What is a Sexologist

Let’s talk about sex, baby.

Songs are sung, poetry is written and movies are made. We crave it, we envy those involved and we even pay for it. Sex is always there in the background, influencing our thoughts and behaviour but for goodness sake, don’t bloody well ask us to talk about it!

It does seem daft when you think about it, and yet, that’s the world we live in. Talking about sex, even with our intimate partners is something that most of us are simply too embarrassed to do.

So we keep it in. We brush it under the rug, and pretend the problems aren’t there. Forever walking through life without resolving that part of ourselves, our relationships languishing for fear of an awkward conversation.

Or until, eventually, we’ve had enough and decide to finally do something, like talk to a sexologist – or at least find out what on earth they do, and how they can help!

So, what is a sexologist?

A sexologist is someone who studies the science of sex, and how it makes you feel. We’ll help you identify your sexual goals and then with education, resources, tools and techniques we’ll help you reach those goals, and manage your sexual growth thereafter.


“They slipped briskly into an intimacy from which they never recovered.”

- F. Scott Fitzgerald

Incidentally, one in three men over 40 will have erectile dysfunction at some time in their lives, and research shows that only 29% of men ever ask their healthcare providers about it. So if you’re in that boat, don’t worry – it’s a lot more common than you think. Just ask for some help…

A Sexologist generally has an undergraduate degree too, perhaps in psychology, medicine, nursing or social work, and then studies Sexology at a post-graduate level. For my part, I have a range of medical qualifications that support and improve my practice as a Sexologist.

My Qualifications

  • Bachelor of Applied Science, Registered Nurse
  • Graduate Diploma of Midwifery
  • Graduate Certificate in Diabetes
  • Master of Nursing, Nurse Practitioner
  • Post Graduate Diploma in Sexology

As a Nurse Practitioner I can diagnose and treat physical issues that my patients may be having, and as a Sexologist I’m attuned to the complex psychological aspects, that are often more important in resolving the issues.

As with all kinds of healthcare there are specialities within the discipline, and my particular niche is still very strongly tied to the reason I became a Sexologist in the first place, helping men recover sexual function after prostate cancer treatment, and restoring sexual health.

Eventually, I established the Restorative Sexual Health Clinic in Western Australia, and while I’m still based there I travel quite a lot, spreading the word to as many people as possible, and trying to get everyone to be a bit more honest with themselves, and their partners.

I’ve even been asked to review professional publications in this area now, and I couldn’t have been be more honoured.
