Sex is supposed to be this amazing thing filled with fun, love, thrill, excitement that comes so natural to you. Yet is has become a chore, a reward/punishment game where you are treated like the Pavlov dog when the bell rings. Maybe you never enjoyed it in the first place and you hate your body or it just hurts. Maybe you use it compulsively to fill that void, you can't get enough yet the void gets bigger. I work with performance anxiety, desire discrepancy, out of control sexual behavior.
Whether we are talking about PTSD or developmental trauma disorder, small or big, simple or complex, trauma is a subjective emotional response to an event or a series of events that took place in your life. This has maybe left you sad or hopeless, numb, confused and you might experience a lot of guilt, shame and fear. I use unconventional methods, like Accelerated Resolution Therapy, that work fast and help you move past strong emotions and physical reactions so that you can become functional.
You have been growing up in a culture where you constantly heard: "don't cry over spilled milk/just get over it/pull yourself by your bootstraps" and things alike. You have been told to be taught and that men don't cry. Maybe you are still feeling the remnants of your past trauma and your life is spinning out of control. You might be a high achiever, type A personality that just takes on too much and is absolutely infused with stress. It's time to gain control over your life and address these.
