapy’ (Sexology) for all genders, the service provided by Dave Wells is specifically targeted to males and people of diverse-gender. Females are welcome to also access ‘Dave Wells sexual therapy’ services, if the presenting issue/s includes a male, or person of diverse gender. Sexual therapy/Sexology is disproportionately made up of female service providers, which results in narrowing the options for males who are more comfortable with a male service provider. In our society, many women are comfortable to talk to each other, as well as access health services, whereas men are more likely to hide and try to personally deal with any health matters, and be less likely to access health services.
As for people who identify with a diverse gender, accessing health services can be a threatening experience, and service providers who specialise in the health-areas of diverse gendered people, are very limited. A majority of the professional experiences of Dave Wells has been aimed at males and diverse gendered people experiencing sexual and relationship difficulties.
Dave welcomes women to access his Sexual Therapy services if the person has a preference is for a male sexual therapist, and if required, he has the privilege of collaborating with a number of excellent female sexologist, if the female client requires referral.
Dave Wells has the best interests of all people in mind, regardless of gender-identity and supports clients from a holistic (whole person) perspective, rather than looking only at the presenting issue.
